Did you know that one in nine babies in the United States is born prematurely? Being a father, I couldn’t imagine anything happening to our children. I’m so thankful they were all born with no problems and didn’t experience premature births or the challenges that come with that. However, not everyone is so lucky.

That is where the March of Dimes comes into play. The March of Dimes has been around for more than 75 years and has been concentrating on helping families since the beginning. The March of Dimes was founded by FDR in 1938 as the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis with a mission to eradicate polio….and was successful!

When the original mission of the March of Dimes was accomplished, the foundation turned its focus to preventing birth defects and infant mortality. The fight to save babies and help all moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies has been their focus for the last several decades. Generous gifts received by the March of Dimes has helped to fund important research and programs that help all babies begin healthy lives.

Are you a March of Dimes Baby?

  • Have you benefitted from the March of Dimes? Here are a few questions to ask yourself:
  • Did you receive the polio vaccine?
  • Did you take a prenatal vitamin with folic acid while or before becoming pregnant?
  • Did you receive an APGAR score immediately following birth
  • Were you born prematurely or have a premature baby?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you have benefitted from the work of the March of Dimes. Those of us who were born within the last 75 years are March of Dimes babies! The March of Dimes has truly touched every person born in the last 75 years whether they knew it or not! I didn’t know it, but think it’s pretty awesome!

I was excited to participate in the #imbornto campaign with The Motherhood and the March of Dimes! So what is the #imbornto campaign all about? The #imbornto campaign connects millions of consumers to the March of Dimes and imbornto partners by shopping, dining or donating during the Mother’s Day and Father’s Day timeframe. The campaign aims to benefit the March of Dimes by driving consumer purchases of partner products fit for mom and dad. 

The March of Dimes knows that every baby is born to do something special and unique, but they can’t do it alone. #imbornto is a celebration of their moms and dads who keep them healthy and safe, both before and after birth. This is a thank you to them – to us! The March of Dimes and its partners celebrate mothers and fathers on Mother’s Day and Father’s Day – and every day, all year long!
