Many familes are spending the holiday season in the NICU this year. Your gift will give them hope for the future and hope that families to come won't face these same challenges. We believe that every mom and baby deserves the best possible start. Unfortunately, not all moms and babies get one. Your donation can help us change that here in DC and Maryland area.
The end of this year is a crucial time for the March of Dimes mission. We’re nearing the year 2020 and the U.S. is still the most dangerous developed country to give birth in. Familes are desperate for the help of supporters like you, and we hope you’ll consider March of Dimes for a tax-deductible gift this year.
Please consider making a gift this year that will help us take steps in DC and Maryland toward:
• Bringing better maternal health awareness and prenatal care to areas without access to care, such as wards 7 and 8 in the district.
• Tackling the maternal health crisis in our nation by increasing our mission visibility and reach.
• Scaling and spreading our Supportive Pregnancy Care initiative, a model of group prenatal care that has proven to lead to better birth outcomes, especially to underserved women, to provide prenatal health care and education to a group of pregnant women. Supportive Pregnancy Care fosters health literacy and health equity and is unique in that it addresses both social determinants of health and medical factors.
• Supporting families currently in the NICU through our NICU Family Support program. This program helps NICU families during their baby’s time in the NICU by providing resources for families, supporting family members such as grandparents and siblings, and educates both parents NICU staff about the best ways to support babies, families, and each other.
Your gift will give families in DC and Maryland hope that future families won’t face the challenges they did. A donation could give life to their stories and help inspire more individuals to give a gift that could impact the lives of future moms and babies. Thank you for your support!
