November is Prematurity Awareness Month!
Throughout November, Prematurity Awareness Month, we raise awareness of the infant health crisis of preterm birth and ask for lifesaving donations in honor of World Prematurity Day, November 17. (www.marchofdimes.org)
Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. remains among the most dangerous developed nations for childbirth—a crisis fueled by the health equity gap in our health care system that puts women and babies of color at the greatest risk.
Families affected by prematurity share an unspoken connection through their struggles, wins and losses. That connection comes together in our Health Equity Week beginning November 15, a week of action and advocacy to fight prematurity.
