Give a gift to mom with The March of Dimes this year! #ImBornTo

*The Small Things is partnering with The Motherhood and The March Of Dimes to make this post possible. All opinions are my own*
If some of you don't know, The March of Dimes is very close to my heart. I have had two babies premature. One of them whom is not with us anymore. I am currently working with a team of 39 moms and dads to represent the 39 weeks of a full term pregnancy! I wanted to share with you some information about The March of Dimes. Did you know that 15 million babies are born too soon each year? In the United States, 1 baby is born prematurely every minute and 72 do not make it to their first birthday. The March of Dimes has been around for over 75 years and they have been concentrating on helping families since day 1. What is their mission? To fight to save babies and help moms have healthy- full term pregnancies! When the original mission was accomplished, the foundation turned its focus to preventing birth defects and infant mortality. Which is another thing near and dear to my heart. 
On April 10, 2013, my dear Aubrey Elizabeth was stillborn due to a fatal birth defect called Anencephaly. 
With your help, we all can make a difference! You’ve benefited from the work of  The March of       Dimes  if you or someone you care about:               
  • Received the polio vaccine.
  • Took prenatals with folic acid while or becoming pregnant.      
  • Received  an  APGAR score immediately following  birth .      
  • Was  born prematurely or  has a premature baby.
