More than half a million babies are born too soon. This is equivalent to a little more than one baby every minute. Many grow up with life-long disabilities. Some don’t survive.Since the cause of 70 percent of all birth defects and 40 percent of all premature births is unknown, researchers still have a way to go before every baby is born healthy. Our grantees are working toward new discoveries for the prevention and treatment of infant health problems.Your support gives moms and babies a chance at a healthy start in life. Help fund lifesaving research, outreach to help more moms get prenatal care, or hope and comfort to families with a baby in intensive care.
