Preterm birth [ BIRTH BEFORE 37 COMPLETED WEEKS]
Preterm birth and its complications are the largest contributors to infant death GLOBALLY.
This urgent health crisis is significantly fueled by the health equity gap in our health care system today.
Today, November 17, World Prematurity Day, I RECOMMEND we continue to raise awareness of the global crisis of prematurity. You can join us to take action by:
● Donating to support lifesaving research, advocacy and programs to improve the health of mom and babies. IF YOU ARE IN USA, DONATE TO March Of Dimes.
● Demanding #BlanketChange for policies that put moms and babies first.
● Lighting it purple, including your office, lobby or the outside of your workplace or home. If you can wear it, make it purple, too.
If you live in USA,, find out more about Prematurity Awareness Month, the 2021 March of Dimes Report Card and how together we can give every family get the best possible start.
Peace & 💘.. Love.
