A baby’s future is brighter when she’s born strong and healthy. Your gift could help give babies their best possible start.

Ask an expecting mom if she’s hoping for a boy or a girl. She’ll probably say, “It doesn’t matter, as long as the baby is healthy.”

But not all babies are. In fact, U.S. families are in crisis. The costs of care are skyrocketing. The preterm birth rate is getting worse. And women of color face devastating disparities in care and outcomes.

Your gift powers our fight for change. It could support direct action like education, prenatal programs and NICU support. And help us continue to find solutions and preventions based on decades of prematurity research. Or fuel advocacy efforts to improve health equity. Because when we give babies their strongest start, we build a brighter future for us all.
