March of Dimes leads fight for the health of all moms and babies. With the help of our community and partners, we build on our 85-year legacy of success to be there for every parent and baby so families can be healthy and strong.

Healthy pregnancies, families, communities and you

Families need a champion to help get the best possible start. Together with our partners, we work to meet the needs of families by shedding light on racial disparities in health care, raising critical money to improve mom and baby health and focusing our work to make the country more equitable for everyone.

Actions speak louder than words

Preterm birth, rising maternal health risks and death, racial disparities and a health equity gap are real problems facing families and parents today. But with help of our partners, donors and volunteers, March of Dimes continues to make an impact.

I love the group talks...I love the different experiences that everyone else has been through. It helps me along the way with my pregnancy.

Fighting for equity

March of Dimes and its partners work hard to address the maternal and infant health crisis in the U.S. Together, we’re advancing equitable health outcomes. Here’s how we do it:

What we're fighting

The issue

From the moment we're born, aspects of our society and environment form a web of factors that affect our chance to start healthy, from access to quality health care to housing, transportation and healthy food.
Working to change

A health crisis

The way our health, economic and education systems are built negatively affects some families and their babies more than others, even before birth, into their first years of life and beyond. This inequity is unacceptable, and we’re working to change that.
Igniting Impact


Together, we can ensure the health and wellbeing of every mom and baby.

Mom and Baby Action Network
