National Prematurity Awareness Month

November is National Prematurity Awareness Month!

Sawyer was born at 35 weeks after I developed severe preeclampsia. We were lucky that his lungs were fully developed and he was big, healthy boy. He needed no NICU time! But my heart aches for the babies born prematurely who weren’t as lucky.

Prematurity is the #1 killer of infants. And 1/10 babies is born prematurely. It’s one of those things that you never think will happen to you, but it’s more common than you might think. Premature births have risen 36% in the last 25 years, and need your attention now more than ever!
