March of Dimes
For more than 80 years, the March of Dimes has lead efforts to improve the health of mothers and babies by providing support to families in NICUs, advocating for policies, supporting improvements to care, sponsoring research, and educating medical professionals and the public about best practices. They sponsor an annual fundraising walk called March for Babies across the country, including Portland, Maine. They continue to grow the NICU Family Support program nationwide with parent support representatives helping families during their NICU stay, which we are fortunate to have at the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital. Not only does their website serve as a resource to families, they launched My NICU Baby® in February 2019, which provides tools and support to families during their NICU stay.
