March of Dimes and the Breakfast for Babies
In the state of Tennessee, about 30 babies are born prematurely every single day, and there will only be an explanation as to why for about half of them. That's why March of Dimes, with their research funding, education outreach, and volunteer efforts are so important. Tamara Currin, Program Services Director for March of Dimes, explains the biggest risk factors and warning signs of a premature birth, as well as a risky new trend of professionally induced early labor. Angela Crane-Jones, this year's Ambassador Mom for the March of Dimes, also shares the story of her pregnancy, and how thanks to Baptist Hospital housing Middle Tennessee's only Neonatal Intensive Care unit, as well as advances in research made by March of Dimes, her child's life was saved.
