I had the privilege of attending the Los Angeles Healthy Moms, Strong Babies Luncheon last week and was able to learn more about the outstanding organization that is March of Dimes.
For those that aren’t familiar with this organization, March of Dimes leads the fight for the health of all moms and babies. “We believe that every baby deserves the best possible start. Unfortunately, not all babies get one. We are changing that.” While providing comfort and support to families in NICUs, the organization educates the public and medical professionals about best practices and life saving research. Amongst this group are women of all ages, socio-economic backgrounds and demographics, supporting moms throughout their pregnancy, even when everything doesn’t go according to plan.

Humbled and inspired, I was given the honor to speak and share my story of loss as well as listen to the stories of many other women. Seeing the support of these mothers who have also experienced loss lead me to learn that I am truly not alone.
I invite you all to learn about this organization of incredible women at http:// marchofdimes.org/ in hopes that you can become inspired as well.
