March of Dimes
Every year in the United States, more than half a million babies are born too soon, almost 54,000 of them right here in Texas.
The March of Dimes is collecting parenting supplies to help out expecting moms and their babies. It’s all part of the Cowtown Cradles Community Baby Shower in Fort Worth.
A citywide baby shower is taking place Friday in Fort Worth to help provide some basic child care items for expectant mothers in need.
As the trend of pregnant women scheduling early inductions or c-sections before their baby’s due date increases, so do dangerous health complications, experts warn.
The number of infant deaths in the 76105 zip code in southeast Fort Worth is higher than any other area in the city. But, a program that targets African-American women is hoping to change that.
A Fort Worth family that faced the horror of losing their infant turned their grief into a way to help others, and people across North Texas will also be able to help this week thanks to the March of Dimes.
