November is Prematurity Month.
The March of Dimes is a non-profit organization that works for the health of mothers and children. Prematurity month helps give the organization a focus on the number of premature births that occur in the United States. According to March of Dimes, ten thousand premature babies are born every year in Missouri alone. State Director of Communications for March of Dimes, Diane Droege, says the medical community doesn't know all the reasons for premature births.
