Help Blessings for Babies During Prematurity Month

Join Blessings For Babies during World Prematurity Month. During this month Blessing for Babies aims to raise awareness about the issues associated with preterm birth and aid those families giving birth to a beautiful preemie.

The term prematurity refers to the birth of a baby less than 37 weeks after the mother's last normal menstrual period (gestational age). It is also known as preterm birth or premature birth. Premature infants are often referred to as preemies or premmies. Each year, about 15 million babies – which is about 10% of all babies – are born prematurely around the world. Diabetes, high blood pressure, smoking, and obesity increase the risk of giving birth prematurely.
