Yesterday we honored Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Day. Today, we return to baby Kennedi, born early at 27 weeks. Her older brother Kayden didn't make it, but Kennedi is continuing to improve and her fighting spirit is inspiring hope in her family and all who hear her story. #PregnancyAndInfantLossRemembranceDay #NICU #prematurity #preemies #marchofdimes

There's a lot of misinformation out there about vaccinations. The March of Dimes and the CDC both strongly recommend the flu vaccination for pregnant women. Studies of thousands of women have shown that immunized moms do not have a higher risk of babies being born too soon or developing a birth defect when compared with babies born to women who did not get a vaccine. Additionally, researchers found that women who were vaccinated were less likely to experience a stillbirth. Learn more at marchofdimes.org. #marchofdimes #vaccinations #vaccines #pregnancy #fluseason
Kennedi is a little fighter. Babies in newborn intensive care require round-the-clock medical treatment for a variety of conditions, and it's remarkable how some of the tiniest patients can inspire everyone around them. Kennedi is one of those babies. You can learn more about her story by visiting March of Dimes on Facebook. #marchofdimes #shareyourstory #nicu #preemies
Our hearts go out to women whose pregnancies end suddenly, and we continue to seek answers to help more moms have healthy, full-term babies.
Autumn is here! We hope everyone has a wonderful fall season! http://twitter.com/MarchofDimes/status/514424899025530880/photo/1
