The March of Dimes' new campaign, Healthy Babies are Worth the Wait, informs health professionals and the public about the complications and health risks related to inducing a pregnant woman before 39 weeks gestation. Through this new campaign, the March of Dimes aims to raise awareness among women and medical providers of the importance of having a full-term birth and allowing for natural labor, if possible.
