What do you expect with all those crack head baby mamas. No wonder they have so many premature babies. Illicit drug use is a leading cause for premature births along with lack of prenatal care.

Let's see I have NEVER done drugs, took care of myself and still went into preterm labor. Delivered my daughter 16 weeks early. She is now a beautiful 17 year old.

Prematurity is often unpreventable and of unknown cause despite the best prenatal care.

I have a sister and a friend who had premature children. Both woman took care of themselves and had proper prenatal care. People try to blame premature births on alot of different things but the fact of the matter is can happen to anyone during any given pregnancy, of course some are more high risk for it to happen, but still it can happen to anyone. My friend has 2 children already and is a nurse her baby is still in the hospital but doing better. My sisters child was born 3 months early and weighed only 2lbs he was out of the hospital in just under 3 months and is an amazing 3 yr old, you wouldn't even know he was premature! It would be awesome though if they could cut premature births in half what a miracle that would be for these mothers and these precious babies!

Why do they got to make it sound like it is the most horrible thing and it has to be cut in half and it is bullsh*t they are even grading. You cant help having a preterm baby. I had one, I had no amnio fluid, so if what they are trying to is cut everything in half, what are they gonna say to these mothers who have problems. Oh, well we are just gonna let your baby die because we want the state to cut its preterm grade in half. Cant people worry about their own life. Who seriously sits around and says Im gonna grade each state on their preterm birth.....who cares babies are surviving.

Mothers March of Dimes encourages abortions in events they do not think will make it to term or may have some birth defects. I would not give this organizationa a single dime and I use to help raise money for them. They do not want anything but perfect babies born.

First off, "Oh Oh" you have NO clue what you are talking about! In 2006 I had twins that were born at 32 weeks. Like the other moms on this bulletin I was healthy, had fantastic prenatal care, took folic acid & prenatal vitims and did NOT do any illegal drugs of any kind! So get your facts straight before you make judgements. And for Toadly, you need to get your facts straight, too. Both Oh Oh and Toadly need to go to the March of Dimes internet site...you may learn a thing or two. As taken from the MOD internet site: "MOD policy states that abortion is not the solution to the problem of birth defects. The MOD has long maintained its neutrality on the issue of abortion. All grantees and contractors regardless of their personal opinions are prohibited from using MOD funds for abortion research, to pay for abortions, or to give directive advice concerning abortions." My kids are now 4 years old, smart as hell and healthy as any other non-premature baby

Check out the above link to their 2008 tax forms I got directly from their website. Total of $230,000,000 in revenue.$232,000,000 in expenses. 18% in grants given. 42% in salaries, wages, etc.$56,000,000 of that $99,000,000 was for programs.$3,000,000 paid to top employees.$615,000 to president alone. Lots of other expenses. I guess you add grants with program expenses that amounts to 42% of expenses. Where's the other 58% going? I know their programming expenses are high. I guess you could consider half of their revenue is spent on giving out grants and programming for education and research. Seems like they're wasting lots of cash. There has to be a more efficient way for them to accomplish their "mission".

A person can be thrown into labor just by being scared by someone or something else, happened to my mother inlaw and my husband was born 15 weeks early and you wouldnt know it today he is a healthy man. It can happen to anyone at any time.

Most cases it's nutritional deficiency. Also big pharma drugs (over the counter also), vaccines and environmental pollution(including processed food)

Were your prenatal vitamins synthetic or food based? Did your wonderful doctor check your vitamin D levels? Did you take at least 12,000 to 15,000 mg of vit C daily. There is way more to care than useless conventional medicine--read up!

I think this would also have to do with the increase of multiple births, due to older mothers and younger mothers who have had trouble conceiving, turning to doctors to help get pregnant. Even the most basic fertility help like the drug clomid results in very high multiple birth rates.
