Danielle, thank you so much for sharing your story and for inspiring other pregnant folks. You are a rock star! ... See MoreSee Less

What does good care look like??? We have a hunch that most women in the U.S. have NO IDEA. So, we'll be answering that question for the rest of this year (along with preparing "an American Birth Plan") in our "What Good Care Looks Like" campaign, and asking YOU to share the stories, posts, graphics, and articles in your groups and on your own pages--this is how we can get the word out to tens of thousands of women that they deserve better: they deserve respectful, evidence-based care they can TRUST.

Heads Up on Infant Mortality

January 19, 2015, 12:00am

Buffalo, NY

Please post and send me an email: naturalrhythms@yahoo.com, to let me know your interested in being apart this event. We need donations of yarn, people to crochet or knit, people to spread the word and help collect hats. I'm coordinating this event for Buffalo. This was posted by Jennie Joseph in ICTC group. https://www.facebook.com/groups/328675570658577/ Dear Friends, The National Perinatal Task Force is requesting your participation in making the “Heads Up on Prematurity/Infant Mortality” knit and crochet project a success. We need as many preemie and infant hats as we can get!!!! A hat for each fragile baby that is struggling to make it through her/his first year. Our goal is to flood local area hospitals’ NICUs with hand knit and chrocheted preemie and infant hats on January 19th, the National Day of Service. This year we are adding local military hospitals to our list of hospitals. We are making sure we do not forget the children of our soldiers. Our babies are being born too small, too early and with life threatening health conditions. These hats will be used as “Going Home” presents for the NICU babies when they leave the NICU. They will symbolize our commitment to and support for the families and hospital NICU staff that we are here to support them, and to make sure their babies do not just survive but THRIVE. This project is being organized in several cities by the National Perinatal Task Force (http://www.perinataltaskforce.com) to bring awareness to the need for improved maternal and infant health care. With over 26,000 infant deaths each year, the U.S. ranks 55th in the world for infant mortality. Nearly 70% of babies who die before their first birthday were born prematurely. The U.S. preterm birth rate of 11.5% also ranks among the worst in the world. The economic toll of preterm birth in the U.S. exceeds $26.2 billion annually. Please visit the March of Dimes Prematurity Report Card web site (http://www.marchofdimes.org/mis…/prematurity-reportcard.aspx#) to learn more abut your local prematurity and infant mortality rates. The patterns are on National Perinatal Task Force web site (http://www.perinataltaskforce.com) and on the Face Book group page for this event. Please make a pledge to knit or crochet 10 hats by January 1st. Become a Perinatal Safe Spot! http://nationalperinataltaskforce.wordpress.com/be-an-amba…/ If you would like to sponsor this project for your community and organize a January 19th hat delivery event please contact Jennie Joseph, LM, CPM, at perinataltaskforce@gmail.com. Get your friends, family and social organizations to do he same. Spread the word through your social media groups about the Heads Up on Infant Prematurity/Mortality project. Our goal is to flood local NICUs with these hats as “Going Home” gifts for their babies.
