|Share is an absolutely special place, where emotions never have to be explained, because NICU parents understand the whole array of emotions. Share is also a healing place for many parents who want to share their beautiful children with others and we are always healing with each other.
About Share Your Story
Share is an online community for parents of babies born prematurely or who have spent time in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Brought to you by the March of Dimes, share is intended to offer parents a safe place to talk about their experiences and gain support from each other.
Even when you do everything right during pregnancy, you can have a premature baby. Prematurity is a silent crisis in America. The March of Dimes Prematurity Campaign is a five-year, $75 million research, awareness and education campaign to help families have healthier babies.
If you've had a preterm birth, the odds of having another are increased. Talk to your health care provider about ways to reduce your chances of premature birth in the future.

We carry out this mission through research, community services, education and advocacy to save babies' lives. March of Dimes researchers, volunteers, educators, outreach workers and advocates work together to give all babies a fighting chance against the threats to their health: prematurity, birth defects, low birthweight.
