1 in 10 Babies in the World are Born Preterm
Even if your family isn’t a family we help, there’s a huge chance that someone you know was or has a premature baby.
Approximately 11.4% of all pregnancies result in a premature baby. This statistic remains almost the same across ethnicities, ranging from 8-13%. And 80% of premature births happen unexpectedly. Preemies are born in families of all socioeconomic statuses – it’s an issue that affects all communities.
The preemie community belongs to us all. The Gift of Life is here to champion the cause of any family where there’s a premature baby. We’re an organization by the parents of a preemie for all those who have a preemie in their lives that they love.
