The March of Dimes helps pregnant women know what to worry about and what not to worry about when it comes to having a healthy baby. Through their Pregnancy & Newborn Health Education Center women can get free one-on-one, confidential answers to their questions about pregnancy, preconception, newborn screening and related topics. This on-line center offers a special section on birth defects and genetic conditions. For more information, contact your local chapter.
