About March for Babies

Funds raised at March for Babies support research and programs that help moms have healthy pregnancies and babies begin healthy lives. They will also be used to bring comfort and information to families with a baby in newborn intensive care. 

Methodist delivers more babies and treats more critically ill infants in our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit than any other hospital in the region. Join our team and show your support of Methodist’s commitment to our patients and the mission of the March of Dimes to improve the health of all moms and babies.
