Through this new campaign, the March of Dimes aims to raise awareness among women and medical providers of the importance of having a full-term birth and allowing for natural labor, if possible.   For more information and resources related the MOD’s 39 weeks campaign, visit:  http://www.marchofdimes.com/pregnancy/getready_atleast39weeks.html.
