World Prematurity Day

Mum with baby

Taking place on 17 November, World Prematurity Day is a global movement to raise awareness of premature birth and the devastating impact it can have on families.

For World Prematurity Day 2017, we are focusing on what #PrematurityIs and what it means to you.

We need more people to know about the hurdles babies and parents face, and overcome, every single day.

You can help us raise awareness by sharing what #PrematurityIs to you on social media, hosting or joining a Bliss Little Lights Walk, holding your own fundraising event or donating to Bliss.
