National Birth Defects Prevention Month

Month of January
January is National Birth Defects Prevention Month! Join in the nationwide effort to raise awareness of birth defects, their causes, and their impact!

Each January the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) raises awareness among women and families on actions they can take to help have a healthy baby. January is also a time to recognize people living with birth defects. Thanks to ongoing medical advances, children born with birth defects are living longer. These children and their families still need help. They often need specialized treatment, continued care, and strong social support to improve their overall quality of life.
