Better starts for all moms and babies
At Enfa, our mission is to support the best start in life, which is why we've partnered with March of Dimes to shed light on factors impacting preterm birth rates and maternal risks and death.
Over the next 3 years, we aim to develop sustainable programs that improve the lives of pregnant women across the country by increasing access to quality health care for pregnant women and new moms and decreasing preterm birth.
We will engage moms, health care professionals and policy makers with industry-leading research and educational resources.
