March for Babies
Doctors didn’t hold out much hope for Patricia Wipple’s daughter.
For Patty Frisbee, giving birth was not the blessed event she had always dreamed of.
In some parts of the city, 1 in 3 expectant mothers are considered obese and Dr. Adam Buckley, an OB/GYN and patient safety expert at Beth Israel Medical Center, calls it a “significant problem.”
March for Babies is March of Dimes largest annual fundraiser. Dollars raised go to support research, advocacy, community programs and education to help give every baby a healthy start.
