Every Woman Florida Initiative
Every Woman Florida is a collaborative project between the March of Dimes and the Florida Department of Health aimed at raising awareness on the importance and benefits of being healthy prior to pregnancy and promoting changes at the individual, healthcare provider and system level. The overarching focus is to integrate preconception health into existing healthcare services.
The Every Woman Florida website serves as an information portal for healthcare providers on preconception health. The site contains health tips, assessment tools and printable patient education handouts and guidance for providers on provision of preconception health services based on the CDC recommendations. Please visit www.everywomanflorida.com for more information.

What is Show Your Love?
Show Your Love is a national campaign designed to improve the health of women and babies by promoting preconception health and healthcare.
Preconception health is the health of a woman during her childbearing years before and between pregnancies.
Because 49 percent of pregnancies in the U.S. are not planned, it is extremely important for women to improve their health before pregnancy to be healthier mothers and have healthier babies

Healthy Babies are Worth the Wait is a new public education and awareness campaign funded by the March of Dimes to raise awareness about the important development that occurs during the last few weeks of pregnancy. The aim of the campaign is to encourage women to allow labor to begin on its own if their pregnancy is healthy and dispel the myth that it’s safe to schedule a delivery before 39 weeks of pregnancy without a medical need.
