A Campaign for Full-Term Babies
Interview: Alan Fleischman, MD
Senior vice president and medical director
March of Dimes Foundation
Choosing to deliver a baby even a week or two early can have serious consequences for the newborn’s health. For example, an early birth can necessitate a baby spend extra time in the hospital, a cost everyone pays.
Alan Fleischman, MD, will talk with Barbara Lewis about a new March of Dimes campaign called "Healthy Babies Are Worth the Wait." It promotes full-term pregnancies.
Dr. Fleischman is senior vice president and medical director of the March of Dimes Foundation.
