Fertility Clinic Shows Support for Healthy Pregnancies By Sponsoring March of Dimes "March for Babies"
Date:4/26/2010

Finding synergy in their missions for healthy pregnancies, Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT) sponsored this year's March for Babies, a fundraising walk for the March of Dimes, today in Fairfield, CT.

Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) April 25, 2010 -- Finding synergy in their missions for healthy pregnancies, Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT) fertility clinic sponsored this year's March for Babies, a fundraising walk for the March of Dimes. RMACT's sponsorship includes Kid Zone festivities at the walk's culmination in Fairfield, CT. Along with the sponsorship, RMACT showed their support with a team of patients, staff and friends who walked the route today.

As sponsors, RMACT hopes to help raise awareness of the importance of singleton pregnancies when going through fertility treatment. RMACT- Fairfield County's largest fertility clinic and egg donation center - has a 60% pregnancy success rate in patients who have had a single embryo transfer during in-vitro fertilization (IVF). Single pregnancies are ideal because they place less physical stress on mother and child. While multiple births, especially twins, have become more common in recent years, these gestations can pose serious threats, including preterm labor, premature birth, low birth weight, gestational diabetes and preeclampsia. The babies can also have long-term disabilities such as mental retardation, cerebral palsy, and vision and hearing loss.

"We believe our responsibility is to help our patients achieve healthy pregnancies, not simply to accomplish conception," says Dr. Mark Leondires, Medical Director of RMACT. "We're proud that we've been able to help over 5,000 patients have babies, and we're especially proud of our current single pregnancy rates."

"The March of Dimes thanks RMACT for its support of March for Babies and the March of Dimes mission to give all babies a healthy start. Their sponsorship helps to ensure that critical research and education will continue to benefit moms and babies in Connecticut and across the nation," said Carrie Fuller, State Director of the March of Dimes Connecticut Chapter.
