Share Your Story is a warm community filled with many different kinds of families who have been touched by, inspired by, or even personally affected by the mission of the March of Dimes. This includes many who have loved, lost, survived, cried, rejoiced and mourned during their time in the NICU or during and after a difficult pregnancy that may or may not have had the outcome that was expected. It's a place where families understand those terrifying moments with a seriously ill child, where a new preemie parent can seek and find comfort, where a mom can learn more about her child's rare condition. Because of the sensitive, emotional nature of Share, it's easy to let our guards down. But Share Your Story is a place where we need to "share with care."
Search engines like Google are a double-edged sword. They help families who desperately need our community find us. But they can also expose our community to those few people who abuse our openness. While you can choose to make your blog posts and photos private from those search engines, it doesn’t mean that people cannot find them at all. As a support community, we want to be as open as possible to help as many people as we can. If you take precautions, you can safely tell your story, share your child's photos and experiences, and meet new, understanding friends We have provided this list of community guidelines to help you have a positive experience.

We're pioneering research to find solutions. We're empowering families with the knowledge and tools to have healthier pregnancies. By uniting communities, we're building a brighter future for us all.
