About Us

Our Babies Count is a movement to let everyone know too many Ohio babies are dying. We encourage pregnant women to go to the doctor early and regularly to prevent babies from being born too soon – the #1 cause of baby deaths in Ohio.

Learn more about why this affects us all and ways you can help fix it. Pregnant? Find out how your health insurance company can help with free rides to the doctor, child care…lots of things.

Ohio public health officials, policy makers, and medical and health care professionals created “Our Babies Count” to support the many local groups working to save Ohio babies.
