Memorial Health and the March of Dimes are working hard, teaming up to help families with premature babies. They're kicking off their new neonatal intensive care unit family support program.

Like little Alexa Marie Ostalza. She was born 15 weeks early. Now, she is a healthy five-year-old.
Dr. Jean Wright says families need some support, too. "Today is about providing an environment for a family, where moms and dads and grandparents can be involved with that baby and create a great family. So, this is a warm fuzzy day for us."
Statistics show one in every eight newborns are admitted to neonatal intensive care units because they are born too soon.
