November 17 is recognized as World Prematurity Day. The March of Dimes' Prematurity Campaign is in full effect this month. 

Below is a screencap of the March of Dimes' newly released state report cards (please visit the March of Dimes site to click on individual states for each state's report card). Their map is paired here with an updated map of state cesarean delivery rates using the same 2011 preliminary birth data.
