BASKING RIDGE, N.J., April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reproductive Medicine Associates of New Jersey (RMANJ), global leaders in infertility care, is pleased to announce that it is a divisional sponsor with the March of Dimes for 2014.
"Our mission of one healthy baby at a time is well aligned with the goals of the March of Dimes," said Dr. Richard T. Scott Jr., a founding partner of RMANJ. "We want our patients to have safe and healthy deliveries from assisted reproductive technology and specifically in vitro fertilization. Our commitment to the combination of single embryo transfer and comprehensive chromosome screening has demonstrated delivery rates of approximately 60%, while reducing risks like pre-term delivery, often associated with twin and multiple deliveries from in vitro fertilization."
RMANJ will participate in the March for Babies events being held on Sunday, April 27th in multiple locations throughout New Jersey:
- Morris Walk – Campus of Farleigh Dickenson University, Madison, NJ
- Middlesex Walk – Johnson Park, Piscataway, NJ
- Raritan Walk – Spruce Run State Park, Clinton, NJ
- Bergen Walk – Darlington Park, Mahwah, NJ
"We are excited to have RMANJ join the March of Dimes as a division sponsor for March for Babies, our largest annual fundraising event. The March of Dimes and RMANJ share a similar vision of helping more babies be born healthy and strong. RMANJ's commitment to one healthy baby at a time through IVF is providing uncompromised success rates but with fewer complications like multiple births which increase pre-term deliveries," added Kelly Witkowski, Executive Director, Central Jersey Division New Jersey Chapter, March of Dimes.
The March for Babies is March of Dimes' largest fundraiser. The March of Dimes' mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. It provides mothers, pregnant women and women looking to become pregnant with educational resources on baby health, pregnancy, preconception and new motherhood, while also supplying information and support to families affected by prematurity, birth defects, or other infant health problems. This objective is aligned with RMANJ's commitment to maintaining high pregnancy and delivery rates through single embryo transfer (SET). Through SET, parents are able to have the family they want, with just one baby at a time, if they choose.
