Birth Defects Bracelets
Raise Awareness with Custom Birth Defects Bracelets
The month of January is National Birth Defects Awareness Month. Events are planned across the country in honor of this important issue. Birth defects bracelets can be used to promote the event or to raise money for the cause.
Birth Defects Awareness Month events have several goals, including:
- Raise awareness of the prevalence of birth defects. Many people are not aware that a baby is born with a birth defect every four-and-a-half minutes. A message for a custom birth defects bracelet might say, “Birth Defects Awareness – January 2014”.
- Educate people about birth defects that can be prevented. Folic acid can help prevent some birth defects, so one a bracelet may include the message “Did you take your folic acid today?” to help spread that message.
- Support families of babies with birth defects. Birth defects affect 1 in 33 babies every year and cause 1 in 5 infant deaths. A message of support may say something like “Love Conquers All Learn More About Birth Defects”.
- Raise money for research about birth defects. While a birth defect may be caused by genetic or environment factors, over sixty percent of birth defect causes are currently not known. The more that is discovered about the causes of birth defects, the more likely doctors are to find ways to prevent them.
- Inform people about specific birth defects. There are thousands of different birth defects. Birth defects include Anencephaly, Congenital Heart Defects, Cleft Lip, Cleft Palate, Down Syndrome, Fetal Alcohol Spectrum, Hydrocephaly, Microtia, and Spina Bifida
