Blogging about Prematurity and Stillbirth

Blogs are a great way to raise awareness about issues that are important to you. If you have a blog, you can support GAPPS by writing regularly about the need for more research funding for prematurity and stillbirth. If you don’t already have a blog, it’s easy to start one. There are many free blog-hosting services available including Blogger, WordPress and LiveJournal. Here are some web resources to get you started:
