Borovets, August 20-21, 2021

BannerUnmonitored pregnancies lead to higher risk of complications and birth of premature babies. Every year about 6500 such babies are born in Bulgaria. The expenditures for prevention, including monitoring the pregnancies, are many times lower than the expenditures for the care and raising the premature children. The initiative ‘Every Baby is Priceless’ is for a change in the Bulgarian legislation to guarantee the providing of the best possible care for every pregnant woman.
‘Every Baby is Priceless’  is just one of the causes supported by the organizations-members of the National Network for Children (NNC).  The Annual Meeting and General Assembly of National Network for Children took place on August 20-21, 2021 in Borovets.
