One is every eight babies will be born premature. It's a staggering statistic, but there's help on the way.

Thursday the March of Dimes gave the Barren River District Health Department a grant for more than $18,000. The money will go toward preventing premature births.

While doctors cannot predict pre-term deliveries, there are ways to prevent them. The most effective way is to stop smoking.
