Nancy's new book

Full of Life by Nancy O Dell

Congratulations and thank you to Nancy O’Dell (Access Hollywood), a long-time March of Dimes Mom, who just released a new book for moms-to-be.

 

With a good dose of humor, Nancy shares her experiences of what she didn’t expect when expecting her own baby. Healthy, beautiful Ashby is now 22 months old. On the TODAY show last week, Nancy talked about how being a March of Dimes spokesperson made her more aware of ways to prepare, such as taking folic acid. 

 

March for Babies helps raise vital funding for programs that educate women about how to have a healthy pregnancy. Nancy and other Hollywood Moms are teaming up – and you can help too. Donate to their Los Angeles team to honor a mom-to-be in your life!
