BannerUnmonitored pregnancies lead to higher risk of complications and birth of premature babies. Every year about 6500 such babies are born in Bulgaria.

‘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.
