Infant Loss Resources
Infant Loss Resources recognizes that the sudden loss of a child can happen to families of all different backgrounds, with significant disparities among communities of color. The Infant Project proposes to reduce the risk of infant deaths while addressing the infant mortality rate. Sudden Unexpectant Infant Death (SUID) is a term used to describe the sudden and unexpected death of a baby less than 1 year old in which the cause was not obvious before investigation. The majority of these deaths are preventable. Infant Loss Resources will work proactively with mothers 25 and younger, as current research tells us babies of younger mothers are at higher risk of SUID. This project seeks to take a comprehensive approach to ensure educational programming and resources are reaching all potential caretakers of the child to reduce the risk of infant death whether that be the mother, father, or extended family members.
