Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)
Has Your Family Experienced SIDS?
If your family has experienced SIDS, it's important not to blame yourself. We can reduce the risk of SIDS, but we can't prevent all SIDS deaths. There is no way of knowing which babies will be affected by SIDS.
For parents and families who have experienced SIDS, there are many groups that provide grief support, referrals and information:
Baby’s Breath is dedicated to solving the mystery of SIDS and to the emotional support of those who are affected.
You can also ask your doctor, public health nurse, or faith leader about counselling and support groups.
