The Canadian Foundation for the Study of Infant Deaths has now become Baby’s Breath. Our new name effectively reflects our broadened mission to prevent sudden and unexpected infant deaths and stillbirths by:
• Advocating for and supporting research
• Disseminating information
• Providing bereavement support to families
Our new updated mandate provides a critical voice to inform, direct and shape our activities as we serve and advocate on behalf of Canadian families who have experienced the tragic loss of an infant. Baby’s Breath also endeavours to support research into health or medical conditions linked to sudden unexpected infant deaths and stillbirths. We are confident that this change of identity will assist us to mobilize support and to refocus our advocacy efforts.
Baby's Breath is launching a new video to help raise awareness about SIDS. SIDS remains the number one cause of death for infants under one year of age in Canada. We need to join forces and speak up. We need to speak up for our babies who fell asleep and never woke up. We need to speak up so that people realize that SIDS is a medical condition that will only be understood through medical research. We need to speak up to advocate for breakthrough SIDS research to begin in Canada. Help us share this video.
Thank you Team Baby's Breath!
On Sunday, June 1, members of Team Baby’s Breath ran the Calgary Marathon to raise awareness and funds in support of Baby’s Breath.
