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.
SIDS is the number 1 cause of death in babies under the age of one. Yet little research is being done in Canada to help understand why these babies die. Hear these real Canadian families who have lived the unthinkable. Help us raise awareness, share this video.
Baby’s Breath and Dorel Juvenile Canada Team Up for SIDS Awareness Month
In honour of October being SIDS Awareness Month, Baby’s Breath Canada and Dorel Juvenile Canada have come together to work towards enlightening Canadians about Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
Dorel Juvenile Canada has graciously offered to donate $1 for every Safety 1st mattress sold in Canada during the month of October.
As part of this joint campaign, Baby’s Breath and Dorel hope to raise awareness about SIDS and help new parents adopt safe sleep practices for their newborn that can help decrease the risks of SIDS.
The proceeds raised from this campaign will go to Baby’s Breath Research and Scholarship Fund.
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.
