NEW NATIONAL SUDDEN INFANT DEATH RESOURCE CENTER

The National Center for Education in Maternal and Child Health at Georgetown University has announced the new National Sudden Infant Death Resource Center (NSIDRC), funded by a three-year cooperative agreement with the federal Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB).

The new NSIDRC will continue the work of the National SIDS/Infant Death Resource Center, serving as a resource on sudden infant death (including SIDS, miscarriage, stillbirth and other sudden infant deaths), on bereavement and on promoting healthy outcomes for infants from the prenatal period through the first year of life and beyond. A new website provides access to this information, and searchable databases and special issues of the MCH Alert will soon be available.

Expert selected Bereavement Resources to help parents, family members and friends deal with grief and loss are available in the bereavement selected resources link at the website or by clicking on the underlined titled in this paragraph.
