REDUCE INFANT MORTALITY!
Infant mortality rate (IMR) remains significantly high in America, particularly in underrepresented communities such as Native Americans.
Despite the significant spending on healthcare, the United States ranks 44th worldwide in infant mortality rate.
It has been found that babies have a high risk of SIDS if they sleep on the stomach or side, on a soft surface, or with their parents.
This risk can be decreased by providing mothers with a baby bassinet and other necessary items to care for a baby.
About 250 babies are born per minute in the United States! Some of these babies are born in worse living situations than others. Regardless, every baby deserves to live, and we care to make that happen.
Baby bassinets, a way to keep babies safe.
About 32% of IMR occur due to SIDS in North Dakota every year. In North Dakota, 37% of SIDS deaths in infants are American Indians.
