Sadly each year in Australia an average of 3,500 babies and children die suddenly and unexpectedly in the perinatal period (stillbirth to the first month of life), from Sudden Unexpected Death in Infancy (SUDI) including SIDS, or accidental death. Over a third of all perinatal deaths and all SUDIs still have no known cause.
SIDS and Kids is working to change this through the provision of education, bereavement support services and funding vital research into stillbirth, sudden infant death syndrome and safe sleeping practices.
Donate today and support the work of SIDS and Kids.
SIDS and Kids is dedicated to saving the lives of babies and children during pregnancy, birth infancy and childhood, regardless of the cause.
