Safe Baby is a program for expectant parents, caregivers & community members. Our Safe Baby program consists of two parts: Infant Safe Sleep and Shaken Baby Syndrome Awareness & Prevention.
Infant mortality continues to be a significant problem, not only in Washtenaw County, but across the United States. Among the leading causes of infant deaths are unsafe infant sleep practices and abusive head trauma (also known as Shaken Baby Syndrome). The goal of our Safe Baby program is to educate expectant parents, caregivers, and community members about infant safe sleep practices and Shaken Baby Syndrome prevention in order to reduce and eliminate infant deaths.
