SIDS or Sudden Infant Death Syndrome is described as the sudden death of a baby, in which the cause cannot be determined even after an autopsy. It can occur without warning and is a major cause of death of infants during the first few months of life. It seems to be associated with a sudden overwhelming respiratory infection. This can lead to abnormalities in breathing and heart rate.
IT CANNOT BE PREVENTED. HOWEVER, YOU CAN TAKE STEPS TO REDUCE THE RISKS OF SIDS:
REMEMBER: There is no substitute for good prenatal care and if you observe any changes in your baby, contact your doctor IMMEDIATELY!!
If you are fully vaccinated masking is optional in our offices; if you have not been vaccinated masking for your protection is strongly encouraged. This is subject to change as COVID levels fluctuate in our community
