BABY 1ST NETWORK
The Baby 1st Network truly understands the importance of building trust in communities in an effort to improve birth outcomes. We also recognize the importance of providing compassionate and supportive bereavement services to families who have suffered the devastating loss of an infant. Our mission clearly reflects our determination to become a leading resource for infant safe sleep information and training, and a valued collaborator in community efforts to reduce infant mortality.
Recognizing the importance of partnerships, Baby 1st Network will strive to collaborate with the public and private sector, institutions of higher learning, faith-based and civic organizations, in addition to community-based associations in both rural and urban areas. Through these collaborative efforts and the implementation of SIDS risk-reduction activities, it is anticipated that increased awareness regarding infant safe sleep practices will consequently, reduce the number of infants who die suddenly and unexpectedly from sleep-related causes.
