Group Name: Baby’s Breath (SIDS)
Description: The Canadian Foundation for the Study of Infant Deaths has now become Baby’s Breath. Our new name effectively reflects our broadened mission to prevent sudden and unexpected infant deaths and stillbirths by:

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is the #1 cause of death for healthy infants under the age of 1 in Canada. For nearly 40 years, the Canadian Foundation for the Study of Infant Deaths (CFSID) has been Canada’s only foundation solely focused on SIDS, and also dedicated to reducing infant mortality and other sudden and unexpected infant and child deaths including stillbirth and miscarriage. Since their inception in 1973, they have pursued our mission through research, advocacy and a peer-to-peer bereavement support network to assist families who have faced the tragic loss of an infant.
