Sudden infant death syndrome, or SIDS, is the sudden death of a newborn in their sleep. Despite nearly 3,500 occurrences of SIDS each year, the exact cause is still unknown. That is why safe sleeping positions are critical during your newborn’s first few months of life. Here are a few tips to ensure your infant is sleeping not just soundly, but safely.
Childbirth and routine gynecologic care can be extremely personal and intimate experiences for women of all ages. Our midwives treat every woman much like they would a friend, with the same standards of care they’d choose for themselves.
