Why should hospitals be certified in safe sleep for babies?

Yesterday, at Nurture KC’s Annual Event, we unveiled our “Nurturing Safe Sleep: Hospital Certification Program.” Why? In Kansas City, unsafe sleep accounts for 16% of all infant deaths, and 24% of Black infant deaths. These deaths are preventable!

Congrats to Providence Medical Center for earning the first “Nurturing Safe Sleep Champion” status among KC hospitals.
