About Our Organization
The Iowa Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) Foundation is a statewide non-profit 501c3 health organization dedicated to providing emotional support to SIDS and SUID families, educating families, healthcare providers, and child care providers about SIDS and safe sleep practices and funding medical research into the causes of SIDS. Bereavement support includes grief packets, newsletters, peer contacts, support groups, and special events for families experiencing an infant sleep related death. Education services include safe sleep resources such as inserts, brochures, and posters. In addition, we offer free crib cards and safe sleep pamphlets to healthcare providers and SIDS and safe sleep presentations can be requested for a variety of audiences.
In 2018, the Iowa SIDS Foundation recieved funds that provided every baby born at Floyd Valley Hospital, Le Mars, with a safe sleep gift bag. These gift bags included a cotton sleep sack and onesie for the baby, a safe sleep board book, and safe sleep educaiton. This project has continued on with the support the United Methodist Church of Le Mars. We are hopeful that the funds raised this year through the Siouxland Big Give will allow us to continue on with this project in Plymouth County for the foreseeable future and to provide safe sleep education for the residents all across the Siouxland area!
