Our children are our future, and as parents and as human beings, we will do everything in our power to help protect them. However, despite our best efforts, innocent lives are sometimes lost. When the unexpected and horrifying loss of an infant happens, it’s an absolutely gut-wrenching tragedy.
As citizens of the United States, we have certain expectations from our healthcare system. After all, aren’t we a first-world country? The fact is, there is a glaring discrepancy between the quality of care that we believe we will receive and the actual treatment we get. America ranks appallingly low on protecting our infants, far below other developed countries such as Canada and the United Kingdom. Out of every 1,000 live births, there will be 6 deaths. What, exactly, is causing this high infant mortality rate in our country?
The top five causes of infant mortality in our country are:
- Birth defects
- Low birth weight/preterm complications
- SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome)
- Pregnancy Complications
- Fatal injuries
One thing that stands out about these leading causes of infant death is how preventable many of them can be. Please understand that if you have lost a child, you are absolutely not to blame for the loss of your child. In many cases, your healthcare provider may be to blame for your loss. Birth defects, which affect 1 in 33 babies, could have been detected by the medical team that oversaw your pregnancy. Mothers whose pregnancies were considered high-risk should have received extra care and monitoring from their doctor to prevent complications during labor and delivery.
