Welcome to In His Name

We are an official 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We hope to offer comfort to those affected by a devastating loss to SIDS {Sudden Infant Death Syndrome} or SUID {Sudden Unexplained Infant Death} through educational resources, grief support, community, and prayer. We will be sending out the "SIDS Survival Kits" to families in Alabama and Tennessee, and will extend our support to any family that finds themselves on this hard, lonely grief journey. Our goal is to reach newly bereaved parents as soon as possible after their loss of an infant. To order a kit or to find out more about our kit, please go to the SIDS Survival Kit page, or click here. No one should have to walk this road alone!

Facts About SIDS

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is one of the leading causes of death among infants one month through one year of age in the United States. The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) defines SIDS as the sudden death of an infant under one year of age which remains unexplained after a thorough case investigation, including performance of a complete autopsy, examination of the death scene and review of the clinical history. SIDS is a diagnosis of exclusion, assigned only once all known and possible causes of death have been ruled out.

  • SIDS claims the lives of almost 2,500 infants in the US each year ­ that's nearly 7 babies every day. 
  • SIDS is not caused by "baby shots."
  • SIDS deaths occur unexpectedly and quickly to apparently healthy infants, usually during periods of sleep. 
  • SIDS is not caused by suffocation, choking, or smothering.
  • SIDS is not caused by child abuse or neglect. 
  • SIDS is not contagious. 
  • SIDS occurs in families of all races and socioeconomic levels. 
  • SIDS cannot be predicted or prevented and can claim any baby, in spite of parents doing everything right.
