Hyattsville, MD 20784-0426
The SIDS Educational Services, Inc. (SIDS-ES) is a voluntary, self-help organization that assists those who have lost children to sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) to deal with their grief. Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) is the sudden death of any infant or young child that is unexpected by history and in which no adequate cause for death can be found. The organization publishes a book entitled "The SIDS Survival Guide" that is written by parents who have been affected by SIDS and experts for bereaved families and professionals. Also available is a brochure "Empathetic Support to Newly-Bereaved Families and Those Who Care About Them." SIDS-ES provides free peer contact assistance to newly bereaved families and has a book sponsorship program whereby companies, individuals, and groups donate books to newly bereaved families (often via SIDS support groups) as well as to public libraries, hospitals, doctors, police officials, and emergency responders.
