The Shaken Baby Alliance is a voluntary, non-profit, service and advocacy organization serving victim family members and professionals concerned about shaken baby syndrome (SBS). This syndrome occurs when a child is shaken back and forth in a "whiplash" motion so that delicate veins over the brain tear and bleed, causing pressure on the brain. The damaged brain begins to swell, and vital functions, such as heart rate and breathing, are affected. Many people do not realize the harm that can result from shaking an infant or young child. The goal of the alliance is to provide information and support to affected families, serve as advocates for victims, and provide educational services as a preventive measure. The alliance is international in scope, and provides brochures in English and Spanish.
