Healthy Baby Goal
Between 2007 and 2014 seventy-five healthy infants died in Monroe County because of unsafe sleep environments such as co-sleeping with a parent or loose bedding. Obstetricians have a vital role to play in preparing families for the birth of a new baby including education about safe sleep, car seats, breast-feeding and environmental smoke exposure.
As a result of local discussions, the Monroe County Department of Public Health, District II, NY Section 10 of the American Congress of Obstetrics and Gynecology; the Rochester Pediatric Society; REACH (Referral and Evaluation of Abused Children Program); the University of Rochester Medical Center; and the Rochester General Health System, have joined forces to encourage Obstetrical and Family Medicine providers to educate expectant women about these important issues. Pediatricians and family medicine physicians routinely address these four topics during well visits. However, these are issues that should also be addressed prior to the birth of the infant, ideally as part of a woman's prenatal care.
