Support the Infant Death Center

The Infant Death Center reaches across Wisconsin to ensure every family affected by the sudden and unexpected death of an infant is provided with grief and bereavement resources and support. We collaborate with pediatric pathologists, neonatologists, geneticists and other professionals at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin to bring expertise and knowledge to each situation. We work with communities statewide to identify and share local resources available to families and others impacted by a death.

Your support will allow us to continue our efforts to reach families and provide grief and bereavement resources statewide. You will also help to sustain our educational efforts on the prevention of infant death. Thank you for your generous support.

Pediatric pathologist consultations

A pediatric pathologist from Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin is available to consult with families and professionals to help them better understand the cause of their child’s death. The pathologist can discuss autopsy findings, medical examiner reports, test results and/or other information.
