We post a Question of the Month to the SIDS List Server Discussion Area and on the SIDS Information Web Site http://sids-network.org/faqparents.htm. Responses can be emailed to us at sidsnet1-at-sids-network-dot-org or posted to the SIDS List Server Discussion Area. We will then post the responses to this area of the web site. The responses are opinions and no one person is right or wrong. We do not need to include an individual's name or any other identifying factors unless the author requests to be identified in some way or they want their email address attached.
The questions for this period are:
|What insensitive or hurtful comments have been made to you since your baby's death and how did you handle them?|
