Infant mortality is often associated with factors such as maternal health, access to and quality of health care, socioeconomic conditions and health policies.

Research shows that lower income families are impacted more often by infant deaths of all causes, and that Black and Hispanic families are impacted more often than white families. Most often infant deaths in our county are due to three things: prematurity, lack of prenatal care, and sleep related deaths. These are all complicated issues.
