September is dedicated to raising awareness about infant mortality in order to help expecting mothers seek out the best possible pre-natal care. Infant mortality refers to the death of a baby before it reaches its first birthday. Though infant mortality continues to decline in the United States, the U.S. still ranks 23rd among industrialized nations in the world in infant mortality. Although it’s difficult to draw comparisons with other countries, it’s evident that the high rate of low birth weight in the U.S. is the major reason for the country?s unrelenting high rate of infant mortality. In particular, it’s a critical public health issue for African American families, as well as for Native Americans and Hispanics.
To align your organization with this cause, show your support with an infant mortality awareness promotion. You can organize special programs for the parents-to-be at your company, encouraging quality pre-natal and healthy behavior during the gestation period, which spans from conception to birth. ePromos offers infant-themed promotions that can be utilized as giveaways to reinforce the message and to promote a healthy, smoke-free work environment for expecting mothers. Our promotional trade show products, custom printed buttons, promotional buttons, and logo buttons are all excellent products to help encourage Americans to learn more about infant mortality.
