Gill Ryder - Regional Development Officer – The Lullaby Trust
Over 300 babies still die every year of SIDS, in the UK. Research has shown that several maternal and infant care factors are more frequently associated with babies who die of SIDS, than with those who survive. There is no advice that guarantees the prevention of SIDS but parents should be informed that by following the safer sleep advice, it is possible to lower the chance of this tragedy occurring.
Parents make decisions on safe baby care, for example about where to sleep their new baby and what bedding to buy, at different times. Therefore it is vitally important for child health professionals to target all parents with a safer sleep message.
The aim of The Lullaby Trust is to provide you with the tools to help you get this sensitive message across in a clear and accessible way.

With over 30 years’ experience working with children with significant special needs, including managing a local Portage service for 12 years, Helen was well placed to lead on the NHS England funded pilot “Sleep Support for Families of Children with Autism, that went on to win a National award for The Children’s Sleep Charity. Helen trains both parents and professionals and recently supported teens directly in schools. Helen is also leading on a pilot to provide sleep support to children with ADHD, which has been funded by BBC Children in Need. When not working, Helen is a busy mum to four children and an avid dragon boat enthusiast. For more information: www.thechildrenssleepcharity.org.uk
