Shaken baby syndrome involves brain injuries caused when a parent or other caregiver violently shakes an infant. About one in four cases of shaken baby syndrome results in death.

Prior to leaving the hospital with her baby, each new mother will be given one-on-one education on shaken baby syndrome by a registered nurse. Whenever possible family members who will be involved with caring for the baby will also receive education. The education focuses on infant crying and soothing your infant.
