Unexplained Child Death (SIDS & SUDS)
The loss of a child is one of the most devastating things that could happen to a parent. Sometimes a child’s death can be explained by way of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) or natural causation.
However, there are times when the cause of death is unknown, or the circumstances are suspicious. Some parents find themselves being investigated for causing or allowing the death of their child. If other children are involved children’s services may become involved with those children being removed from the care of the parents whilst the investigations are ongoing, and the cause of death established.
