Tomorrow's Child provides services and programs across the state to save babies lives and support families who have experienced a pregnancy loss or infant death. Through community partnerships and personal outreach, Tomorrows Child touches the life of every newborn in Michigan. We engage families, health professionals and caregivers to keep babies healthy and safe through our infant safe sleep efforts. We also provide grief support to anyone affected by a miscarriage, stillbirth or infant death.
