Alabama leads the nation in infant mortality rates

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WIAT) -- Alabama leads the nation when it comes to infant mortality, and the governor's office is committing one million dollars in the month of October, aiming to reduce the infant mortality rate in the state.

The most recent data on infant mortality available from the CDC looks at the year of 2016. The data shows that 537 babies died in Alabama in 2016 before their first birthday.

This sight is often too familiar to families, especially mothers who've dealt with the loss of a baby after a live birth.

.................

Birth defects are cited as the number one cause of death for the over 23,000 infants that died in the United States in 2016, followed by preterm birth and low birth rate, sudden infant death syndrome, maternal pregnancy complications, and injuries.
