Have you heard of Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS) or Inflicted Traumatic Brain Injury? If yes, then you will know how serious and devastating it is. If no, then please take some time to read this.

Site under construction.......please bare with us

Shaken Baby Syndrome/ Inflicted Traumatic Brain Injury is a form of Child Abuse called Abusive Head Trauma (AHT). This is a servere and preventable form of child abuse that will result in life changing consequences.

SBS results from violently shaking a baby/infant. Although babies (newborn to 4 months) are at greatest risk of SBS, it has been seen in children upto five years of age.

SBS may result from shaking a baby alone or from impact, with or without shaking. The resulting Whiplash effect will cause bleeding on the brain, blood clots or/ and damage to the eyes.

All victims will suffer serious health issues as a result of been violently shaken such as blindness, deafness, brain damage and paralysis. Sadly, one in every four Babies die from SBS.

 

Why think of SBS as a taboo subject? if we don't talk about it

then no one knows about its meaning and there is no awareness.

Shaken Baby Syndrome can be the result of an accident, a spare of the moment thing. 

It may be a family member, your husband, your wife, your partner or your friend. In most cases it's someone we know and trust. The most important thing is that you NEVER blame yourself for something that this person has done. If you notice something unexplainable about your child like bruises, teeth marks and so on, I have put a link to the NSPCC website at the bottom of this page.

We will never know all the facts of why someone would do such a cruel thing and if we could perform a miracle and stop child abuse we would but if we can prevent a child from being violently shaken by offering vital information, it will hopefully have an impact on Abusive Head Trauma in the UK.

 

Hot Topic

Did you know that Dr. Waney Squier has been struck off after giving false evidence based on her own opinions in Shaken Baby Trials?

Waney Squier went outside of her field of expertise to give evidence based on false facts to dispute the existence of Shaken Baby Syndrome,

She has since been struck off.  We had long discussions with BBC Panorama about the hard evidence and life long consequences of Shaken Baby Syndrome proving that it does indeed exist.  Joanne Senior and son Charlie live with the life long consequences of Shaken Baby Syndrome and took part in the making of the

BBC Panorama episode, Shaken Babies: What's The Truth?

Annual Candlelight Vigil

We held our 3rd Annual candlelight vigil on 1st March 2017
Here are some of the beautiful candles lit for all SBS angels and survivors.

1st March is the anniversary to when Charlee gained his angel wings. So in his memory we decided to set up a facebook event and invite people to take part in lighting a candle or tealight to spread awareness of Shaken Baby Syndrome. 

To take part then follow the instructions above and share your lit candle at 

www.facebook.com/charleesangelssbsitbifoundation or on Twitter 

@CharleesAngels1 using 

#oneshareonemoreaware

If you are an SBS family, maybe snap a shot with a photo of your angel or survivor. 

This is about recognition for Shaken Baby Syndrome and acknowledging all victims.
