    • Abstract:
      This article reports findings from a study on infant mortality in Michigan's child welfare system. Neonatal deaths are considered to reflect endogenous causes, or the influence of intrauterine events, whereas postneonatal deaths are considered to reflect exogenous influences, or causes related to parenting and infant care, and are thus considered more preventable. While U.S. public health officials have become increasingly concerned with postneonatal mortality rates, child welfare professionals have documented an alarming rise in the number of infants placed in foster care. Many of these infants have special health care needs, drug-exposed and medically fragile infants are contributing substantially to increases in infant placements. Although such infants are known to be vulnerable to developmental problems, researchers concur that the postnatal environment is probably more important in determining child outcomes, intensive treatment programs combined with broad-based family support services can ameliorate the negative effects of in utero drug exposure.
