Live and on Call for You: The ABCs of Safe Sleep

Ensuring a safe sleep environment for your baby will put your mind at ease and allow you and your baby to sleep peacefully at night. Dr. Treme, pediatrician with the Children’s Clinic of SWLA, will be live and “on call” for you to talk about best practices for safe sleep with your little ones. Dr. Treme sees the newest and littlest patients and helps answer questions from parents everyday to keep infants safe while they sleep.

To promote Safe Sleep Awareness Month in October, Dr. Treme will join Lake Charles Memorial for an episode of Live and On Call to give advice, from a medical perspective, about how to keep infants safe while sleeping and help educate parents or caregivers to reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and other sleep-related causes of infant deaths. This will take place on Tuesday, October 5, at 12 p.m. from the Lake Charles Memorial Heath System Facebook Live Event.

Approximately 3,500 infants die annually in the United States from sleep-related infant deaths, including SIDS and accidental suffocation while sleeping. Conscious changes to sleep environments can greatly reduce the risk of all sleep-related infant deaths.

Dr. Treme received a Bachelor of Science in Biology from McNeese State University in 2009 and her medical degree from LSU School of Medicine in Shreveport in 2013. Dr. Treme completed pediatric residency in 2016 at the University of Texas in Houston.

Lake Charles Memorial Hospital for Women has been designated a Gold Safe Sleep Champion by the National Safe Sleep Hospital Certification Program. It is the highest designation offered by the program. Memorial for Women is the first infant safe sleep certified hospital in Louisiana.
