Fetal Infant Mortality Review (FIMR)

The Fetal Infant Mortality Review (FIMR) is a multidisciplinary Case Review Team (CRT) that studies disidentified fetal & infant deaths and a Community Action Group (CAG) that recommends and takes action on case findings.

The purpose of the Orange County FIMR is to understand social, economic, health, educational, environmental, and safety issues related to infant loss on a local level.

​The goal is to enhance the health and well-being of women, infants, their families, and service delivery systems.

​The FIMR program provides support to parents and families whose lives have been affected by the tragic death of an infant or loss of pregnancy. We can provide:

  • Maternal interviews.
  • Referrals to available resources.
  • Emotional, physical, spiritual, and social support for healing.

If you recently experienced the loss of a baby during or in early infancy, FIMR would like to extend our deepest sympathy to you.

The Orange County FIMR would like to hear your story. Your story is a unique personal journey. By sharing your experience, you can help improve future pregnancy outcomes of infants in our community.

​FIMR attempts to learn more about the causes and factors related to these early deaths. Sharing your story will allow us to better examine existing services and make improvements to develop better services to address the needs of women and infants.

If you have experienced the death of a baby during pregnancy, after birth, or up to one year of age, ​please call (407) 858-1472.
