Across the country, including here in the Laredo area, lots of people helped bring awareness to infant mortality. This was one of hundreds of baby buggy walks held in the United States on this day. These women gathered in Rio Bravo with their babies to help educate others about this important issue. It’s all part of the Infant Mortality Awareness Month. Besides the baby buggy walk the mothers and their babies were given goody bags. Agencies from around Laredo came together to pass out information about healthy babies and also give the mothers a health check if they wanted one.
