The death of an infant is such a profound loss.  It’s very important to give families appropriate time to grieve the loss of their baby. The opportunity to spend time with one’s baby and, if requested, allowing other family members or friends that same time with the baby is essential. This time validates the infant’s existence and death while also acknowledging the parents loss.  It provides time to grieve.

A CuddleCot, donated in February 2016 by Cora Farrow and her mother Connie, will allow parents and families to keep a stillborn infant with them for as long as they wish while they remain in the Hospital. Through Cora’s loss and generous spirit she is helping other families receive the precious gift of time in a moment where nothing is more valuable.

CuddleCot is a quiet cooling pad that can be placed in a baby basket/bassinette.  CuddleCot has been internationally recognized with significantly helping parents who suffer the loss of a baby. Dealing with the death of a baby is clearly an incredibly difficult event for parents and bereaved parents should be given the option of spending time with their baby, something achieved through the use of a CuddleCot. CuddleCot allows the family to spend every precious moment with their baby at a time in their lives where every minute counts.
