Bears of Hope is a charity that supports Pregnancy and Infant loss support. This company provided cherished photographs, counselling and other services, all free of charge.
A ‘Cuddle Cot’ was also provided to my friend which was previously donated by a family to the hospital who experienced the same loss. A Cuddle Cot is a cooling system that has been designed to fit within a Snuggle basket and lies beneath their baby. When a baby dies, there is a short window of time for a family to create memories, say hello and goodbye to their child and the lifetime they had dreamed for them. These cuddle cots are such a gift for these families to access as they extend the brief time to be together and allow the family so many more opportunities to shower their child with their love.
Everyone grieves differently, however for my friend and her family they are forever grateful they had a cuddle cot to give them time and the chance for family and friends to meet their baby girl.
thank you all so much.
