The death of a child/baby is like it's not a real death. But it is.' It does make people feel uncomfortable since it is not the natural order of things.Have you've ever found yourself where you wished you had a few more minutes to hold your baby longer before saying a final goodbye before his last breath? Some families never had this chance to say final goodbyes because of lack of a 'cuddle cot'; It is is a piece of medical equipment that acts like a refrigerated bassinet that allows Angel babies to stay in same room with parents so they do not need to be taken straight to the morgue. This allows parents to spend much time with their Angels.
Moments spent with your baby in these cuddle cots are the only memories you're ever going to have.
These moments were so precious to us as a family and the few friends who visited us at the hospital. Reasons why we are raising money to buy a cuddle cot to donate so other families can use when a tragedy like this befalls them.
