Help fund a Cuddle Cot

"There is a short window of time for a family to create memories"

A cuddle cot is a cooling system that lays beneath the baby within a bassinet. 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.

Cuddle Cots enable family members to travel to visit and meet the baby, siblings to meet one another and even gives parents the option of taking their baby home.

It’s about giving parents choices, and reassuring them that they can spend as much time as they need with their baby, without the fear of the baby needing to be cooled in a traditional mortuary away from them.

Cuddle cots are needed in hospitals, hospices and funeral homes.

Cuddle Cots cost $6000. Can you help?
