Cuddle Cot Fundraiser
The gift of time for grieving families
Being able to hold our baby girl, Alana Rose, for several days after she died was a priceless gift that I will forever be grateful for. However, not all families have access to a CuddleCot (or similar cooling system) and only have a few hours to capture a lifetime of memories with their precious baby. Each CuddleCot costs about $3000. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation in any amount to help support the purchase of a Cuddle Cot that will be donated to help give grieving families the gift of time!
As a result of last year’s fundraising efforts, we were able to donate money to help UnityPoint Health - Meriter (Madison’s largest birthing hospital) purchase a second CuddleCot. This year, we are honored to partner with Harambee Village: Pregnancy, Birth, and Breastfeeding Care. Having a CuddleCot will help them expand their community-based bereavement doula services.
”Flexmort’s CuddleCot has been internationally recognized across the world as 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. This is usually in the hospital maternity/labor ward or hospice but increasingly babies are also being allowed home. Providing families TIME through the use of the CuddleCot is internationally encouraged by midwives, bereavement practitioners, stillbirth/neonatal charities, and academics. Time allows the family to form an important bond with their baby; whether changing a diaper, dressing the baby, taking photographs or simply just staying close and this helps families in dealing with their loss.”
