Woman’s Hospital recently received a CuddleCot, which was designed to help parents who suffer the loss of a baby; in a situation when every moment counts, the CuddleCot gives families extra time to spend with their baby for bonding, pictures, footprints and visits from other family members. The CuddleCot system uses a cooling pad to allow the baby to remain with his or her family.
The CuddleCot was made possible through a donation by the Brown family, who lost their newborn daughter – a twin – 18 months ago. Because of the incredible care they received in Woman’s NICU, they chose to give back in a very unique and special way.
“We’re so proud to carry on the legacy of our daughter, Corinne, through this gift,” said LaTerrica Brown. “We hope the CuddleCot will bring comfort to families and help them create precious memories of their babies.”
