A Cooling Cot, such as the CuddleCot™, Mira Cradle, or the CaringCradle, cools the baby in situ allowing the baby to remain with the family in the hospital room thereby providing the family time they want. The cooling pad is placed in any moses basket, crib, pram or bed; it is connected by a specially insulated hose and is quietly cooled using the cooling unit.
Why are the cots needed?
With the cot a baby can stay with the parents in the hospital room for the entire time and it slows down the baby’s body from changing too quickly. Baby won't have to go to the morgue initially and no cooling with ice bags (alternative way) is required. Parents will gain important time with their baby without having to juggle ice bags or deal with dampness.
How will we succeed?
Many bereaved families are looking for ways to give back to a hospital, help other families and do something positive in the memory of their child. We believe that we will be able to work with families who have experienced the death of a child to make this campaign successful.
Help us give the gift of time by either supporting the campaign (donations will be allocated to greatest need) or by picking a specific active fundraiser.
Every hospital with maternity ward in Canada will be provided with a cooling cot - a crucial piece of equipment used to support parents who experience the loss of their baby. The cooling cot can help them spend precious time with their child.
