Ever heard of a CuddleCot?
Turns out it’s a piece of equipment designed to help families who experience an infant loss.
The $4,600 machine is in Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital thanks to fundraising efforts from Aimee Stephens and Katie Pereira, who each have experienced the pain of infant loss.
What better way to carry on the legacy of our sons, Dylan and Lincoln, than by helping other families in their desperate time of need. Our hope is that by OSMH having this cuddle cot, families who experience a loss will have just a little bit longer with their baby before saying goodbye.Aimee Stephens and Katie Pereira
CuddleCot is a bassinet that keeps a baby cool, slowing the changes that occur after death.
The device can greatly extend the time the family gets to spend with their newborn, aiding in the grieving process.
