CuddleCot for Peace Arch Hospital
What is a CuddleCot?
The CuddleCot is recognized across the world as helping parents who suffer the loss of a baby. Dealing with the death of a baby is an incredibly difficult time for parents and a major way that hospitals can improve their services to these bereaved parents is to provide them with time to spend with their babies. This “time” allows the family to form an important bond with their baby, dressing them, changing their diaper, bathing them, experiences that they otherwise would not get, as this can help families in dealing with their loss. The problem is that in a warm room the baby’s condition can deteriorate quickly which parents often find distressing.
How does the CuddleCot help?
The CuddleCot system cools the baby in situ, allowing the baby to remain with the family thereby providing the family the time they want.
