Placer County is so fortunate to have wonderful healthcare and a plethora of resources for pregnant moms. There are times when the medical profession can’t do it all and this is what this fundraiser is for. When a baby dies, we want to surround these moms with love and compassion. A Cuddle Cot is such an amazing use of technology, allowing our families to be with their babies for as long as they need
When a pregnant mom loses her unborn child, a Cuddle Cot can bring peace and precious time to the family as the Cuddle Cot provides a cooling mattress for the baby when it is not being held by family or staff. It is simple to set up and unobtrusive. More information and a personal stories can be found at flexmort.com.
The cost is around $2000 for a new machine and additional mattress pads are a benefit so will be purchased as well. Our goal will be one for each facility with the option of purchasing more for other local hospitals as needed.
Any additional funds raised will be used to purchase food gift cards to ease the financial strain these families face with mortuary and burial expenses. We can also help with the burial costs dependent on patient needs
Our moms and their babies thank you for yourgenerosity ...
(10/1 - this fundraiser was set up weeks ago but not completed and today’s news of Chrissy Teigen and John Legend losing their baby led me to complete this and send it out to everyone - our love goes out to their family during this heartbreaking time)
