Cuddle Cots for Andrew & Eric

Story

To commemorate Multiple Birth Awareness Week (13th - 20th of March), I am aiming to raise money to fund two Cuddle Cots in memory of my own twins, Andrew & Eric. This years MBAW theme is "leave no family behind" and in the spirit of that theme, I would like to make sure loss mumma's get to spend more time with their precious babies. It is a sad fact that multiple pregnancies carry more risk, and for some of us that risk can mean we don't get to take our precious babies home, and a Cuddle Cot (or two) would greatly benefit those families that have to go through that terrible loss. Of course, these Cuddle Cots will benefit every family suffering the loss of their baby, not just multiple mums.

 

A Cuddle Cot is a cooling system that has been designed to fit within a small cot. This effective system allows for babies who have passed away to remain with their families so that they are not required to be cooled in a mortuary environment. Cuddle Cots enable family members to travel to visit and meet the baby, siblings to meet one another and even gives parents the option of taking their baby home to lay in their own cot, in their own room or travel in their own car seat. 

 

It’s about giving parents choices and reassuring them that they can spend as much time as they like with their baby, without the fear of the baby needing to be cooled in a traditional mortuary.

 

One Cuddle Cot system costs $6,000, so I have set my goal to $12,000 to reflect this - although I'm probably being very hopeful there. ANY small amount would help though, and even if I only fundraise $50 it's going to a damn good cause!

Bears of Hope Pregnancy & Infant Loss Support Incorporated

Bears Of Hope Pregnancy & Infant Loss Support is an Australian not-for-profit organisation based in Sydney NSW, providing leading support and exceptional care for families who experience the loss of their baby. This includes miscarriage, stillbirth, genetic interruption, neonatal and infant loss. We seek to provide crucial information and embrace families during their difficult time of loss, and beyond. There are two key elements to our program that guide families through their choices when saying Hello and Goodbye to their much loved baby. Families receive a Bear Of Hope donated by another bereaved family. This allows the donating family to give their childs brief life a purpose and lasting legacy, whilst filling the empty arms of another family as they walk out of the hospital without their baby. It reinforces the understanding that they are not alone, and that there is an existing community of support. Families also receive extensive information, either in printed or online format, to help them make decisions and memories in hospital, during the memorial and beyond. Our Beyond the Bear support is unequaled by any other organisation. We provide exclusive and invaluable support packages that include; a credible foundation of parent led and psychologist facilitated support groups, private online groups, phone and email counselling and annual community events that remember individual baby’s and recognize their parents love. Additionally we have a Hope and Healing Resource Library and issue a quarterly newsletter where parents have the opportunity to contribute.
