Bears of Hope Cuddle Cots

Many families experience the loss of their baby in Australia each year. It is an incredibly heartbreaking and traumatic time for parents - a time when support is crucial.


A cuddle cot is an invaluable support resource for bereaved parents before they leave the hospital without their baby or through the funeral home when saying their final goodbye. It is a cooling system that has been designed to fit within a small cot and lies beneath their baby. It enables families to say hello to their baby, keeping them close as they shower them with love and create those special memories they will cherish forever. Spending as much uninterrupted time as they need without the worry or distress to keep handing their baby back to staff, is a gift for families before saying their final goodbye.


You can help raise funds for a cuddle cot by clicking on the Start Fundraising button below and following the prompts. Once you reach the goal of $6500, we will be in touch to organise your cuddle cot.


Each day in Australia, six babies are stillborn and a further three babies die each day before their first birthday. These figures do not include the precious babies who are stillborn before 20 weeks gestation. All of these families should have access to a cuddle cot. Can you help?
