Bears of Hope Cuddle Cots

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


A cuddle cot is an invaluable support resource for bereaved parents before they leave the hospital without their baby. It comes with a cooling system that has been designed to fit within a small cot and lies beneath their baby. It enables families to keep their baby close and create those special memories they will hold onto forever; spending as much uninterrupted time as they wish without the worry or distress to keep handing their baby back to hospital staff to be cooled in a traditional cooling environment.


Cuddle Cots enable family members to also travel to visit and meet the baby and siblings to meet one another.


It’s about giving parents choices and reassuring them that they can spend as much time as they like with their baby before saying goodbye.
