Comfort When You Lose a Baby
When you experience the loss of a baby, you may feel overwhelming grief. To give you the gift of time with your baby, Wayne UNC has a “cuddle cot.” The cuddle cot cooling system allows you to spend time with your stillborn baby.
If you experience the loss of a baby, you can choose a handmade dress or romper to take home as a keepsake or dress your baby. Women volunteers at Wayne UNC, who form a group called Angel Kisses, make the clothing.
