We Are Raising Money to buy Cuddle Cots


For Local Hospitals

With our first Cuddle Cot we will donate to

Frimley Park Hospital Neonatal Unit

We hope that this will be the first of many Cuddle Cots we will be able to buy with your support to help families that have been is a similar situation. We would like to be able to buy and distribute as many as we can to as many hospitals that require them.

Here is what a Cuddle Cot can do:-

Dealing with the death of a baby is clearly an incredibly difficult event for parents and bereaved parents should be given the option of spending Time with their baby. Providing families Time is internationally encouraged by midwives, bereavement practitioners, still birth/neonatal charities, academics and is also recognised in International Position statements/guidance. Time allows the family to form an important bond with their baby; whether changing a nappy, dressing the baby or simply just to stay close this can help families in dealing with their loss. The problem is that in a warm room the baby’s condition can deteriorate quickly which parents often find distressing. Therefore cooling the baby is absolutely essential, however parents do not want the trauma of being separated from their baby whilst they are placed into a mortuary refrigerator to cool.

I am sure you will agree that this is a worthy addition to any Hospital Neonatal Unit.

I Have Rights Too
The Campaign For Rights Of StillBorn Babies And Support Group

In the UK a foetus (or baby) born at 24 weeks gestation is medically termed an "abortion" or "miscarriage" and not a birth.

This does not differentiate whether the baby is born alive or dead. unless the baby survives and continues to live the UK legislation term this as only an entry of still birth and the baby has no legal right to a birth and death certificate just an entry of stillbirth.

We feel that this is wrong and needs to be addressed.

Our hope is that we can force the government to change the law regarding this. We believe every woman who has given birth if the baby is stillborn has a right to a birth certificate and death certificate no matter what.

We have been through this terrible experience ourselves and to just have given birth to a stillborn child is traumatic enough for both parents. But after the event to just be given a certificate of stillbirth adds insult to injury.

We want to get the law changed and feel it is only right that the parent or parents are given a birth certificate, a death certificate and a certificate of stillbirth.

Why does this matter?

Without a birth certificate you baby will not be a legal entity. You will not have any documentation with you babies name upon it.

At such a stressful time for family members it is vitally important that the mother takes home something more sensitive to prove she had given birth regardless of the fact that the baby might be stillborn.

Mothers of babies born that live longer get a birth certificate, why not all mothers?

We also want to offer support and comfort to other parents who have also been through this, whether it has been recently or some time has passed since this experience has happened.

As we have been through this experience ourselves we are ideally placed to try to offer some support and comfort to you as and when needed. Either on a personal level or through the forum.

Consider This

A woman is pregnant expecting her child and looking forward to all the joys they can bring.

Let us look at the baby at 24 weeks old.

The baby now weighs more than 1.3lbs or 600g. Baby is starting to fill the space in your uterus (womb). From crown to heel she could measure 30cm. Though your baby still has little body fat and her skin is thin and fragile, baby is well-proportioned.

The brain is growing rapidly, taste buds have fully developed, and baby's footprints and fingerprints are continuing to form and is developing a sense of touch. Inside baby's body, it is perfecting its lungs and packing on the pounds. Baby will gain ½ pound this week alone.

Baby's ears are fully functional now, and since they are, you may notice that loud noises and sudden movements can startle it. Baby's got a fully developed inner ear now. This means its sense of balance is working and he can tell whether its hanging upside down or right side up.

It almost looks and acts just like a fully grown baby but on a slightly smaller scale.

Yet if the baby is born now there is a good chance it may survive but if Stillborn it will not even be recognized by law as a baby and will have no certificates to mark its birth.

We want to change this uncompassionate ruling!

Our Campaign The Purpose
We want to get the government to change the law regarding this. We want to change mothers receiving a heartless certificate of stillbirth and a more companionate death certificate.

However the mother has also given birth. Therefore it is only right that the mother be given a Birth Certificate also.

This way the baby will by law be able to have been named and the birth will be legally registered.


Due to the government not moving on this issue dispite all our campaigning. We have decided to change focus and move to supporting parents and obtaining Cuddle cots for hospital neonatal units. We need money for these cots your donations are greatly appreciated.

Support Group
How Can We Help You?

We would like to offer some comfort and support to people who are going through or who have already had this terrible incident happen to them.

How can we do this? We have set up a forum for people to offer either comments on or about our campaign and also for people to offer support and comfort to others through the forum.

We will also be offering a support phone number but as funds are very limited at the moment we are unable to offer this. However we do hope to do this very soon.

What makes you think you can help us you might ask. Well we have been through this ourselves and have fought a long and hard battle with the hospital concerned about various issues. For more information on this please go to the About Us page.
