Families gift to bereaved parents

Families who suffer the tragedy of stillbirth will be able to spend precious time with their baby. Two new ‘cold cots’ have been donated to St Thomas' Hospital by bereavement charity Abigail's Footsteps.


The Abi Cots contain a cooling unit and are used when a baby has died during or soon after birth. Keeping the baby at a cooler temperature means the child can stay with their parents for longer, giving families the chance to grieve and say goodbye in their own time.


The cots were bought with funds raised by the family and friends of two stillborn babies. They each bear a plaque with their name.
