CuddleCot Donation to Maternity Unit

29/12/2016

Carly Hall from Lisburn recently donated a CuddleCot to the Ulster Hospital Maternity Unit in memory of her daughter Phoebe-Anne. The CuddleCot is a cooling device which is placed in the bassinet and allows babies to stay in the room with their parents that little bit longer.

Carly was extremely grateful for the support she received during the loss of her daughter and said “I would like to thank all my friends both online and personal for helping to raise the funds which enabled us to purchase this CuddleCot. With the help of staff at Help4Louis, they liaised with the Ulster Hospital Maternity Unit to show me how the CuddleCots were used when I lost my daughter Phoebe-Anne in 2010. We support all StillBorn charities and attend regular outings and releases to engage with other parents and siblings who have gone through a similar situation.”

The Trust would like to thank Carly and all those who donated towards the purchase of this cot which is greatly appreciated.
