The Caring Cradle allows bereaved parents and families to spend more time with an infant who has passed. Our goal is to provide families a tool to allow them to remain in a comfortable environment while saying goodbye. In the past, families choices were limited to visiting the morgue, packing a child in ice, turning down the temperatures, using dry ice and other antiquated means born out of necessity. Those means while effective, are lacking in many ways. Our device was developed with input from hospitals, nurses, and families, to provide a better way. This unit allows for the whole health of the family to attain the best start to grieving the loss of an infant. The Caring Cradle provides opportunity to make memories such as rocking, dressing, bathing, family visitors, pictures, etc. that will help prevent future regret. Operation and cleaning are simple, and there is no need for any interaction from the nursing staff. There are no consumables, and no hazardous chemicals needed.
