Grief is a natural response to loss, and everyone experiences grief differently.

We know that not every family may choose to use a CuddleCot, but we do hope that every family is offered the option to use a CuddleCot when the need arises.

It is our mission to help raise awareness of stillbirth and neonatal death and the wider support that is available.

Making memories

The CuddleCot gives grieving families the gift of time and allows them to form an important bond with their baby and make memories, and helps them in dealing with their loss.

In the video by Beyond Bea, the realistic scenario explores Chris and Kylie's experience making memories with their daughter, Effie alongside their midwife Steph.

Steph explains to Chris and Kylie the changes in their baby Effie and sets up a CuddleCot.

You can find more videos about memory making on Beyond Bea's website.

Talking about grief with GriefChat

Everyone grieves in a way that is unique to them and their relationship with the person who has died. Well-intentioned people may say to you, 'Time is a great healer.' Sometimes, however, it can seem that life is more difficult as the weeks and months go by.

We know that no-one can understand exactly what your loss feels like to you. But we do understand that it's sometimes easier to talk to someone outside of your friends and family about grief and the impact of bereavement of your life and this is why we offer the GriefChat service.

GriefChat was created by bereavement experts and by clicking on the GriefChat box below, you can chat directly to a specially trained bereavement counsellor. GriefChat counsellors are experienced in supporting bereaved people and will listen to your story, explore how your grief is affecting you and help you to find any additional support you might need.

GriefChat is a completely free service and is available Monday-Friday, 9am-9pm (except Bank Holidays).
