Donated wedding/bridesmaid and prom gowns are turned into beautiful outfits for stillborn and neonatal loss babies and given free of charge to hospitals, funeral directors and private families (on request)
All our packs are created by a small army of volunteers, many of who have suffered the loss of a child and understand the difficulty in finding something to fit their baby.
Each of our packs contain not only the outfit, but also a knitted blanket, bonnet and bootees, a nappy cover and a small teddy.
Keepsake memory items include a small hand-crafted angel baby, matching key ring and bag charm, and in our pocket packs for babies too small to dress and those under 24 weeks gestation we also include a certificate of life.
Our outfits dress babies from 16 to 40 weeks gestation.
Pockets are provided for babies under 16 weeks, and as a memory items for miscarriage.
Examples of our outfits can be found in our Gallery.
Cariad Angel Gowns fund raise to provide ‘Cuddle Cots’ to hospitals and funeral directors, so that all bereaved parents have the chance to make lasting memories with their child.
A cuddle cot is a refrigerated unit, used along with a Moses basket and gives parents up to 96 hours of time to spend with their baby, sometimes in their own home.
Each cuddle cot costs £1600.
