TULSA, Okla. — Two women who suffered from the loss of an infant are working to raise money to donate "caring cradles" to St. John's Labor and Delivery unit.
Families who deliver a stillborn child are not able to spend much time with the baby to mourn their loss for medical reasons. The caring cradle is meant to allow families to extend that time.
As many as six families on average experience these kinds of losses every month on average in Tulsa.
The caring cradles allow families to spend as long as three days in the room with their stillborn baby. These cradles cost about $5,000. The "cuddle cot" -- already received by St. John's -- is used in its Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
