Warren Anthony and Amelia Noel made their early entrance to the world on March 12, 2023. While their time with us was too short, their memory continues to drive us every single day. We have been pursuing a way to honor them and help others, and we believe we have found the perfect way to do so.
We have coordinated with Tampa General Hospital, where Warren and Amelia were born, and where we received such extraordinary care. It was determined that we could honor the babies and benefit future families who find themselves in the same heartbreaking situation as we did by providing CuddleCots for the NICU and Labor and Delivery.
For those unfamiliar, CuddleCots are a medical bassinet that cools the baby/babies in a non-medical looking fashion which enables bereaved families to be present and have more time with their baby/babies. According to the CuddleCot website, “Providing grieving families time through the use of Cuddle Cot is internationally encouraged by midwives, bereavement practitioners, and academies. Time allows the family to form an important bond with their baby and helps them in dealing with their loss.”
For further information about Cuddle Cots you can visit their website at: https://cuddlecot.com/
CuddleCots give bereaved parents the gift of time, which is something we so desperately needed for our loss of Warren and Amelia. The CuddleCots would also be affixed with a plaque bearing Warren and Amelia’s names to continue their legacy and memory.
We have been overwhelmed by the kindness and support we have received during this time. Many people have come to us asking how to support or donate in memory of our children, and this is the perfect avenue to do so. If you feel inclined, we are accepting donations towards the purchase of two CuddleCots. 100% of the money donated will go to the purchase of the CuddleCots and we will be personally overseeing their purchase and delivery to Tampa General Hospital.
Thank you for reading, for considering a donation, and for remembering our sweet Warren and Amelia.
