what happens when a baby doesn’t make it.
I was speaking to a friend’s husband the other day and heard some news that adults don’t want to hear, dont like to hear, and is often controversial.
He used to be an undertaker I was shocked with what he told me! This is what he said many years ago if a pregnancy ended early and the baby didn’t make it or was born alseep often known as a stillborn baby.The smallest micro sized babies wern’t given a thought of and most were incinerated in the first instance.Mums wernt allowed to spend any quality time with the baby and imediate family having final moments, cuddles etc.The undertaker was in fact amazed when I told him Cheeky Chums actually sold baby bereavement clothes as small as only 5 inches in length and 16 cm for hats to match.Cheeky Chums wanted to make the final moments spent with a baby no matter how small soothing,peaceful and of fond farewells.
Baby is able to be dressed with dignity, baby is made to feel comfortable, baby can look more at peace and that he or she is fully dressed in clothes that fit. Ready for family cuddles and a then settled for the final sleep. The majority of these baby clothes are made in any sizes you need to fit baby that has just passed away. Created with simple openings and fastenings for ease of dressing.
