HSHS St. Mary’s Hospital will hold an event to accept the donation of a Flexmort CuddleCot from the Dustin and Tasha Ruholl Family as well as inform the community about still birth, pregnancy and infant loss. The CuddleCot system can be used to discretely keep the baby cool and at the mother’s bedside following a still birth or other infant loss allowing families the time they need to say goodbye. The CuddleCot is internationally recognized for significantly helping parents who suffer from the loss of a child.

The event will feature Tasha Ruholl as she shares her family’s story and Christina Stamper from Madison’s Miracles, an organization that provides support and resources to grieving parents who have experienced still birth, pregnancy or infant loss. Representatives from St. Mary’s include Karla Thornton and Stephanie Lake who will discuss hospital programs for families who suffer from still birth, pregnancy or infant loss.

Following the event, Madison’s Miracles will provide education and a demonstration of the CuddleCot. Refreshments will be provided and time to share stories is available.
