LOGAN (AP) — A Utah hospital is among a growing list of medical centers that now have a medical device called a CuddleCot that allows parents to keep stillborn babies by their side in their hospital room for longer.

The Herald-Journal reports the device has a cooling pad that can be put under the baby's body, giving the parents more time to mourn and say goodbye.

Caitlin and Brandon Robbins memorialized their children, Carter and Lucy, earlier this month with a donation of the CuddleCot to Intermountain Logan Regional Hospital to aid other parents who have been in their situation.

The Robbins learned Oct. 26, 2016, their son, Carter, had passed away one week before his due date. The couple experienced the death of Lucy this past summer following a miscarriage.
