then, in december, the first cuddlecot was donated to avera sacred heart hospital in yankton by the koupel (coe-pull) family, in memory of their son, joseph walter, who was delievered there in september. jenna: now, the siouxland hospital that delivers more babies than anyone else will be getting this same technology. a sioux city couple wants to make sure unitypoint health -st. luke's has a cuddlecot... and a lasting memory of their daughter's impact o othe community. here's more about their story in your health matters. jeremy and lisa beautiful family. two girls and a boy... evelynne, who's not quite a year old. but, there's another member of this family who's just as important, although you can't hear her tiny voice or see her toddling steps. "we were expecting twins last year, and we would to go all eager to see their appointment] they couldn't find elizabeth's evelynne and elelabeth cotter itypoint health - st. luke's last february 23rd at
there are happy memories of celebrating evelynne's birth, but the cotters say it was also like a bad dream as they struggled to make sense of elizabeth's death. jeremy says, "i feel like we had to grieve on someone else's schedule, because we would have to ask our nurses to bring her body to the room so we could spend time with her andnde would have to wait and after awhile, send her back." that's because the natural process of death makes the body change quickly, especially with babies, so when a child is stillborn, their body is taken back and forth from the hospital's morgue for preservation. but, the cuddlecot, a medical tool gaining popularity in the u.s., would've lessened the trauma for the cotter family. labor and delivery nurse, suzie gosch, explains how it works. suzie gosch, r.n., unitypoint health - st. luke's birth center says, "what this does is preserve time. it's actually
lowers the body temperature to a nice cool temperature and just sort of haults the changes that are taking place." lisa cotter says, "we were looking for ways to honor elizabeth and her birthday is coming up. we know it was something we would've benefitted from, so we wanted to help other famlies." the cotters have been raising money to donate a cuddlecot to st. luke's - and the community response has been overwhelming. jeremy knows that's because so many families experience this same heartbreak. maybe, in the future, that can be eased just a little bit. jeremy says, "it was the worst day of my life, but if this cuddlecot can help someone else on their worst day, make their day just that much less worse, then we achieved what we want to do." suzie says, "no parent should have to say 'hello' and 'goodbye' in the same moment, so this just gives them time, and that's priceless."
i mentioned the community outpouring of support for the cotters, and get this: since i interviewed jeremy and lisa, they not only reached their goal of raising $4,000 for the cuddlecot, their gofundme page is now at over 56- hundred dollars. they're going to donate the extra money to the nicu at unitypoint health - st. luke's, because evelynne spent time there after she was born. they hope to make the cuddlecot donation officially on the girls' birthday. still to come... today marks the aniversary of a historic loss to rock and roll. details after the break.
