The 27-year-old laid her dead baby in a bed cooled to 45 degrees. Now she wants to help other parents do the same.

When Becki Wilson gave birth to her son Carter-James, she knew they wouldn’t have much time together. Doctors had already told the 27-year-old from Edgeley, England, that her son would not survive long after birth. Becki only had 16 hours with Carter-James before his tiny heart stopped beating.

But Becki was able to spend three more days with her son thanks to a special invention called the “Cuddle Cot.” This baby bed has a cooling system that keeps it at a chilly 45 degrees and keeps the body from decomposing. This gives the parents more time to deal with their loss and say their final farewell when their baby dies.
