The babies are treated with dignity and respect just as a live baby would be wrapped up when it is born.
The blankets and angel pockets help hospital staff present babies to their family in a respectful way.
The angel pockets allow parents to ‘hold’ their baby without touching their skin, which is very fragile and deteriorates quite quickly.
A dead baby’s body starts to seep fluids shortly after death and the blankets help to ‘soak up’ some of that fluid.
Some parents want to keep the blankets they have bought for their baby so choose to bury or cremate them in the donated blanket.
The blankets may be kept as a keepsake. When there is very little to show for a baby, a pretty angel pocket or blanket will often be treasured forever.
