Infant Burial Gown Program

Free infant burial garment

Kennedy's Angel Gowns provides an infant burial gown to any parent faced with pregnancy and infant loss. One of our local hospitals in Virginia has over 20 infants alone that are lost every month to a miscarriage or stillbirth. When this tragedy hits, there is not an option to find a burial gown in a local store that would fit appropriately. Our infant burial gowns are handmade from donated wedding gowns. They are available in micro wraps, preemie, and small to large.

 

We select an "angel gown" best suited based on weight, gender, and availability. We deliver at no charge and offer comfort along with the garment for any bereaved family. The last moments last a lifetime and our simple gift is available to make it beautiful as it should be. Family, friend, or parent can complete the burial gown request online.

Who We Help

Kennedy’s Angel Gowns serves bereaved families faced with pregnancy and infant loss throughout Virginia and the United States. Infant burial garments are delivered in person or shipped expedited at no charge upon request.

The Butterfly Room

& Supporting Hospitals

Kennedy's Angel Gowns has been raising funds to donate a CuddleCot™ or Caring Cradle to local hospitals. These are a cooling system that preserves stillborn babies to allow their parents to spend more time with them and grieve. You can help us equip more hospitals by making any donation to the Cooling Units Campaign to give bereaved parents this precious, extra time with their infant.

A CuddleCot™ was also donated for the first-ever Butterfly Room. The dedicated bereavement room for patients at Norfolk General Hospital is funded through Kennedy's Angel Gowns by donors like you. You can help us raise funds or donate to the Butterfly Room Campaign. Imagine if every hospital in this country had a dedicated Butterfly Room for parents grieving from pregnancy and infant loss!

The NBC television series New Amsterdam featured a Cuddle Cot™ in an episode on November 12, 2019 and it has brought awareness of pregnancy and infant loss.
