Helping Families & Hospitals
Infant Burial Gown ProgramFree 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.
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.

Each year we recognize two families that have made an impact on pregnancy and infant loss awareness. Kennedy’s Angel Gowns is thankful for their ongoing support and contributions to our cause.
2019 Angels on Earth
This award recognizes individuals and organizations that have made significant contributions to supporting bereaved families and raising awareness to the silence that often surrounds infertility, miscarriage, early neonatal loss, still birth, and infant loss.
2019 Ambassador Family
This award recipient is selected by our board of directors. Together we raise awareness and funds to support other families that experience infertility or the loss of a child.
Certificate of Life
When a child is lost to miscarriage, stillbirth, or neonatal loss, the parent does not receive a legal birth or death certificate. Kennedy’s Angel Gowns offers parents this Certificate of Life so they are not left empty handed in their loss. If you have lost a child, or know someone who has, this Certificate of Life is a beautiful way to honor the infant who passed away. A certificate helps comfort the parents and brings validation.
