Bereavement gowns for stillborn babies
UF Health Jacksonville specializes in high-risk pregnancies. Sadly, we experience loss with our families. There are about 80 infant deaths per year. Many times the baby can be photographed in a donated gown and bonnet. The gown and bonnet are given as a remembrance along with the baby's picture to the parents as a momento.
