Blanchfield Army Community Hospital was gifted a Cuddle Cot, earlier this year by a Nashville, Tennessee family in memory of their daughter Frances Marie Wiegand. During her 32-week obstetrics appointment at a Nashville-area hospital, mom, Jane Wiegand learned that her baby had passed away in the womb. After delivering her stillborn daughter, the bassinet cooling unit preserved the baby’s condition giving the family extra time during their hospital stay to treasure, grieve and appreciate their daughter.(U.S. Army photo by Maria Yager)
