Summary of "Perinatal palliative care after a stillbirth-Midwives' experiences of using Cubitus baby."

Usually, parents remain at the hospital for two or three days after a stillbirth in Sweden, and the routine until recently has been to place the baby in a refrigerator during the night. A device, the Cubitus Baby, a specially designed cot with cooling blocks, was implemented in all 47 delivery wards during 2013 and 2014.
