 In 2014, 3,564 babies were stillborn or died shortly after birth. This is 10 babies every single day that are born sleeping or sadly pass away shortly after they are born. These figures only take in to account any babies that are born after 24 weeks of pregnancy as there are no recorded figures below this gestation. In reality this figure is much higher. 

Cherished Gowns UK are a registered charity (1172482),  that provide the families of babies that are stillborn, miscarried or pass away shortly after birth with items of clothing that they are able to be dressed in for their funeral. We provide UK hospitals with 5 different sizes of Cherished Gown packs that include a gown, hat, booties, blanket and a cloth nappy. We also send gown packs directly to parents who are unable to find anything to fit their precious baby on request.

All of the items we provide have been lovingly made by volunteers from all over the country, and all of the gowns we provide are made from generously donated wedding dresses. Cherished Gowns UK was set up in October 2014 and since then we have made over 100,000 gowns from around 20,000 wedding dresses, and we have also had over 1/4 of a million items sent to us by our amazing knit and crochet volunteers. We stock 237 NHS hospitals including Northern Ireland, Scotland & Wales. 

Our service is provided completely free of charge to anyone that is in the sad position of needing it.


Cherished Gowns has always worked in conjunction with SANDS and a variety of Other Support Organisations . We also liaise closely with the NHS and Maternity departments all over the UK to ensure that the Cherished Bereavement Packs properly meet the standards of the Hospitals we donate to.
