If you live in Wichita, know how to hand sew, and would like to volunteer for Bridget's Cradles, we would love to have you on our volunteer team!
Our cradles are designed to hold precious tiny stillborn babies who are born into Heaven during the second trimester of pregnancy. We donate our cradles to 600+ hospitals in all 50 states.
We are in need of sewers who can help us with the "finishing touches" of our cradles (e.g., lace/trim, charms). Cradles are sent to us from all over the country. We complete the finishing touches to them as well as add our tag and charm, then we ship them to hospitals nationwide.
We are looking for local sewing volunteers to attend our volunteer work nights at our new headquarters location, or sew cradles from the comfort and convenience of your own home (and exchange on a monthly basis).

About BRIDGETS CRADLES FOUNDATION
PO BOX 316, KECHI, KS 67067, US
The mission of Bridget's Cradles is to provide knitted/crocheted cradles to hospitals to offer to bereaved families who have lost a baby in the second trimester of pregnancy. Bridget’s Cradles also offers support to families during the bereavement process by offering resources and support on its website. Bridget’s Cradles raises awareness about pregnancy loss to the general public.
Bridget’s Cradles Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit organization based in Wichita, Kansas. Bridget’s Cradles provides knitted and crocheted cradles to labor and delivery units at hospitals to offer to bereaved families who have lost babies in the second trimester of pregnancy. We also provide special knitted squares and keepsakes for families who have experienced loss in the first or third trimester of pregnancy. In addition, we offer support to families during the bereavement and grieving process and raise awareness about pregnancy loss to the general public via our website and social media outlets.
Bridget’s Cradles began after the birth of my daughter, Bridget Faith Opliger, who was stillborn on October 22, 2014 at Wesley Medical Center in Wichita, Kansas. My mother, Teresa Golik, had knit a special cradle for Bridget. It was such a blessing to have something to hold Bridget, who was only 13 ounces, and be able to love and bond with her during the time we had with her. Since then, we have been committed to helping other families suffering the loss of their baby by donating cradles to hospitals and sharing resources to support and encourage them during their grieving and healing journey.
