"I received your package today. Oh my, it made me cry how beautiful the layettes are. How can I thank you for this great work and including us as part of your family of hospitals. God bless the makers of these layettes for their gift of love and compassion." —Rosemary

"I appreciate having beautiful coordinated layettes and keepsakes in all the appropriate sizes to offer to each patient and her family as these sets do not exist to be purchased on short notice." —L & D Nurse

"I can't believe that someone made this with such thought, care and perfect workmanship. It has taken a lot of worry off me to see my baby boy cared for so respectfully." —Anonymous Parent

"I am on the front line providing care to patients so I witness the impact of this ministry on families. The layettes and keepsakes are given to families from every walk of life who find themselves thrust unexpectedly into one of life’s most distressing situations—the death of their baby during pregnancy or shortly after birth. They rarely have any warning or time to prepare. The layettes serve a vital need and the keepsakes are treasured by the families for a lifetime."
—Bonnie Tincher, RNC, CNS, MSN (Now a board member of Angel Layettes)

"I care for families who have experienced the loss of an infant through miscarriage, stillbirth or neonatal death and can provide an appropriately sized, beautifully crafted layette created by caring volunteers. They are so touched and relieved. Infant clothing in these small sizes is not readily available in the retail market. The layettes provide the family with treasured keepsakes that acknowledges and honors the infant’s life." —Grateful Labor & Delivery Nurse

"Angel Layettes add a beautiful lasting memory to a life event that is permeated with profound grief." —Susan S., R.N.

"Our box arrived! It felt like Christmas! I opened each one. Absolutely beautiful! I am so happy to have them. I like how they velcro in the front. It will make handling these little ones easier. I especially like the lavender sleeves as a keepsake 'box.' I will prepare them to hand out with all of the information the parents will need. I know they will be so appreciated. I will keep you up to date on their use and outcomes. Your ladies do beautiful work. Please share with them our appreciation."

LayetteOur Services

Angel Layettes provides comfort, love and dignity in the midst of one of life's greatest tragedies, the loss of a child prior to birth and those who die shortly after birth.

Due to logistics, budgets and other reasons, hospitals are not equipped to meet the needs of families who have experienced a perinatal loss. This void creates additional grief, both for the families effected by the loss, and the caregivers in the hospital who seek to help them.

Angel Layettes provides much needed items that are:

  • Especially suited for the small and fragile bodies
  • Beautifully appropriate to bring honor and dignity to the life of a precious child
  • Personalized to allow the family to chose from the design that they feel is most appropriate

The Angel Layette Set

Angel Layettes provides a layette set that is comprised of a layette (or shroud for the smallest of babies), a matching blanket and a keepsake heart. Caps are provided to the hospitals as well, for use when the families desire one.

Betty GlassAngel Layettes works very closely with hospital staff to design and produce layettes that are specific to the needs of these little ones. Due to the fragile nature of the babies' skin and small bodies, great attention is given to the design, providing ease of dressing for the hospital staff.

Angel Layettes are made from the highest-quality materials, and are hand sewn by loving volunteers to exacting standards.

The process of making a layette set begins with the careful matching of fabrics, trim and laces. Attention is then turned toward the making of the keepsake heart, which will share the same fabric and design as the layette and blanket. The keepsake heart helps to preserve the memory of the child, as well as providing on-going comfort to the grieving family.

All supplies for our layettes, blankets, and keepsakes are furnished by Angel Layettes to our volunteers. This practice ensures that the quality of the layette meets our high standards and allows people the opportunity to volunteer regardless of their financial situation.

HospitalIt is the desire of Angel Layettes to service as many hospitals as possible. If there is a hospital in your area that currently is not serviced by us, please let them know about what we do. There are no charges for the layette sets, and we provide easy on-line access for re-orders and special needs. Please contact us or call 903-534-5212 for more information.
