Brit Irvine, BSW
Founder and Director
Brit resides in Richmond, Indiana with her husband and their five children. She became interested in the Perinatal Bereavement field after the sudden and unexpected loss of their son, Brantley, at 38 weeks gestation. Brantley was considered a full-term stillbirth. Shortly after his passing, Kyle and Brittany experienced a six-week miscarriage. Her love of research led her to establish the Indiana Cuddle Cot Campaign in hopes that she could provide additional support and resources for families who have also experienced a Pregnancy or Infant related loss. During the day, Brit is the Director of Social Services for a local nursing home.

His passion for the Indiana Cuddle Cot Campaign comes from the fact that he is able to help honor the memory of their son, Brantley, while being able to help other families.
