Obstetric Kit Users

The Maternova kit is designed for trained or skilled midwives and birth attendants. It is specifically focused on preventing death from postpartum hemorrhage. The obstetric kit is not a clean delivery kit-- it is a 'next generation' kit for skilled birth attendants.

Please send details about purchase or pricing of the underpad that measures.

We are distributing & selling the calibrated drape made of disposable plastic ($5 per drape). We are looking into selling the Kelly's pad (rubber, re-usable drape). We do not yet have access to the 'blood mat'.
