Want to know how we help? 

After years in the field, an international NGO supporting clinics in Tanzania, Uganda, Nigeria, and Haiti, had found that obstetric hemorrhage was one of the biggest preventable causes of maternal mortality. They were then looking to purchase the Non-Pneumatic Anti Shock Garment (NASG), a low-cost, evidence-based, first-aid device used to stabilize women experiencing obstetric hemorrhage. 

After a thorough search, they found Maternova offered the best path to acquiring the NASG. During discussions with our team, Maternova offered tailored advice on how to best pair the NASG with other low-cost, life-saving devices designed to prevent obstetric hemorrhage, like the CRADLE Vitals Monitor and the Obstetric Ballon. Based on the recommendations made by Maternova’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Luna Mehrain, they ordered the three products and incorporated them into their health programs and training sessions. To ease the introduction of the products into the work of their medical teams in Tanzania, Uganda, and Nigeria (50 professionals in total), Dr. Luna Mehrain offered a custom, live training on best practices for the three products.

This story is one of many where Maternova demonstrated a high level of medical expertise and efficiency to support its NGO clients. Paying close attention to medical innovations in this field, Maternova can offer tailored medical advice and products to your teams, supporting you in promoting maternal and neonatal health around the globe.
