Neonatal period is the most vulnerable time for a child’s survival. Maternova recognizes that now is the best time to work on improving the survival rate and health of mothers and children in the developing nations, and providing the mother and child care solutions for the ones most in need. We focus quite a bit on the newborn period because of the vulnerability of newborns and the range of simple interventions that can improve the odds of life and well-being of the child during this critical period (0 to 28 days).
In developing countries, safe childbirth and neonatal care still present a big challenge. When there is a lack of essential medical equipment, both the mothers and the health care workers could benefit from inexpensive but effective curative and preventative solutions that have the potential to save lives.
Maternova’s goal is to collect, categorize and highlight life-saving innovations for mother and child health care. Some of our innovations are simple, some are more creative, but they are all practical and most importantly, cost-effective.
Our Neonatal solutions include Incublanket by Warmilu - the revolutionary infant warming innovation, ThermoSpot - the non-invasive infant hypothermia indicator, bubble CPAP and CHARM monitor that detects pneumonia in children, and other solutions. Although professional care during childbirth is crucial, there are other health care needs to consider: such as early identification of dangerous conditions. Our solutions include the Pratt Pouch - a simple solution that has the potential to stop a large percentage of new HIV infections each year. Pratt pouch can be given to HIV-exposed infants at home, by the mother.
