We’re very happy to report the the MCHC recently took delivery of a range of (donated!) maternal and childbirth products from Maternova International. Maternova are a web-based innovation portal: one part long-range media company covering innovations focused on saving lives in childbirth, one part marketplace for lifesaving ideas and tools.
Some of the items they provided include thermospot devices for detecting hypothermia in newborns, infant transport blankets, MUAC bracelets for measuring newborn growth and development, solar headlamps (for night-time deliveries!) and postpartum haemorrhage devices.
