We believe in a world where all premature babies have access to an incubator.
A baby dies every ten seconds. Without sufficient access to warmth, preterm and underweight newborns are susceptible to hypothermia and its fatal complications. Despite the success of incubators in reducing infant mortality rates over the past 100 years, many communities in developing countries are unable to access these life-saving devices.
This is where Embrace Global steps in. Our incubators, designed specifically for use in villages, are easy to use and do not require constant access to electricity. The core technology of the Embrace Incubator is a phase-change-material, a wax-like substance, which when melted, can maintain a constant temperature of 98 degrees for up to eight hours at a stretch. This wax pouch can be reheated thousands of times. It is then placed into a sleeping bag, where it creates a warm micro-environment for the baby. Our work has been featured in global media including the New York Times, CNN, Newsweek, the Guardian and ABC's 20/20.
Embrace was founded by Jane Chen, who after her time at Harvard and Stanford, decided to dedicate her learnings to helping the most vulnerable in times of crisis. Together with a team of global health and business experts, Jane has been driving continued support for babies around the world.
We have already helped save over 475,000 babies, and with your contribution, we can reach our next goal of 500,000 babies. Join The Nest, our community of monthly givers, to bring life-saving portable incubators to families around the world.
