Designs On— Birth

BirthRight helps mothers in rural areas—those who lack access to an attending physician or emergency-room care—give birth at home. The system is designed to monitor and respond to danger signs.

The BirthRight “tackle box” contains: Home Birth Alert, a log to help the mother and her birth attendants identify, track, and respond to an emergency situation; and the Vaginal Repair Kit, a sealed emergency response kit to manage postpartum hemorrhaging and infection long enough for the mother to seek formal medical treatment.

All the necessary hardware comes neatly stacked and assembled. Bravery and high threshold for pain provided by users.
