Born before their time these babies start their journey with unique challenges and success. Premature babies, born before 37 weeks, often encounter health risks due to complications.
They struggle as their organs, especially the lungs and brain, may not fully develop, making them vulnerable. Most of them are born underweight and prone to hypothermia where they face serious health risks.
To support their journey, hospitals use methods like incubators and skin-to-skin contact. Inspired by the benefits of this contact we have introduced the Kuckoon bag, an eco-friendly product supporting the Kangaroo Mother Care technique.
EKAM's dedicated team has partnered with Nadhi, an eco-friendly clothing company in contributing essential products to enhance Kangaroo Mother Care and provide optimal care for premature infants. The Kuckoon Bag - a specially crafted, ergonomic solution that goes beyond traditional care. A hands free model, provides confidence to handle the fragile preemie baby. Its ergonomic design relieves the strain on the shoulders and back and enables extended duration for the KMC method.
It is aligned with 8 SDGs, promotes healthcare and empowers low-income women through sustainable, eco-friendly design, ensuring safety and comfort in skin-to-skin contact with its hands-free model for extended Kangaroo Mother Care.
The collaborative effort between EKAM and Nadhi, with a combined 22 years of expertise, marks a milestone in maternal and child well-being, emphasising environmental responsibility and economic empowerment.
In the wake of World Prematurity Day, the unveiling of the Kuckoon product range was led by Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, Former Chief Scientist of the World Health Organization and Chairperson of the MS Swaminathan Research Foundation.
EKAM Foundation would like you to join us in taking their care to the next level with the Kuckoon Bag. Your support can make a world of difference.
