Safe Dreams targets pneumonia, hypothermia and malaria in newborns.
Designed as a multifunctional and low tech solution to ensuring that newborns are protected within any environment. Targeting remote communities where there is little to no medical assistance and aiming to empower mothers to care for their newborns.
The concept is a backpack that contains a clean birthing kit and newborn essentials such as reusable nappies. The backpack can be easily carried by any family member and has the option of carrying the baby on the back. The bag is placed down on the floor anywhere and turns into a bed. The bag is unzipped and has two layers. One is the outside bag material that rolls up at the end. The other is a combination of malaria/insect netting and non-woven material, this layer unzips and the newborn will be placed in the bed. The insect netting layer can then be zipped up and act as a protector layer blocking hazardous participles and air. An active carbon filter is added to the top of the bag to assist in filtering the air effectively. There is a thermal blanket on the inside of the bag also which will warm the newborn.
Safe Dreams aims to ensure a safe environment is given to a newborn whether in the home or out in the agriculture field.
