Embrace / birthing chair, incubator


Embrace is a birthing chair and incubator for newborn babies designed by giving more consideration to mothers than the doctors as well as the top priority to babies over the mothers. When a child is delivered without giving many considerations, then he or she will become stressed and shocked upon birth and it is claimed that these experiences may function as the causes to serious social problems such as peer rejection, school violence, and suicide. Embrace strives to solve these problems.
