Umbilical Cord Sphere
Umbilical Cord Sphere

For newborns, umbilical cord care is important. However, in developing countries of Africa where health conditions are poor, most pregnant women choose to give birth at home because of backward economy. The umbilical cord is often cut and cleaned simply by the pregnant women themselves. Because there is poor sanitary conditions during the birth, the umbilical cord of the newborn is easily inflamed, which is serious and even harmful to the health of the baby. We design the Umbilical Cord Care Kit. The mainproduct in this kit is a Sphere, which include sanitary articles necessary for umbilical cord care such as gauze.
