EMBRACE NEST

The Embrace Nest is an easy-to-use, portable infant warmer that does not need continuous power supply. Designed for hospitals and ambulances, it is used in NICUs and wards, and for transport, when skin-to-skin care (a part of Kangaroo Mother Care / KMC) is not possible.

EMBRACE CARE

The Embrace Care can be used in homes or hospitals. It works without electricity, and is intuitive enough to be used by a healthcare worker or a mother. Doctors prescribe it as a complement to skin-to-skin care (a part of Kangaroo Mother Care / KMC) to extend reliable thermal care for vulnerable babies.

LITTLE LOTUS

Little Lotus baby swaddles, sleeping bags & blankets keep babies at an ideal temperature. For every product sold, a baby will be helped in the developing world.

About Us


About Us


Embrace Innovations is a social enterprise that was founded with a lofty goal: create well-designed baby products and in the process, give 1,000,000 premature and underweight babies in the developing world a better chance at life.

The history of Embrace started in 2008, in a class at Stanford University, where the co-founders were challenged to come up with an incubator that costs less than 1% the cost of a traditional incubator. After extensive research, they developed the Embrace infant warmer and have spent the last 8 years distributing these around the world. Little Lotus, our newest product line, uses similar technology as the Embrace warmers to ensure babies sleep at the perfect temperature. Through our 1:1 model, we hope to help 1 million babies around the world.
