“Every year six million babies worldwide need help to take their first breath as they are born. Many will die or be left disabled due to a lack of the right equipment.

The BabySaver allows specialist support to be delivered, at the bedside, in the first moments of life - and at a fraction of the price of traditional newborn resuscitation units.”

Professor Andrew Weeks, Sanyu Director
