MaternaWell Tray

Early detection of postpartum hemorrhage saves lives.

Postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) is the leading direct cause of maternal death worldwide and is responsible for over 3 million DALYs globally every year. However, up to 93% of PPH cases are considered preventable. We are developing a mother-centric, affordable, and easy-to-use blood loss monitoring device (BLMD) to accurately and quickly detect PPH after childbirth that reduces critical time to treatment.

How MaternaWell Tray works

How MaternaWell Tray works

Early warning technology: alerts clinicians when too much blood is lost, signaling prompt treatment

Objective blood loss measurement: does not allow for approximation errors

Mother-centered design:
comfortable for mothers

  • 46,500

    maternal deaths from PPH annually

  • 3 million DALYs

    lost to PPH every year

  • Every 11 minutes

    a mother dies from PPH

  • Up to 93%

    of PPH deaths may be preventable

How BLMD equalizes health outcomes
  • Locally-led. Original concept developed by Dr. Justus Hofmeyr, an OBGYN from Southern Africa specializing in PPH.

  • Fast. Constantly provides real-time measurement of blood loss, resulting in prompt diagnosis and treatment.

  • Accurate. Objectively measures blood loss leaving no room for estimation errors.

  • Mother-centered. Honors the mother’s dignity by providing a comfortable, clean birthing process.

  • Sustainable. Designed to be environmentally-friendly.

  • Affordable.  Made from safe yet, inexpensive material.

  • Globally-relevant. LMICs, especially Africa and South Asia, have the largest burden from PPH, but even well-developed high-income countries do not have PPH under control.
