Embrace Transport Service
We developed a relationship with Embrace in early 2022 when we donated Baby Nests to them.
The team now include our Information sheets in their Transport Packs for each baby they transfer and we donated a Baby Pod (see below) in December 2022.
The Embrace Transport Service team have requested further funds from us to purchase a second Baby Pod as they have a number of ambulances in their fleet. These Pods are used during transport to safely move babies from one hospital to another. They can be secured to any trolley or transport stretcher and so therefore can be used in any road, fixed wing or rotary aircraft. They plan to use the Baby Pod in all three modes of transport.
It is lightweight compared to an incubator, however can only be used for babies between 2-8Kg who can maintain their own temperature as it does not have a heating element.
It is estimated that 1,000 babies per year will be transported using the Baby Pod.
