Our Mission, Vision and Values
Since initial concept design and market research in 2012, NnBU remains an inovation endeavor. In 2014 we pioneered the idea of after birth care for c-section newborn babies and filed our first patents. Then in 2016, the NnBU GmbH was founded in Berlin, Germany with the goal to develop the world first functional prototype.
The foundations and aspirations of our business remain true to those established by our visionary founders, and their innovation and energy continue to be our inspiration.
Our passion and entrepreneurial culture will ensure that we deliver for any c-section born baby the possibility to ease and remove any disadvantages related with this form of birth by bridging the gap between the natural birth method and the c-section.
Developing and marketing a reliable and safety medical equipment to “kick-start” and support initial breathing as well as many other hormonally controlled processes directly after every c-section delivery.
While C-sections used to be associated solely with emergency situations, many women now elect to have this surgery either due to the advice of their doctors or simply by choice. In recent years, this practice of elective C-section has increased – in fact, across a number of Western countries the rate of C-section births has risen on average from 19.8% in 2000 to 27.9% in 2015.
The market for a device that could help improve the results of C-sections is therefore substantial.
C-sections pose a risk to babies due to the fact that the processes of a natural birth are not recreated. With a cesarean birth there is a risk that the baby is not ideal and above all immediately switched to life outside the uterus, since various adaptation processes are not properly triggered. Furthermore, it is possible that diseases are promoted by the lack of intestinal stimulation. The risk of developing babies with late-onset obesity is greatly increased.
Petra Sacher, gynaecologist and medical advisor to NnBU, said, “As I am confronted daily with the consequences of C-Sections on babies, the path of the NnBU device is just right. Such direct treatment should, in my opinion and that of my colleagues, become an urgent global standard in Caesarean delivery.”
NnBU will become the standard treatment after c-section. Inspired by nature.
