On Behalf Of Zachary (OBOZ) Donation/Gift Program for Families and Hospitals

Benefiting

Whether you are purchasing our products for personal use or you want to donate them to a hospital, you will not only receive 50% discount on your order, but in addition, part of the proceeds will be donated to The Tiny Miracles Foundation - all on behalf of Zachary.
See more details below.

Nurtured by Design's On Behalf of Zachary (OBOZ) program was inspired by the promise Yamile made to her son, Zachary, that his pain and struggle to survive the NICU were not going to be in vain. She promised him to help babies on his behalf. See the video from the TODAY SHOW here

Every baby is born with the need to be nurtured. Nurtured by Design makes it possible for parents to be effectively involved with the care of their baby and help them improve developmental outcomes for a lifetime.

Our products are used globally and they provide an ergonomic environment that helps calm the baby by effectively combining engineering and the involvement of the parents. We do it without the need for extra medication (and accompanying side effects), expensive equipment, or invasive procedures.

The Zakys simulate the touch, scent, and weight, shape of the hands of the parents. They help the baby while s/he is not being held.

The Kangaroo Zak provides safety, comfort, and prolonged hands-free kangaroo care sessions.

By using both products, families are able to help every baby from birth, around the clock, and at any developmental stage, size or medical condition, in any unit in the hospital.

and how she uses them.

Donna, an Experienced Nurse from Iowa explains how she uses the Zaky and how it helps parents.

Can I buy it for a mom with a high-risk pregnancy or for a baby that may come with medical complications?

Yes. Whether the mom or the baby are hospitalized or there is an indication that the baby may come early or with complications, this program is for you.

What if the hospital has not mentioned these products? Can we still use them?

Yes, all hospitals approve (and most recommend) that parents bring their own Zakys and Kangaroo Zaks. If this is not the case, please request the person responsible for developmental care to contact us

Unfortunately, some hospitals allocate low/no budget for developmental care and they request parents to bring our products to be used with their baby.
