Saving Sara aims to help eliminate maternal mortality due to postpartum hemorrhage (PPH), the leading cause of maternal mortality worldwide. Even though PPH is a 100% treatable condition, it causes nearly a 100,000 deaths every year, 99% of which occur in developing nations. If untreated, a woman can die in as little as 2 hours from hemorrhagic shock. 

Saving Sara has developed a biomedical pressure sensor device that enables midwives, nurses, and other medical providers in all parts of the world to save the lives of patients with PPH by providing additional time to receive further treatment.
