...the natural birth after c-section

Our Aim, Timeline, Vision, Media and Imprint

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 patent for the device was granted to NnBU GmbH at 3rd April 2018 by the German Patent and Trade Mark Office.invest

On 19th September 2018 we received confirmation being registratered in the BMWi INVEST database for use of the INVEST eligibility logo under the "INVEST - Venture capital grant" measure
(Registrierung in der INVEST-Datenbank des BMWi und Verwendung des INVEST-Förderfähigkeitslogos im Rahmen der Maßnahme "INVEST - Zuschuss für Wagniskapital").

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 reduce disadvantages related with this form of birth by bridging the gap between the natural birth method and the c-section.

NnBU seeks to collect the necessary funds by teaming up
with venture capital investors.
Milestones are clearly identified.


We will reward investors with an
attractive share of our
business ownership.


Investors in our project will be rewarded
by having the right to
claim 20% of the invested funds back from the
BMWi INVEST. Although attractive exit relief at a later stage
is covered by the BMWi model.


The target for our capital raise is to collect 11mEUR in total. The development phase is staggered into three major phases with a NTC of 5.5mEUR in total (which can be agreed as milestones). The investors participate in a later sale of the company or benefit from the sales margin in case the market entry will be performed by NnBU.

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.

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.

Our Vision

Petra Sacher, gynaecologist and medical advisor to NnBU, said, “As I am confronted on a daily basis 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, the after-care treatment by nature for each c-section delivered baby.

The idea behind is simple: When the baby is born naturally, the chest compresses as it comes through the birth canal which “kick-starts” the breathing and many other hormonally controlled processes .

A recent study by the University of Edinburgh has shown that babies delivered by C-section have a 59% higher risk of obesity under the age of 5, and a 21% increased risk of asthma under the age of 12. These results come after a review of 80 studies and trials that collectively looked at 29 million births.

The specialist medical team at NnBU are working in collaboration with the largest European research organization for applied research, the Fraunhofer Institute and the experts for medical device engineering from DMTpe.

Both companies are based in Germany and will be highly involved in launching the world’s first neonatal birth unit to improve the outcome for babies born via C-section.

NnBU adds major natural birth advantages directly after each c-section delivered newborn - lifelong benefits
