Welcome to The Zaky’s Zero Separation and Nurturing Experience for Mother-baby, neonatal, and pediatric units

The Zaky® is arguably the best evidence-based system for family-integrated, neuroprotective and
developmental care, and kangaroo care / skin to skin contact for around-the-clock nurturing care.

The beauty of simplicity from our family to your families in your hospital unit.

Dear Clinician:

First and foremost, THANK YOU for the work that you do taking care of moms and newborns (healthy, preemies like mine once was, sick babies) and children in the NICU, PICU, CICU, rehab, oncology, or other pediatric hospital units. You also care for families, teaching them how to care for their babies' safety, comfort, sleep. 

Thank you for taking the time to lean why The Zaky® system is arguably the most effective, safe, natural, nurturing, warm and cost-effective multi-sensory experience for hospitalized babies and their families:

We are engineers, ergonomists, supply chain experts, and former NICU parents, 
and we engineered The Zaky® experience for simplicity and
effectiveness around the clock.  It also streamlines
supply chain (that is why the staff and admin love us too!): 


When The Zaky® is used as recommended by Nurtured by Design:

  • The Zaky® improves patient safety, pain management, breastfeeding rates, and healthcare outcomes; and reduces the risk of infants' falls and injuries.
  • The Zaky® reduces the cost of healthcare 
  • The Zaky® improves the satisfaction of parents, patients, AND staff.

    Every patient is someone's child, and we support nurturing them.  Parents give them love and show them there is a reason to fight. 

    Love and scientific knowledge light our way.
