SAMSUNG IS HELPING PREEMIE BABIES BY MAKING INCUBATORS FEEL MORE LIKE THE WOMB: HOW A HEARTBEAT CAN CHANGE TOUGH ODDS - BY GABRIEL BELTRONE
Samsung is back to pull at your heartstrings again, this time with a campaign about premature babies.
The campaign, titled "Voices of Life" and created by Leo Burnett Chicago, features an app that lets a mom record her heartbeat and other soothing sounds. A special speaker in her baby's hospital incubator plays back the audio, which Samsung's technology has muffled to better emulate the in-utero environment.
My sister and I were both born premature so this piece touched close to home. I can't even imagine-- now being a mom-- how much this would've meant to my parents when we were born. What a gift!
