Laerdal Global Health
Laerdal Global Health (LGH) was established as the non-profit sister company to Laerdal Medical dedicated to helping save lives of mothers and newborns in low resource settings.
Mama-U represents a postpartum uterus after birth. It supports training in treatment of postpartum hemorrhage and uterine balloon tamponade insertions and other postpartum uterus interventions. The model is ultra-portable and can be used as a tabletop model for task training, or inside MamaNatalie for a complete birth simulation.
The model has all relevant anatomical features like fundus, cervix and perineum along with possibility to extend the uterus (relevant for insertion of postpartum IUD).
|Change uterine angle by applying pressure to the model.|
|Practice “blinded” placements and lift cover of the uterus to evaluate placement.|
Mama-U can be used as a table-top model or used inside the MamaNatalie Birthing Simulator for a complete birth and postpartum simulation training
|Ultra-portable in the compact shoulder bag and easy to use for on-site training|
Mama-U, as a part of Jhpiego’s project “Reinvigorating the PPIUD using a low cost simulation model” in Pakistan, won a prestigious Saving Lives at Birth grant. See more information and video presentation about the project here.
