Obstetric Solution
SimMom and MamaBirthie

Improve the quality of obstetric care

SimMom and MamaBirthie combined provides an impactful simulation toolkit, which can be used at different stages of the Circle of Learning to support a complete learning experience.

One of the most important objectives during labor and delivery is recognizing the potential risks to both the mother and baby. By building a well-trained team, confident in their abilities to manage adverse events whilst communicating with respect to the mother, you ensure better outcomes for both patients.

Skills training at hand when learning procedures by heart

MamaBirthie's easy set-up is ideal for repeated practice. Allow your students to get hands-on experience with standard procedures from day one.

  • Practice vaginal and abdominal examinations
  • Use the cervical inserts for dilatation and effacement assessment, as well as identifying positioning
  • Palpate the baby's position using anatomical landmarks
  • Effectively teach complex births such as vacuum-assisted delivery, breech and shoulder dystocia
  • Gain tactile feedback from BabyBirthie’s palpable fontanelles

Make errors now, to avoid them in the future

No one likes to make mistakes, yet it’s an important part of training. With this obstetric solution, teams can train for decision-making in emergency settings and the ability to work under pressure in a safe environment.

With immediate feedback from either simulator or role-play, instructors can pinpoint areas of improvement, teach precise behaviors for real-life emergency procedures, and instill confidence over time.

Scenarios

SimMom scenarios

Customisable scenarios and real-time instructor controls allow scenarios to be adapted and developed to your unique learning objectives.

Pre-programmed scenarios developed specifically for SimMom in conjunction with PROMPT and the NLN include normal and operative vaginal deliveries of infants, vaginal delivery with shoulder dystocia encounters and breech infants.

For use with the Automatic Delivery Module, HealthCare Simulation in South Carolina and Dr. Carol Simmons, has developed a range of scenarios:

SimMom is an advanced full body birthing simulator with accurate anatomy and functionality to facilitate multi-professional obstetric training of birth management, with both manual and automatic delivery modes. MamaBirthie is a simple, easy to use obstetric training device which can be paired with a standardized patient or used as a tabletop skills trainer.

Together, SimMom and MamaBirthie offer a solution for delivering efficient and effective obstetric simulations which meet learning objectives around care, communication, and skills.
