MamaBirthie is a realistic multi-scenario birthing simulator and skills trainer. It allows healthcare providers to refine their skills through simulated normal births, vaginal exams, or more complicated scenarios such as breech, shoulder dystocia, vacuum-assisted, and forceps-assisted births. MamaBirthie gives birth to BabyBirthie, a highly realistic newborn simulator.
Practice birthing maneuvers and the delivery of respectful maternity care
Wearable to accommodate birthing in various positions
Assess fetal positioning and vaginal examination with cervical inserts and simulated membranes
Gain tactile feedback during shoulder dystocia from BabyBirthie’s sophisticated neck flexion
Evaluate high risk births; including breech, cord prolapse and partial placenta delivery
Train for any childbirth position
Palpate the baby’s position using anatomical landmarks, and gain additional tactile feedback from palpable fontanels.
The realistic fetal head allows for realistic attachment of vacuum for vaginal assisted delivery and creates a chignon effect.
Management of malpresentations
Utilize the bony structure of BabyBirthie to identify the important landmarks in breech and shoulder presentations.
Delivering respectful care
Practice interaction and active listening with the use of a standardized patient – learning to support the birthing mother as an active participant.
Combine skills assessment in both clinical treatment and communication to build students’ engagement for respectful care.
The right tools – for a job done right
Give learners the best chance of success, letting them practice maneuvers more often.
Use peer-to-peer sessions to create engagement for respectful care, effective communication and risk managing.
Enable Rapid Cycle Deliberate Practice to boost performance – repetition and debriefing are the keys to continuous improvement.
