MamaNatalie is a birthing simulator designed for training both normal delivery and postpartum complications, including severe bleeding, uterine atony, and retained placenta.
With realistic bleeding, MamaNatalie is a useful complement in postpartum hemorrhage trainings programs, such as Helping Mothers Survive Bleeding After Birth Complete. MamaNatalie gives birth to NeoNatalie, a highly realistic newborn simulator.
MamaNatalie is particularly realistic for training control of postpartum hemorrhage - the number one cause of maternal death during childbirth - and communication with the mother. MamaNatalie's features include:
Positioning and delivery of the baby
Delivery of the placenta (complete and incomplete)
Fetal heart sounds
Urine bladder catheterization
Uterine massage (atonic and contracted uterus)
MamaNatalie comes with NeoNatalie newborn simulator. NeoNatalie has a realistic size and appearance. NeoNatalie was developed to meet the key requirements for teaching the initial steps of resuscitation in the first ten minutes of a newborn's life.
In a randomized controlled trial of birth simulation for medical students, MamaNatalie was found to be as effective for training medical students on how to perform a vaginal delivery as a high-end simulator.
