Full Birth Obstetric Trainer
The MODEL-med Sophie and Her Mum Full Birth Obstetric Trainer is designed for the simulation of cephallic birth, breech birth, and shoulder dystocia. It is made from a highly realistic flesh-like material that creates an extremely realistic tactile experience when simulating birth.
As with all MODEL-med products, the models require generous lubrication with water-based lubricants. Your distributor can supply or recommend such a lubricant.
You will note that the vagina is a realistic size but stretches to accommodate the fetus, with a very lifelike stretching of the perineum.
Training From All Angles
When using The MODEL-med Sophie and Her Mum Full Birth Obstetric Trainer you will usually have two practitioners operating the model. One will be pushing the fetus through Sophie's Mum's birth canal, while the other will be delivering Sophie.
The Sophie fetus has a full metal skeleton that provides durability and allows her to move realistically when practicing maneuvers such as the nucal arm.
Add-ons for Optimization
The MODEL-med Sophie and Her Mum Full Birth Obstetric Trainer also has add-ons available that increase her usefulness.
A placenta and post partum uterus can be purchased separately that allow manual removal of the placenta to be simulated. In addition a post-partum hemmorage uterus is available separately that allows the user to simulate bleeding after birth. This is used with MODEL-med's own blood, which is non-toxic, and washes out of cloth.
