Birthing simulators and labour simulators

A birthing simulator is a valuable learning device, both inside the hospital and outside of it.

Our comprehensive range of birthing and labour simulators, as well as realistic manikins, have been designed to help obstetrics and midwifery students safely deliver a baby.

Birthing simulators are also of benefit to emergency responders and first-aiders. They can use a simulator to learn how to keep mother and baby safe until the paramedics or first-responders can take them to hospital.

Frequently Asked Questions

A birthing simulator (often called a labour or childbirth simulator) is a piece of equipment that imitates a woman going through labour and childbirth.

It is used to help medical students, emergency responders and first-aiders learn how to help deliver a baby safely, all while keeping the mother comfortable.

They can vary in complexity. Some of the most basic models consist of two or three components. The more complex, high-fidelity models are the closest thing you will get to assisting a real woman in the various stages of labour.

As well as helping first-aiders and medical students help prepare for standard-birth scenarios, birthing simulators can train them to know what to do in high-risk situations. For example, if there is a placenta abnormality, a forceps or vacuum-assisted delivery is needed, or the mother suffers a potentially fatal haemorrhage. Blood clots, moulages and simulated blood and amniotic fluid can be used for extra authenticity and to immerse the student in the training.

A birthing simulator allows first-aiders and medical students to make critical decisions in quick time. This helps make childbirth smoother and reduces the risk of injury and clinical error.

As we supply a thorough range of birthing simulators and manikins, you may be wondering which is the right choice for your learning requirements.

Generally, the more comprehensive, high-fidelity models like the Lucy range, are best for students of obstetrics and midwifery, where they need to understand complicated medical procedures.

If you need a birthing simulator for first-aid students or those who need to learn about emergency childbirth situations, one of our simpler models is ideal. These are lightweight and pack away easily, meaning that you can take them from one location to another.
