MamaNatalie Birthing Simulator

Providing realistic and affordable training in maternal and newborn care

MamaNatalie birthing simulator and her new born baby helps you introduce simulation. User friendly realism of the simulators and engaging role plays will make the learning sessions efficient and unforgettable, for learners and facilitators alike.


MamaNatalie is a birthing simulator that makes it easy to simulate very compelling simulations of normal to more complex birthing scenarios. It is strapped onto the operator, who is taking the role of the mother at the same time as manually controlling the following features to set the scenario and respond to the student’s performance:

  • Bleeding
  • Positioning and delivery of the baby
  • Delivery of placenta
  • Fetal heart sounds
  • Cervix landmark
  • Urine bladder cathetherization
  • Uterine massage
  • Uterine compression

Appropriately skilled, birth attendants could save 800 of the 1,000 maternal deaths that occur every day.

MamaNatalie has been developed in response to the IJGO Evidence-for-Action call for ”significantly lower cost, durable, easy-to-disassemble-andsanitize high-fidelity mannequins with culturally appropriate features”.
