Sophie and Her Mum by MODEL-med
We bring two obstetrical simulators to each workshop. We use Sophie and Her Mum simulators by MODEL-med of Australia. These, like all other obstetrical simulators, are designed for a dorsal lithotomy position. We at Breech Without Borders did some creative engineering to turn the simulators upside-down or, rather, right-side-up!
These photos of Ivory and Ebony show our simulators in a hands & knees or kneeling position.
If you'd like a sewing pattern for the upright stirrups, send a donation of $10 or more to bit.ly/givetoBWB, with a note that you'd like the stirrup pattern. We will email you a downloadable pattern! (Tutorial video below)
