Mama-U Postpartum Uterus Trainer

Mama-U represents a postpartum uterus after birth. It supports training in postpartum IUD and uterine balloon tamponade insertions and other postpartum uterus interventions.

The model is ultra-portable and can be used as a tabletop model for task training, or inside MamaNatalie for a complete birth simulation. Use Mama-U with Laerdal Light task light in order to have better visuals during your training.

Features

  • The model has all relevant anatomical features like fundus, cervix and perineum along with possibility to extend the uterus (relevant for insertion of postpartum IUD).
  • The uterine angle can be changed by applying pressure to the model.
  • It is possible to practice “blinded” placements and lift cover of the uterus to evaluate placement.
  • Together with Sister-U, Mama-U was designed to complement family planning trainings and act as counselling aids for healthcare workers.

 

Winner of Saving Lives at Birth Grant

Mama-U, as a part of Jhpiego’s project “Reinvigorating the PPIUD using a low cost simulation model” in Pakistan, won a prestigious Saving Lives at Birth grant. Study results showed increased confidence of healthcare workers in providing PPIUCD, high user-friendliness and acceptability with the use of Mama-U, and increased adoption rate of PPIUCD by women who were counseled with Mama-U.
