MamaNatalie Birthing Simulator

MamaNatalie is a birthing simulator designed for training both normal delivery and postpartum complications, including severe bleeding, uterine atony, and retained placenta.

With realistic bleeding, MamaNatalie is a useful complement in postpartum hemorrhage trainings programs, such as Helping Mothers Survive Bleeding After Birth Complete. MamaNatalie gives birth to NeoNatalie, a highly realistic newborn simulator.


MamaNatalie is particularly realistic for training control of postpartum hemorrhage - the number one cause of maternal death during childbirth - and communication with the mother. MamaNatalie's features include:

  • Realistic bleeding
  • Positioning and delivery of the baby
  • Delivery of the placenta (complete and incomplete)
  • Fetal heart sounds
  • Cervix landmark
  • Urine bladder catheterization
  • Uterine massage (atonic and contracted uterus)
  • Bimanual compression

MamaNatalie comes with NeoNatalie newborn simulator. NeoNatalie has a realistic size and appearance. NeoNatalie was developed to meet the key requirements for teaching the initial steps of resuscitation in the first ten minutes of a newborn's life.

In a randomized controlled trial of birth simulation for medical students, MamaNatalie was found to be as effective for training medical students on how to perform a vaginal delivery as a high-end simulator.

Additionally, a pre and post study in Tanzania showed that MamaNatalie was effective in enabling multi-professional, scenario-based training, which was associated with a significant 47% reduction in whole blood transfusion rates. These results suggested that training that included all levels of maternity staff, repeated sessions with realistic scenarios, and debriefing may have contributed to reduced blood transfusion rates in this high-risk maternity setting.
