Bloody childbirth simulator nets big design prize

In some glorious day in the future, babies will be born via artificial uterus. The technology exists in science fiction so it’s bound to become science fact. But until then, we’re stuck with the miracle of life au naturel.

Our troglodyte ancestors had zero training for this messy rite of passage, but somehow managed it. Today there are countless books, courses, and professionals to help prepare, yet few aids are as realistic as a childbirth simulator from Laerdal Global Health that consists of a fake uterus, baby, umbilical cord, placenta, and blood.

The MamaNatalie Birthing Simulator recently picked up a prestigious INDEX: Award for design in the Body Category for helping reduce child and maternal mortality.

Known for its realistic training mannequins, the Norwegian company developed its Natalie Collection as a low-cost teaching aid for instructors and midwives.
