Midwifery Suite

This laboratory is mainly used for teaching midwifery skills and contains specialist manikins, anatomical models and equipment required for this specialty.

It is equipped with an adult interactive high fidelity simulated manikin, SimMom. This manikin is an advanced full body interactive birthing simulator that can respond automatically through dedicated software to clinical interventions, creating realistic learning experiences. There is also a newborn baby, Laerdal SimNewB, which is used to deliver high specification simulated training for neonatal care.

The laboratory has two birthing hospital beds with two life-size birthing manikins along with a neonatal resuscitaire.
