Forceps & Breech Birth Training Fetal Model
This project involved the design and manufacturing of two unique full-term fetuses that were used in an existing pelvic model. One of the silicone fetuses was developed to train doctors and nurses in the safe and appropriate use of forceps. The other model was created to provide training for the complications associated with breech birth and shoulder dystocia. This project was created with the support, guidance, and medical expertise of Dr. Richard Pittini and Dr. Rose Kung of Woman's College Hospital. These models are currently being used in the University of Toronto's Surgical Skills Program at Mount Sinai Hospital, as well as several other national and international hospitals.
