MamaBirthie – Vaccum Assisted Delivery


This is an instructional video showing
how to use MamaBirthie to perform a vacuum assisted delivery simulation. For this simulation you will need MamaBirthie with abdomen skin, BabyBirthie and the
placenta. In addition you will need protective gloves, a syringe, catheter,
towels and a cap for BabyBirthie. You will also need your own suction device MamaBirthie can be used on a tabletop to
demonstrate skills but it’s most effective when worn by a facilitator for
simulation. Hold MamaBirthie on your front and wrap the belt around your back. connect the clasp and tighten the belt. To place BabyBirthie in head
presentation lie the baby with the head in the pelvis and the buttocks at the
fundus. During the simulation the facilitator manipulates BabyBirthie with
her hands. When the shoulders reach the pelvic Inlet, control the movement to
demonstrate BabyBirthie’s head is not coming out despite the mother’s effort
to push. The learner should now prepare for delivery. Wash hands and put on
gloves. Explain to the mother what is happening
and what you’re going to do. Perform a vaginal examination and confirm that the criteria for vacuum-assisted delivery are fulfilled. The baby is not coming out
despite the mother’s efforts. Catheterize the mother and empty the bladder. Ensure your suction device is working properly. Apply the vacuum cup three centimeters
from the posterior fontanelle and check that no tissue has been caught by the suction device. Wait for the contraction and applie downward and outward
traction to deliver the head. Apply traction in a line perpendicular to the plane of the cup rim. This can be repeated with contractions two to three
times as needed. When the head is delivered release the vacuum. Take off the suction device then deliver the rest of the body. Place BabyBirthie on the MamaBirthie abdomen and dry before clamping the cord. Provide routine care for the
mother and baby during the third stage of labor. Explain to the mother that the chignon created on the baby’s head is normal and
will subside in a few days. Place the cap back onto BabyBirthie. Encourage breastfeeding in the first hour after delivery and continue to check on the
mother and newborn.
