Creating Locally Produced Cloth Anatomical Childbirth Models

Cloth Anatomical Childbirth

Anatomical models for teaching health workers about delivery care are expensive.  This resource provides patterns and directions for creating low-cost cloth teaching aids for the placenta, membranes, cord, cord covering, cord stump, uterus, mother's pelvis, and baby's body, arms and legs that can be produced locally as aids in teaching essential obstetric and newborn care practices.  The patterns were developed by midwife P. Annie Clark and have been used in Uganda and other countries to create practical teaching aids.
