We have a dedicated Midwifery Practice Suite, with a full range of midwifery models, task trainers along with a newborn, maternal and neonatal birthing simulator.
Our state-of-the-art birthing mannequin is designed to simulate the birthing experience before, during and after delivery.
It gives Midwifery students the opportunity to experience realistic fetal palpation, to understand the process of contractions and to deliver a baby through a lifelike birthing canal which simulates human tissue.
Tutors can programme “Noelle” with a variety of different realistic birthing scenarios, allowing students to update their clinical skills and to review their practice with their peers.
Midwifery practice suite
Student midwives have a dedicated clinical room with a full range of midwifery models e.g. for abdominal palpation and simulated birth.
Students also share a suite of practical simulation rooms with other professional groups in the Faculty of Health Studies. They use these rooms to facilitate workshops, working in small groups and practising different midwifery activities on a rotational basis.
