  • Q: The mother's Perineum has torn - what should I do?
  • A: Replace by ordering the following component - Birthing Abdomen & Perineum Skin Pt No. 80024. The product comes with 1 year warranty, so if this component has torn under normal use within the first year of purchase please contact us to organise a replacement. To remove and replace this component please refer to the User Guide manual pages 24 & 25.
  • Q: Can I bath the Baby?
  • A: No. Water may get inside the joints and prevent the baby from articulating properly. If you own a Force Monitoring Baby water will damage the strain gauge inside the Baby.
  • Q: The umbilical cord has pulled out of the base of the Placenta what should I do?
  • A: Replace by ordering the following component - Birthing Placenta Pt No. 80023. The product comes with 1 year's warranty, so if this component has failed within the first year of purchase under normal use please contact customer service to organise a replacement. To remove and replace this component please refer to the User Guide pages 24 & 25.
  • Q: It is difficult to use forceps are there any tips to set up the simulator to improve this?
  • A: Follow these steps - 1. Load the Baby in to the pelvis in the position required for teaching. 2. Reattach the Abdomen & Perineal Skin on Mother. 3. The trainer (teacher) needs to gently hold the first blade of the forceps in place from within the pelvis until the second blade has been applied and the forceps have been locked together. See page 18 & 19 in the User Guide.
