Teaching Models

Empathy Belly®

The Empathy Belly® Pregnancy Simulator lets you know what it feels like to be pregnant. It is a multi-component, weighted "garment" that will — through medically accurate simulation — enable men, women, teenage girls and boys to experience over 20 symptoms and effects of pregnancy. "The Empathy Belly"® has been proven to be a highly effective, unique and amazingly powerful teaching tool in teen pregnancy prevention and child birth education.

The RealCare® Baby!

The RealCare® Baby infant simulator is a lifelike, life-size baby doll with realistic computerized responses, which allows teens to experience some of the demands of infant care. It is designed to require “tending” periodically and at random intervals throughout the day and night. This is signaled by crying. RealCare® Baby is often used by schools and other organizations to help adolescents appreciate the responsibilities involved with parenthood.
