This wearable Pregnancy Simulator Suit is designed to give non-pregnant people the experience of carrying the extra weight, increased heat and restricted movement a pregnant mother has endure.
The ideal pregnancy simulator:
Suitable for men or women, experiential learning creates a powerful, memorable experience and fosters empathy toward pregnant women.
The Pregnancy Simulator Empathy Suit adds 6.5 kg (14 lb), the approximate weight of a 7 to 8-month-old foetus and amniotic fluid, in the anatomically appropriate places.
Adjustable elasticated velcro straps on the maternity simulator vest ensure the suit fits many body types and sizes. Tighten the straps to decrease the range of motion and make basic tasks more challenging.
During pregnancy the body temperature increases. By placing the included portable heat pack inside the Pregnancy Empathy Suit, you can simulate the discomfort an increased body temperature brings to the mother.
The weight of the vest can also contribute to increased pressure on the bladder, a discomfort many pregnant women will be familiar with.
