Train for the Specific Needs of Premature Babies

Build Confidence in Handling Pre-Term Births

The 10 minutes after birth are critical for all babies, especially for those born prematurely. With preterm birth complications being one of the leading causes of death among children under five, being prepared for the various scenarios is vital.

Developed in collaboration with the American Academy of Pediatrics, Premature Anne authentically represents this unique challenge for clinical preparation and skill development.

An anatomically correct manikin of a baby born at 25 weeks, Premature Anne helps healthcare professionals to:

  • refine standard practices for various challenges presented in premature newborns
  • integrate the latest technologies into preterm infant training programs
  • master the skills needed to care for preterm infants, improving patient outcomes

Practice various skills within:
