Inexpensive Gelatine Models for Early Pregnancy Teaching

Impress Women’s Health (July 2017)
MaterialsGelatin, balloons, grapes
Estimated CostNot provided


This model is created with 2 different density gelatins. The gelatin uterus can be filled with water balloons of various sizes to simulate the gestational sac and grapes can be used as the fetus. I suspect if the surrounding gelatin mold were made large enough a canal could be carved out to allow for transvaginal assessment as well.
