Simulation With A Social Impact

Your training can help save the lives of mothers and newborns around the world​​

Every one of us is tied to a community around the world dedicated to promoting health, well-being, and saving lives. Thanks to everyone who is part of the 'Buy one, Gift One' Program, we can share with nurses, caregivers, and midwives who pursue the same values we do, but who lack the same resources.


Every year, 40 million women give birth without a skilled birth attendant.​

287K​ mothers die due to pregnancy and birth complications
2.3M​ newborns die during the first month
1.9M​ babies are stillborn​

Together, we have an opportunity to ensure that women and newborns worldwide receive high-quality care by equipping health professionals with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed.

7000 birthing simulators donated – How it works






Training programs


Skilled birth attendants

Buy One, Gift one, or BOGO, is a joint program by Laerdal Global Health and Laerdal Medical that facilitates distribution of birthing simulators in places where they're needed most. That’s how Buy One, Gift One can help.

For every MamaAnne, SimMomMamaBirthie or MamaNatalie purchased by Laerdal Medical customers for use in a high-income country, a MamaBirthie or MamaNatalie is donated to a selected partnership program in a community in need.

These simulators are being distributed to partners, together with educational materials, to enable healthcare providers with training opportunities like the Helping Mothers Survive Program and SimBegin, to manage the leading causes of maternal and neonatal mortality. They’re used by healthcare providers to gain hands-on experience to manage obstetric emergencies, practice delivery techniques, and improve their competence and confidence. Laerdal Medical customers provide the donations and Laerdal Global Health strategically allocates the simulators to partner programs with high-impact potential.
