The goal of this project is to design a streamlined, multifunctional labor and delivery device to be used in limited resource settings, such that patients may labor and delivery in the same location, thereby increasing the safety, comfort, and efficiency of the birthing process for mothers, infants, and birthing attendants.
The immersion experience really helped me to understand the intricacies of the clinical environment we were designing for…I strongly believe that we were able to design a more appropriate device for the clinical environment due to our experience observing there.
