Better Way to Give Birth

It is being tested in Argentina and in rural South Africa to establish whether it could act as a safe and feasible birth aid for use by midwives with minimal training.If it is brought into widespread use, Mr Odón says the gadget could be the first innovation in operative vaginal delivery since the development of forceps centuries ago.

The Odón Device allows a birth attendant to place a plastic ‘bell’ on the baby’s head before sliding a polyethylene sleeve along the birth canal and around the baby’s head.When it is in place, a small amount of air can be pumped into the sleeve to secure it around the baby’s head.

The plastic inserter is then removed and the midwife can use the sleeve to deliver the baby’s head.The sleeve is lubricated to make the delivery easier.As the device reduces the amount of contact between the baby’s head and the birth canal it is thought it could also reduce the incidence of infections acquired during delivery.
