Human gestation is fascinating, but can be difficult to describe to patients and expectant moms. With this collection of detailed anatomical models, it becomes much simpler to educate patients and students about the stages of pregnancy and fetal growth, beginning with 1st month and progressing through several stages. Some of them even display breach positioning and other common features of pregnancy.
Human Pregnancy Anatomy Models
Pregnancy, the fertilization and development of human offspring, is a fascinating process, including three phases, also called trimesters. Within the first trimester, the embryo/fetus is in its earliest stages of development, and carries the highest risk of miscarriage. The second trimester is when it becomes easiest to monitor the fetus’ growth, and the third is the final development and growth of the fetus. The stages are incredible to observe, and cannot be viewed externally, so the addition of anatomical models to the study of this incredible process is very beneficial to students.
One of our favorite model sets is the Pregnancy Stages – 5 Models set from 3B Scientific. This series of 5 models displays the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th month in breach position, and 7th month. Made of high quality plastic, this collection is small enough to be portable but detailed enough to be used for many purposes. Expectant mothers especially love being able to see the position and estimated size of their little one.
We also recommend that those teaching about human pregnancy purchase an anatomical chart to assist in the study. One of our most popular charts for this purpose is the Pregnancy and Birth Anatomy Chart, featuring a variety of information.
