Typically, Pins for Preemies is a fun-filled, family bowling event that raises money to support mothers and babies at Baptist Health. The COVID-19 pandemic has stopped this year’s event, but we hope it will not stop your support! We still need funds to purchase a Victoria S2200 Birthing Simulator and you can help!

Why do we need a Victoria S2200 Birthing Simulator?
Complications that result in death for a mother or infant, during childbirth or soon after delivery, are tragic. The United States has a high infant mortality rate and the only rising maternal mortality rate, in comparison to other developing countries in the world. Even more alarming, Arkansas has the third-highest infant death rate and the fifth-highest maternal death rate in the nation. Baptist Health is on a mission to improve these statistics in our state but we need your support!
Studies reveal that poor teamwork and ineffective communication are strong contributing factors to adverse events in obstetrics. The National Institutes of Health recommends complex, interactive, and emergency response training through simulation to better prepare healthcare teams for real-life, unanticipated medical events.
The Victoria S2200 (Victoria) is a simulator that delivers exceptional labor and delivery training through a truly immersive experience. From early pregnancy complications, high-risk deliveries, and postpartum emergency scenarios, Victoria simulates a full range of obstetrical events to facilitate teamwork and deepen critical thinking skills in learners. More than a childbirth simulator, Victoria is a complete simulation solution with a comprehensive package of tools and support designed to help improve patient safety in women’s health through education and training.
Baptist Health needs to purchase the Victoria Birthing Simulator to give our caregivers truly immersive and life-like training experiences. Will you help us?
