For Use with Medical and Nursing Students

Medical coupleUsed worldwide, The Empathy Belly has proven itself to be an extremely beneficial teaching tool resource for medical students, obstetrical physicians and allied professionals in the fields of Maternity Health Care and Education. By wearing The Empathy Belly they significantly increase their understanding and sensitivity about the pregnant condition. Consequently they are better trained, more effective, and more likely to establish genuine rapport with the pregnant women in their care. For obvious reasons, this is especially true for service providers who are male, or women who have never experienced a full-term pregnancy.

"An obstetrician and father of two children, I have personally had the benefit and experience of wearing The Empathy Belly. I found the symptoms (it) created to be quite significantly similar to the discomforts experienced by patients in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy… It is my professional opinion The Empathy Belly would be an extremely beneficial educational tool for expectant fathers, adolescents in sex education programs, medical and nursing students, and the medical practices of obstetricians and family practitioners."
