FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - The University of Arkansas’ nursing school at the Fayetteville campus is to demonstrate a new mannequin that simulates childbirth.

The demonstration is set for 4 p.m. Thursday and will show how the mannequin integrates the physiology of the mother and baby.

Organizers say use of the mannequin has been validated by medical researchers and the line is the first of its type to be commercially available.

Faculty and students at the nursing school are planning a “baby shower,” for gifts that will make the mannequin’s room look more like a maternity ward. Diapers are also being collected for the United Way’s diaper drive.

The event is at the Epley Center for Health Professions on North Razorback Road.
