  1. Marinda Archer

    The Pregnancy Profile Simulator has been a great addition to our program. The students have a greater understanding and empathy toward a woman who’s pregnant. This, coupled with the RealCare babies, have made many of my students think twice about becoming a parent.

  2. Gloria Seward

    The Pregnancy Profile pregnancy simulator is an effective way to help students understand some basic struggles associated with being pregnant. Thank you for offering such a worthwhile product!

    This would be PERFECT and VERY EDUCATIONAL for high schoolers. Male and female. I believe if the school board had the means of funding this, the class and the babies go along with it, it would and could teach our youngsters/teens to wait on having a baby while in high school. In 2019, my daughter in her senior year, graduated while 3 months pregnant. About 5-7 of her friends from the same school and or grade, also pregnant. I really believe this could be a teaching and learning experience for these high school kids. It just might make them see how waiting on having a baby until out of school is best. I absolutely love this. To whomever thought of this and created it, AWESOME AND WAY TO GO! BEST IDEA!

    I have used the pregnancy profile simulator for 3-4 years now in my Psychology class. It truly looks and feels like a real pregnancy – minus the occasional pangs. That along with the infant simulators have helped my students gain empathy and make realistic choices. It is well worth the purchase!
