Bi-directional Membrane Device for Child Delivery

Sergey Shevkoplyas, Lakhinder Kamboj, and Noshir Pesika of Tulane University in the U.S. will develop a microfabricated bidirectional membrane that can be placed in the mother's vagina just prior to delivery to facilitate the baby's passage through the birth canal. This simple-to-use device could significantly improve outcomes during vaginal deliveries in resource limited settings.
