Dr. Michael J. McGrath; CD #1
Research Facts
These devices were used to rupture the membranes around a pregnancy and induce labour; the device was said to offer advantages over rupture of the forewaters that had been done prior to its invention, thus reducing infection and leaving the forewaters intact as some felt it was necessary to enable the cervix to dilate during labour; the donor used to take these devices home and widen the canal to allow their plastic tubing to fit through more easily.
