I am working on a postpartum hemorrhage scenario and I do not have a Noel or a fundal add on for Sim Man. Any suggestions on how to create a postpartum fundus?

We use nerf or foam balls. You can find some with different consistensies.

For a boggy uterus I have seen a half-filled water balloon used. It gives about the right "consistency" and doesn't pop if pushed too hard.
