A latex fingercot with a small hook on the end for amniotomies. Sterile, disposable.

"In a study of 100 women in established labour we investigated two devices currently used for amniotomy, the Amnihook, a long rigid instrument and the Amnicot, a finger stall with a plastic hook on the end. No overall difference was found in operator ease of use or maternal discomfort. There were significantly fewer babies with long scratches p = 0.02, Odds ratio 0.19 (95% CI 0.05 to 0.68) and the mean scratch length was almost halved in the Amnicot group (p < 0.05, 95% CI for difference between means 0.653 to 6.71). Our findings support the theoretical advantage of a reduction in fetal scalp trauma using a flexible device for amniotomy." Midwifery. 1993 Dec;9(4):220-4, by Harris M, Cooper EV.

5 of 5 Less intimidating and very effective August 18, 2010
Reviewer: Midwife Michelle from Indiana, United States  
I really prefer the amnicot for those occasions when AROM is helpful in labor.  It is less intimidating for the mom and generally easier to use than an amnihook, in my experience.

Give it a try if you haven't yet!
