I found this really great tool while I was looking at some BC websites for my paper. I went through the Virtual Labor simulation a few times and thought it was pretty neat!

lol that was neat and I'd totally take what it gave me as my labor! But if it takes an hour to get this kid out, I'll die lol! My longest time pushing was 20 minutes and it was only that long because he was crooked, once my OB manually turned him (from inside, OUCH) he popped right out! Jay was out in 6 pushes... this one better come as fast lol!

Mine said some discomfort, then steady contractions, baby boy born in a few pushes. That would be AWESOME!

I didn't agree with mine when I did it a few months ago. It said I would have like a 10 hour labor. My first was less then 3, so I hope not!!

interesting, it REALLY wanted me to do labor dancing. It sounds fun, maybe I can try that next time. And it got a girl for me too!

Well the first time I did it, it got the part about moaning through contractions in the shower when all of a sudden my water breaks, I head to the birth center (I went to the hospital), and the baby was born minutes later.

yeah there are virtual simulation techniques that act like a real thing.As you said above that there is virtual labor simulation in which one will feel like that she is actual pregnant .Same way there is a virtual baby simulation that behaves like a real baby.Real baby is good for those who don't know how to care infant...
