If you’ve never had a baby before, it might be hard to imagine how it’s all going to go down. Well, wonder no more.

According to io9, the folks who make CPR dummies, Laerdal, have created a new device: theMamaNatalie childbirth simulator. No, it doesn’t cause the most excruciating pain of your life, but it does show exactly how the baby comes out, complete with simulated fetal heartbeat and gushing blood concentrate (yep, for real). Also included: fake baby, fake placenta, fake umbilical cord, and backpack to take it on the go!

Wow.  What do you think of this?  Would this be something you'd want to try out?

Ummm... this is creepy to me!  I can see how it would be informational... but it is not something I'd want to experience!!

We had one in our nursing lab in University...was definetly an eye opener...  So glad I had my first two before I became a nurse, I might have decided to never have children..LOL

I have never had children so I would probably try it out. I think it would be very helpful to know what to expect.
