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?

My initial response was EWWWWWWWWWWWWW! Once I got passed how graphic and accurate it is I found myself thinking it would be AWESOME to help better prepare young people for exactly how a baby is born. Also, it would be great for Labour and Delivery classes.
