Handy New Tool Simulates Childbirth -- Including All the Blood!

Want to know what delivering a baby's really like? The realistic new childbirth simulator can help.

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: the MamaNatalie 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!

Joking aside, labor and delivery for your first baby is a scary unknown, and anything that helps you feel prepared is (sorry) bloody awesome.
