Lately I have been involved, on the periphery, of a project to devlope a birthing unit in Second life. my colleague Sarah Stewart has blogged extensively around the development process for this birthing unit. The development of the birthing unit is now complete for normal birth scenarios. It may be that in the future, if more funding is available, that scenarios are developed which challenge students a little more. They may get to deal with more complicated scenarios, perhaps even where referral is necessary. For now it is great that students have chance to explore normal birth in a primary birthing unit. The SLENZ group who have been running this project have produced this excellent video help you see what the possibilities are. It is very exciting and anyone can use it.
