Thanks for blogging about our virtual birthing unit project. As you say, we're still developing it but hope to go live in about 10 days. We hope that it will give midwifery students the opportunity to 'practice' their communication and decision-making skills in situations when women are in labour - you cant 'practice' very easily on real, live women :)

When I started this project I didn;t realise that women role-played pregnancy and birth. What I'd like to do is the merge the two aspects of SL and bring the role playing women together with the students so the students get the chance to interact with 'real' women in SL, not just each other. Would love to hear from your readers if they have any other ideas about how SL could be used for midwifery education.

I have to agree. I'm unsure of my standings as far as giving birth in real life, but I found my SL pregnancy to be very rewarding. At times, I even questioned whether I'd want to go through the trials of pregnancy while doing so. All in all though, I loved it.

Always interesting what educators use Second Life to teach. I hope she sees success with her classes.
