On Monday afternoon, surrounded by eight Columbia College nursing students, Victoria gave birth to a baby boy after a scary moment when she called out “something’s wrong, something’s wrong.” When it was over, the students took time to talk about the birth and consider how it went. And Victoria prepared to give birth again in a few minutes. Victoria — technically the Victoria S2200 by Gaumard — is a birth simulator used by Columbia College for the first time Monday in a classroom setting. The simulator doesn’t just give birth in a realistic way — the noise and tension in the room are also similar to a real delivery room but with a chance to stop and talk when students need help.
