Donations of teaching tools are essential in hospitals such as these, where large numbers of student doctors (interns) and doctors in their obligatory “social year” pass through. We have the opportunity to provide some of these future doctors with a better understanding of normal birth. Residents and interns are receptive: within the first day of the pelvis’ arrival, a student doctor piped up that he still didn’t understand how to assess the position of the baby in the pelvis. Later, we noted at least 5 interns crowded around the pelvis and baby doll!
Many thanks to Donna Mitchell and her community for their generous donation!
