Meet Victoria, the Robot Who Gives Birth

Nursing students at the Massachusetts General Hospital Institute for Health Professions use a realistic birth simulator named Victoria to practice guiding mother and child through the birth process. Just like human mothers, Victoria’s deliveries don’t always go as planned, helping to prepare nurses for complications they may encounter during a live birth. Simulators play a key role in providing Mass General nurses, clinicians and researchers with life-like scenarios they can use to develop new skills and investigate new medical techniques.
