Instructors may program the "Sim Mom" to talk, respond with various health conditions and deliver a baby. Whitehead said the flexibility of working with a mannequin is an educational asset. "It is a learning process," she said. "You can stop and rewind and redo that process of the scenario, and that is wonderful."
