Labor and Delivery Equipment

Do You Know Your Labor and Delivery Equipment?

When a woman gives birth in the movies, the doctor stands at her pelvis ready to guide the baby into his arms and there is nary an electronic or piece of equipment in sight. In real life, the labor and delivery room is filled with monitors and machines ready to go at a moment's notice.

Take our quiz and see just how familiar you are with these tools of the delivery trade.

I got 100% and am not a student, but a have done my share of research enough to know that I will do my best to avoid allowing any and all of that equipment to be used on my body or my child.  Why is this quiz even on this site?  What happened to trusting a woman's body to do what it's been doing for thousands of years naturally?  How about a quiz on the risks of using these & other medical interventions,  including over-medication (reactions to pitocin, infection and death from epidurals) and the rise of the unnecessary epidural and scheduled cesarean?

funny, I got 100% and have never given birth... Just a physiology student, so some of the names are familiar. Giving birth sounds like quite the ordeal!
