At Your Cervix

Posted Oct 02 2008 3:16pm

This looks interesting:  After I saw this clip I thought, I would be a gynecological teaching associate (what a fancy term, smile).  Not now of course, I am pregnant, but I can appreciate the benefit of learning about women's bodies with a more personalized hands on approach.  I am so grateful to the moms who patiently let me fumble around to determine how far dilated they are, after the midwife has already checked them, or take their blood pressure even though I sometimes leave the cuff tightened a bit too long.  I wonder if there is a program like this in my area...  Might be something to do on the side while the kids are younger and before I attend a lot of births.  Someone needs to help medical students view patients as women rather than vaginas and breasts and the gynecological teaching associate program sounds like a great way to do that!
