There are few areas of medicine where simulation training is more necessary and potentially beneficial than obstetrics. Practising for obstetric emergencies with simulation training has demonstrated the ability to significantly decrease maternal and foetal/infant morbidity and mortality, and is now recommended and recognized by major regulatory bodies. In general, this training can be carried out on the actual delivery unit and with simulators that are relatively inexpensive. This chapter provides a discussion of the critical components of obstetric simulation, as well as a review of currently available obstetric simulators and instructions on how to conduct training.
