St. Joseph Hospital staged a public baby delivery Wednesday afternoon.
It happened on a new set of mannequins purchased for the hospital by the St. Joseph Foundation.
"We certainly have not had this kind of technology before, that literally breathes and talks and moves, and this technology is very cutting-edge," said Barry Stumbo, President and C.E.O. of the St. Joseph London Foundation.
The mannequin allows hospital staff to deliver a baby via a cesarean section or standard delivery. A tablet computer allows staff to give the "patient" medication and change other vital signs.
The mannequin is also designed to be used with real medical equipment and will be used for training.
The potential is not, limited, however, to births.
Hospital officials say the mannequin can also be used to simulate cardiac problems.
