This demonstration presents a development of a Mixed Reality (MR) and Virtual Reality (VR) research project for midwifery student learning, and a novel approach for showing extended reality content in an educational setting. The Road to Birth (RTB) visualises the changes that occur in the female body during pregnancy, and the five days immediately after birth (postpartum) in a detailed 3D setting. In the Base Anatomy studio, users can observe the base anatomical layers of an adult female. In Pregnancy Timeline, they can scroll through the weeks of gestation to see the development of the baby and the anatomical changes of the mother throughout the pregnancy and postpartum. Finally, users can learn about the different possible birthing positions that may present in Birth Considerations. During the demo, users can experience the system in either MR or VR.
