User Experiences

“Virtual Mentor is systematic in the way it explained the steps to me. That’s what I like about Virtual Mentor. I like the way it helps you remember things; you don’t have to be confused. Sometimes in an emergency you become a bit anxious and you forget some things. But when Virtual Mentor is explaining steps to you, it gives you confidence that you are doing right.”

“In emergencies that is what you need—you need somebody to talk to you and somebody to listen to you. It’s like you’re talking to someone.” 

 “I like the reassurance that all will be well. That one is very important, because in a real emergency you don’t know the outcome but when you get that reassurance you also make yourself encouraged.”

“Virtual Mentor makes you calm when managing PPH. In case you have no one to ask, or in case the doctor is not near, you are able to manage the mother well because you are not going to make mistakes with the Virtual Mentor guiding you.”

“With the Virtual Mentor, you feel you are not alone. When you need help, you have it. We wish it could be installed in our labor wards.”
