Doctor Creates Virtual Baby Making Family


Virtual avatars are nothing new, but this story made us sit back a bit and go "Whoa." Dr. Michael Genord of Esprit Women's Health in Royal Oak, MI created Lisa and Dave, a virtual couple that are trying to make a baby. The doctor has set up 'The Interactive You: A Virtual Pregnancy' because many of his patients requested social media options that would help them with the same dilemma. The project, sponsored by Beaumont Hospitals, follows the couple as they go through conception, pregnancy, delivery and post-partum.

Anyone who views the webisodes can interact with Lisa (who is Dr. Genard's wife) and Dave (who is just a stock photo) by making comments, asking questions and even helping to name the baby to come. Hit the link to partake of the virtual trek. And if you are still confused by the whole concept, you are not the only one.
