Okay, so I know that the human body is so different from a mannequin. Today was my first time checking dilation on my patient. Even though my instructor tried to help me, I still didn't quite know what I was feeling. It was weird and I couldn't feel the cervix or where it even was. I felt lost in the vagina. However, the second time I checked, I felt the head. Although that's a good thing, I would still like to know some tips as to how I can check dilation without feeling lost for the next time.
