I use Stages of Labor from Injoy. It's useful for doing the overview "Labour and Birth 101" at the beginning of a prenatal class series. It has computer graphics of how the fetus moves through the pelvis that are very helpful. It also shows a standard North American hospital environment to normalize that for people.
There are things that bug me about it, but those become teaching points, too. For instance, the final graphic of the cardinal movements the female torso is suddenly in a reclining position and blue hands come out of nowhere to receive the baby. So we talk about that. :-)
So I show that the first night of class so we're all on the same page about stages of labour, etc. After that I show them as many alternative, non standard-North-American-hospital-environment images as I can. :-)
