The nine months of pregnancy that a mother goes through – and that her loved ones get to witness – can be equal parts exciting and nerve-racking. What takes place inside a woman’s womb during this time can determine the kind of life that her child lives once she gives birth. Any stop, delay, or interruption in the baby’s development can bring with it a plethora of problems.
Our inability to see every single thing that takes place inside of us can create an anxiety that can only be calmed once we have our perfect and healthy baby in our arms. In the meantime, we hope, pray, and enjoy the unexplainable experience.
There are so many things that take place during pregnancy, starting with the fact that a baby is literally forming from scratch. Just thinking about all the things that are fashioned together inside of the mother’s uterus blows my mind. It’s truly remarkable!
A baby’s development in and of itself is incredible, but one baby’s healthy birth was more than that – it was miraculous, leaving the doctor amazed and the father reaching for his camera.
In the womb, the mother and fetus are connected through an umbilical cord which transports nutrients to the baby and gets rid of waste so the baby develops properly and receives all that it needs.
