    Ectopic Pregnancy, Animation

    An ectopic pregnancy is a pregnancy that occurs outside the uterus. Normally, fertilization takes place in the widest section of the fallopian tube. The fertilized egg then travels toward the uterus where it is to be implanted. Ectopic pregnancy happens when the egg gets stuck on its way and starts to develop inside the tube. This is known as tubal pregnancy. Implantation may also occur in the cervix, ovaries and abdominal cavity but tubal pregnancy is by far the most common. With extremely rare exceptions, the fetus cannot survive outside the uterus. Without treatment, the growing tissue may rupture, resulting in destruction of the surrounding maternal structures and a massive…

    Maternity Care (US Navy, 1963)

    [Music] [Narrator:] When you are in your ninth month, it’s only natural to prepare for your eventual trip to the hospital and to wonder a little more about your baby. Many questions come to mind. Will he be a boy or girl? Will he be handsome? What to name him? But perhaps most persistent, will be the question about your baby’s birth. Will he arrive on time? At your first visit to the doctor, you were told your due date, but at best this was only a rough estimate. Actually, only one baby out of every 10 is born on the due date. If he comes any time within two…

    How Pregnancy Is Like Growing an Alien Inside You

    [ ♪ Intro ♪ ] We usually make pregnancy sound like a wonderful, 9 month period of parental bliss. But if you really think about it, pregnancy is kind of bonkers. When you’re pregnant, you’re essentially growing an alien parasite inside of you, having your entire body tweaked and drained to support something that’s half you, and half some other person. Biologically, it’s quite a feat. And yet, it happens all the time. You, me, and every human on Earth, came from this strange quasi-parasitic system. So, today, we’re going in utero. We’ll talk about how embryos develop, how they get their food and get rid of their waste, and…

    How Do You Get Pregnant? | Planned Parenthood Video

    Pregnancy is a pretty amazing process. It all starts with a sperm and an egg. Sperm are tiny microscopic cells that are made in testicles. Sperm cells mix with other fluids to make semen which spurts out of your penis when you ejaculate. Eggs live in ovaries. And the hormones that control your menstrual cycle cause eggs to mature every month. These hormones also make the lining of you uterus thick and spongy to prepare for a possible pregnancy. Every month, one mature egg leaves your ovary. This is called ovulation. That egg travels through your fallopian tube which takes about 12 to 24 hours. If semens get into your…

    Should You Be Using This Kind Of Birth Control?

    IUDs are one of the safest, most effective forms of birth control out there – so why aren’t more people using them? Hey guys, Tara here for Dnews – and it’s always a fun day when I get to talk about something I truly, firmly believe in. Today, that thing is the IUD. IUD stands for intrauterine device, and it’s a birth control method that’s been around since the 60s. It’s currently the most popular form of contraception in China, and many other countries around the world – but for some reason, it hasn’t really caught on here in America. That may soon change, though, as the American Academy of…

    Are Artificial Wombs the Future of Birth?

    In April, scientists unveiled an artificial womb undergoing testing on fetal lambs. With a prediction from one of the researchers that the technology could be ready for human testing in three to five years, artificial wombs suddenly became the most unexpected rage of 2017. But what sort of artificial wombs might realistically be a part of healthcare in the near future? In fiction artificial wombs are often depicted as self-sufficient systems that develop an individual from a small bundle of cells to a living breathing infant – or sometimes well beyond. But although some research has been conducted on artificially replicating the conditions of early pregnancy, a complete artificial womb…
