“Life in the Womb (9 months in four minutes)”

Published on

I am particularly interested in well-executed accounts of fetal development, particularly given that our daughter-in-law has recently given birth to two children. NRL News Today has published numerous articles about YouTube videos, and I would like to draw your attention to one such article: “Life in the Womb (9 months in four minutes)”

The video employs a similar approach to those that have been found to be effective in capturing the viewer’s attention. This includes a clear demonstration of the natural progression of fetal development, beginning with fertilization and concluding with the first cry. However, there are additional elements that contribute to the video’s effectiveness.

One such element is the video’s use of a double back. This technique allows the viewer to observe the fully developed outer ears of the fetus, followed by a schematic representation of the middle and inner ear. This sequence of events serves to convey a message about the complexity of fetal development.

The video provides examples of the behaviors that expectant parents can observe on 4-D ultrasounds, including smiles, yawning, swallowing of amniotic fluid, nibbling on toes, and the child’s movement to gain maneuvering room as it grows larger.

It is likely that I have previously encountered this video, but it does an excellent job of illustrating the final stages of the fetal journey, namely the descent through the birth canal.
One additional point to consider is that those who are pro-life are aware that the umbilical cord is the conduit through which the fetus receives nutrients and oxygen from the mother. However, the video “Life in the Womb (9 months in four minutes)” helps us to appreciate the endless fascination that the womb must be for the unborn child.


Daniel Miller is responsible for nearly all of National Right to Life News' political writing.

With the election of Donald Trump to the U.S. presidency, Daniel Miller developed a deep obsession with U.S. politics that has never let go of the political scientist. Whether it's the election of Joe Biden, the midterm elections in Congress, the abortion rights debate in the Supreme Court or the mudslinging in the primaries - Daniel Miller is happy to stay up late for you.

Daniel was born and raised in New York. After living in China, working for a news agency and another stint at a major news network, he now lives in Arizona with his two daughters.
