FROM WATER TO AIR
These are the magical moments of transition from water to air!We know how much you all LOVE these en-caul births (the process of when a baby is still in the amniotic sac as it emerges from the womb during a cesarean birth)!What's MEDspiring about this occurrence is that it can remind each of us that we ALL once did not need to breath air in order to survive!Thats RIGHT!When we were living inside the uterus of our mother, we received oxygen& nutrients from our mothers blood stream (an awesome super power pregnant women have: they breath & eat for two!) The reason each one of us has a belly button is because theumbilical cord we were once connected to was connected our mother's placenta inside the uterus (this placenta is what allowed for us to receive the oxygen & nutrients from momma's blood).First lesson: We were all made to break barriers!We each made a transition from water to AIR!Second Lesson: Adequate amniotic fluid volume is essential in preserving fetal life & is maintained by a balance of fetal fluid production (lung liquid& urine) & resorption (swallowing & intramembranous flow).When in the womb, the fetus must maintain a balance between swallowing amniotic fluid, having it flow through it's newly developing gastro-intestinal system & through the kidneys where it can urinate into the amniotic sac!This function assures proper maturation of the fetal CNS & organ systems (including the lungs).If something alters this cycle, such as an obstruction or agenesis of the fetal kidneys (resulting in an inability to excrete urine), then the amniotic fluid volume dramatically decreases (oligohydramnios).In other cases, fetal malformations (eg, esophageal/ duodenal atresia & anencephaly) can result in the inability to swallow amniotic fluid, causing an excess of fluid (polyhydramnios) is incredible to ponder how life is in constant geometric balance even before we take ourfirst breath on this planet!How cool is that?Happy Friday ladies & gentlemen.
