Must See! Inside Pregnancy: How Food Reaches Your Baby (3D Animation)





Many would advise that once you're pregnant, it's like you're eating for two.

Technically speaking, that's true but in the sense that you don't need to double your normal consumption of food because your baby is not directly getting the food you eat from your mouth to his umbilical cord.

In fact, the mom's diet goes through her digestive tract, as it normally would. Nutrients are then absorbed through the stomach, and more so through the small intestine. 

Then the  baby gets all of his food, as well as his oxygen and water, from its mother’s bloodstream. 
The placenta, a very efficient filter that rejects harmful elements, such as bacteria that can harm the fetus, connected the mother to her baby.

Thus, the mother's blood in the placenta flows in to a network of blood vessels and capillaries. Molecules in the mother’s blood like glucose, proteins, fats, oxygen, etc. flow out of the mother’s blood supply and are absorbed into another network of blood vessels and capillaries containing the baby’s blood supply. The baby’s blood then flows through the umbilical cord back to the baby.

The baby’s waste products (like C02) are disposed of in the mother’s blood stream as well. It is a two-step process. 

To see how its done, watch this amazing 1-minute 3D animation video that shows how a baby eats inside his mother's womb.
