Scientists estimate - this time a tiny heart baby "pumps"
about 23 liters of blood a day!
The fruit periodically empty your bladder. Urine flows in

"artificial uterus", this sense of security, comfort and
relaxation they had never felt (better to say a long time ago).
The aquatic environment is a familiar and favorite for fetal environment
habitat. That is why huge popularity in the world acquired the idea
birth in water, or the idea of early learning kids swimming.
