From creating the first cells and tissues that form organs until the first movements of joints, the development of the sense of hearing and smell and the first neural connections. When the baby has all its bodies formed, it is now ready to be born. Normally, this occurs between 37 and 42 weeks.

In formal definitions, the chorionic biopsy is a prenatal test that involves removing a sample of uterine tissue to check or detect whether there are certain genetic diseases or malformation in fetuses with many possibilities of having them. A test is invasive but very reliable. This is done between weeks 11 and 13 of pregnancy. The sample is collected either through puncture through the abdominal wall or through the vagina and cervix.
Bag of waters or amniotic bag

Water bag is the bag which covers and contains amniotic fluid, the liquid that protects baby from shock and allows you to be safe in a State of weightlessness and a constant temperature. At the time of delivery, the bag opens and the amniotic fluid is expelled to the outside. The term ‘water break’ refers precisely to this moment. However, the bag of waters not always breaks at the time of delivery.

The gynaecologist will decide whether speed up delivery or cause an emergency c-section. The causes of fetal bradycardia include the return of cord, placenta previa, or the presence of meconium in the amniotic fluid.
