Lung development in humans happens over five different stages. After the embryo stage, a baby’s lungs develop in what’s called the pseudoglandular stage. During this stage, which lasts from about 5 weeks to 17 weeks gestation, the baby’s lungs can be compared to a tree trunk with branches sprouting from it.

A lung bud develops from a tube of cells called the foregut (which will itself later go on to form the gut). This bud separates into two. These two buds will eventually become your baby’s right and left lungs. Your baby makes lung movements in the womb as if they are practising breathing. The process starts at 6 weeks of pregnancy, when a small pouch of tissue called the lung bud is created from the front wall of the tube that will become your baby’s esophagus.

Over the next week, this single bud will split into two separate buds (one for each lung), and the windpipe will start to form between them. Lung development begins early in pregnancy, but is not complete until the third trimester. Between 24–36 weeks of pregnancy, the lungs begin developing alveoli – the tiny lung sacs that fill. As the baby’s lungs continue to develop, more alveoli are added during a stage called the saccular stage because the lungs begin to resemble collapsed sacs.

This stage lasts until about 35 weeks of. Scientists develop fluid-filled artificial womb to help premature babies. Kate Kelland and set up the system so that this flowed into and out of the bag.

Lung development in fetal lambs is. As the baby develops during weeks six through ten of pregnancy, the intestines get longer and push out from the belly into the umbilical cord. By the eleventh week of pregnancy, the intestines normally go back into the belly. If this does not happen, an omphalocele occurs. The omphalocele can be small, with only some of the intestines outside.

In the womb, the baby’s lungs are filled with fluid. This is normal and healthy. During labor, your baby’s body releases chemicals to help their lungs push out the fluid. The pressure of the birth.

Thinking about V-day made me think of the lung development of babies. When I was pregnant with DS I started having contractions that were very strong and started making some progress around 35 weeks. The nurses kept telling me that boys had a harder time at a younger age than girls specifically the lung development.

Thus they were considered full term. But I’ve seen a few episodes of A Baby Story and those types of shows, where the doctors have done an amnio at 37-38 weeks to test for lung development and found that the lungs weren’t fully developed, so they couldn’t induce the mom’s early like they wanted to.

Its lungs develop more fully, eyelids open, and first trimester mature and grow during this trimester.

Because lung fluid production slows in late pregnancy and absorption of lung fluid begins in early labor, after birth only about 35% of the original lung fluid volume needs to be cleared.151,176,187 Ventilation of the lungs leads to liquid dispersion across the pulmonary epithelium (Figure 10-15).

Foetal lungs contain ‘lung liquid’ (LL) which is secreted by the pulmonary epithelial cells and flows out through the developing airway into the amniotic fluid or gastrointestinal tract, flushing debris from the airways as it does so.

  • Human pregnancy typically lasts around 40 weeks and is divided into three trimesters of three months. What intrigues you the most about this developmental process?

  • God is amazing. The fact that this delicate being is so safe inside the uterus and goes through all these different transformations is a frickin’ miracle. And to feel it happening inside you is another miracle.

  • To all infected, sickness, or viruses there is always a herbal treatment for it, I’m still wondering why you think you can’t get rid of an illness you where not created with.
    For cure, if you are diagnosed with the following illness! HPV, HSV CANCER, CANCER, DIABETES, GENITAL HERPES. ETC..Kindly contact Dr mercy for cure via email. [email protected] or whatsapp +2348141659546..because he actually help my mum to cure 4years of cancer

  • “Even by fathers…”
    I don’t understand the underlying implication. Do you think they generally don’t care about the babies’ whereabouts or that they somehow ought to know this particular fact beforehand?

  • Hi there, 
    The explanation provided in this video is a myth and no longer believed to be the actual mechanism for fluid resorption in the newborn.  It is more associated with changing hormones (epinephrine, thyroxine, vasopressin, glucocorticoids) that lead to changes of sodium resorption causing fluid to be reabsorbed by the body (lymphatics).  
    This article found at:  mentions this mechanism as well 

  • I had a C-section on June 11.2014 and my baby is still in the NICU.  My baby have TRANSIENT TACHYPNEA for now,my question is to you,how long was it before he started breathing normally? I’m worry.I’m going to leave everything in God hand.


  • My question is, with advancements in modern science is it possible to inhibit the closing of that artery and have a human that can live in an amniotic environment? or what I also want to know is it possible with science to expand the time a human develops in the womb for  FEW EXTRA MONTHS? can one delay birth? can we nurture a life inside an artificial womb>?

  • 3:6. He is the One Who is shaping you in the wombs as He wishes; there is no Deity except Him, the Exalted, the Wise.

    It is told in verse 59: 24 that He is Lord Allah, the Creator of the soul, the Maker of the body and the Synchronizer of the soul with body; to Him belongs names submitted by the Best Book Adhikr; whatever in Heavens and in Earth glorifies Him, He is the Exalted, the Wise. See explanation 2: 28 and 129.

  • My mom got delivery during her 6 and half months of pregnancy due to some health issues….as child i used to be very week.. i am 19 years old now….living a healthy life….

  • Very good video, except the uterus does not shrink back to its original size immediately after delivery. It takes several weeks. Let’s also remember to acknowledge postpartum bodies!

  • It’s amazing to actually feel that there is something moving (kicking here and there) inside my belly, and to know that this is gonna be a beginning of
    a human being
    That will grow up and have a life, pretty much like how we are living now.
    It’s such a magical experience that only a woman could have ✨

  • “13 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.

    14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.”Psalms 139:13-14

  • O People, if you should be in doubt about the Resurrection, then [consider that] indeed, We created you from dust, then from a sperm-drop, then from a clinging clot, and then from a lump of flesh, formed and unformed—that We may show you. And We settle in the wombs whom We will for a specified term, then We bring you out as a child, and then [We develop you] that you may reach your [time of] maturity. And among you is he who is taken in [early] death, and among you is he who is returned to the most decrepit [old] age so that he knows, after [once having] knowledge, nothing. And you see the earth barren, but when We send down upon it rain, it quivers and swells and grows [something] of every beautiful kind.” (Quran 22:5)

  • Then We made the sperm-drop into a clinging clot, and We made the clot into a lump [of flesh], and We made [from] the lump, bones, and We covered the bones with flesh; then We developed him into another creation. So blessed is Allah, the best of creators.

    Quran 23 14

  • this shows how thankful you should be that you made it through a race of other souls and grew to the point you could read this or i could type this!

  • In several verses of the Noble Qur`an, Allāh (SwT) has mentioned the creation and stages of transformation of the child. It is by observing this miracle that one inevitably desires to thank and revere Him, the best of Creators.

  • You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.
    Psalms 139:13‭-‬16 NLT

    To think we were made by the God of the Universe! The Creator of Heaven and Earth! He loves us so much that he desires relationship with us. For we were made for his glory!!������

  • Thank you very much for making such a nice video… once more thanks… i wanted to be a doctor and by watching this it has inspired me more to be a doctor in my life… thnx once again….

  • Even by fathers

    Are we really going to perpetuate this stereotype that men shouldn’t seek to understand these biological processes? Just because it’s to do with babies?  

    ALL GENDERS need to stop handicapping each other with sexist stereotypes.

    P.S. sorry about the CAPS

  • Not entirely accurate! Babies don’t NEED to scream at birth. Some of the fluid reabsorbs. If babies “noisy” or shallow breathing persists after more than, lets say 30 mins depending on the general sate of the babe, then medical intervention is called for. Making a baby cry is not justified. IF you pay attention a baby that had a non violent birth either doesn’t cry or just whimpers a bit. On the other hand babies who’s head and body was pushed and probed and pulled will scream. A pain cry is very different!

  • Dear moms and dads, I created the channel where I am answering all questions about babies, taking care of babies, their health, how to increase breast milk supply, what nursing mother should eat and what she should know, etc, etc.. Please, support me and what I am doing by subscribing, it really means a lot to me having understanding that i can be a blessing for you:))

  • Dani, we had preemie twins 1 month early, one was fine, the other never cried & struggled to breath for hours as the Dr. contemplated on a medevac to the nearest NICU.  The nurses connected him to oxygen via those tubes in his nose & monitored the saturation, however; My question for you is why the nurses never made an attempt to remove meconium by suction much earlier?  My wife was still recovering C-section as I stood there questioning everyone if there was anything else that could be done and was told that was the normal process.  Your thoughts?

  • Now that I watch this video I realize how much I loved being pregnant, I had so many symptoms and I was always sick but now that I look back, I actually miss being pregnant lol feeling the little kicks and being excited about meeting baby

  • 37 trillion cells with 4 quadrillion connections in the human brain on scientific side make this new life the most complicated thing in the universe and on the religious side it’s the only way in creation to make a soul. Pregnancy is divine

  • Interesting takeaways:

    In US, 3M babies born each year; 1M killed each year.
    Babies gestate for 40 weeks in utero; the process ARBITRARILY divided into “trimesters” (presumbly because 9 doesnt divide evenly)
    Human development is a continuous, unbroken process from fertilization to death
    There is, indeed, a little human inside that pregnant mother.

    Please dont kill it. Thank you.

    My son died in my arms after 35 mins. Of suffering from suffocation for the negligence of the entire staff that day! 3;23;1980
