Foetal Development

The growth of fetus is indeed a wondrous phenomenon to observe. Baby growth and development is a continuous process that occurs throughout the gestation period. The growth of the baby in the womb can be classified into the various fetus stages. A baby growth chart provides comprehensive information about fetal growth. This fetal growth chart mentions the weight and height of the fetus in each month of foetal development. This helps to have an estimate of the baby growth month by month. It might be preferable to match this development with the theoretical foetal development month by month. Frequent scanning within a month can help in understanding the baby growth week by week. The rate can individually differ for the growth of the baby, week by week. Pregnancy can be generalized, but only to a certain extent. During pregnancy, baby growth is determined by several factors like nutritional availability. Baby development in womb shall satisfactory occur only if these factors are provided at the right time and amount. To ensure this, baby growth during pregnancy has to be confirmed through regular scans. Development of baby during pregnancy is not only a treat to observe but also something that requires regular monitoring!
