blood and milk


They live on blood, the nutrients from mother's blood, in an exchange that occurs in the placenta. Then they're born and they switch to mother's milk. Mother's blood to mother's milk.

They start to breathe air.

If they open their eyes in the womb, not much to see. They they're born and there's lots to see.

In the womb sounds are muffled. Birth: must be a cacophony.


All the senses come alive, breathing and nutrition change dramatically.

And this is just the baby. How about all the changes for the mom and dad?
