by itself; it is the powerful muscular contractions of the uterus that 

push it out. If the uterus should refuse to work, if its walls were 

too thin or too weak, the child could not come out, but would have to 

be taken out with forceps. Still greater changes than in the uterus 

take place in the child itself. At the moment of conception it is the 

size of _the head of a pin_; at the moment of birth it weighs from 

seven to ten pounds; at the moment of conception it is a minute, 

undifferentiated mass of protoplasm, just a single fertilized cell; at 

the moment of birth it consists of millions and millions of cells, 

which have become differentiated into numerous harmoniously working 

organs, and different tissues, such as brain and nerve tissue, 

muscular tissue, connective tissue, bone, cartilage, etc., etc. A 

truly wonderful process. And in the meantime this child, which is 

biologically a parasite (though it is not a nice name to call it by) 

draws its sustenance from the mother's blood, and the mother has to 

provide nourishment for two. And, besides providing nourishment, her 

excreting organs, her kidneys, must work for two, because her system 

has also to get rid of the child's excretions. No wonder that the 

pregnant woman, particularly under an artificial unhealthy mode of 

living, is subject to many troubles and disturbances.
