Implantation cleavage video

When the embryo enters the uterus after its journey through the fallopian tube, it seeks a place to stick to. It is assumed the place to be selected must be sticky so that the embryo does not fall off as a result of gravity. The embryo then begins to grow. This is the first time there is a physical contact with maternal tissue and it is recognised in physiology as the moment of maternal recognition of pregnancy. Shortly after this the woman becomes aware she is carrying a baby because of release of hormones, must especially human chorionic gonodotropins (hcg) which will then influence the physiology of the woman. Fetal membranes are formed as amnion, chorion  and later the placenta. They help to provide the interphase between  mother and child and also the much needed blood supply and nutriment for the growth of developing child.
