Blood Circulation Changes from Unborn to Newborn

Your unborn child is busy doing his or her own thing, what with listening to the heartbeat, doing gymnastics, kicking, reading the stock market reports, and so on. The child is dependent on the masterfully-designed placenta, but recreation time and the needs from mother are about to change. Of particular note is the circulation.

An unborn child depends on the placenta to do most of the work. At the moment of birth, changes that the Master Engineer designed take place.

Most of the child's inner workings are performed by the placenta, but at birth, its services are no longer required. Now everything needs to be switched over so that the baby's system does the purpose for which the Master Engineer designed it. When the umbilical cord is clamped and severed, amazing changes in the circulatory system occur.
As humans, we like to build things. But as any architect or engineer can tell you, just because you can imagine it in your mind or even sketch it on paper doesn’t mean you can actually build something that will work. When it comes to building a house or a computer, the process involves much more than just putting a bunch of materials together in the right location. It also requires a correct sequence, specific timing, a controlled environment, additional parts used for temporary scaffolding or temporary function, directed energy, and an army of workers that all understand how to read and follow the blueprints for the design they are bringing to life. No one would deny that such complicated creations originate from a masterful designer. As we will see, the nature of fetal circulation resonates with extraordinary design.
