Nog zo'n wonder der natuur!
De baarmoeder van een vrouw, waar we allemaal in hebben "gezweefd", rondgedarteld, veilig en geborgen, gekoesterd.
Wij vrouwen zijn bevoorrecht 💚
This is a cross-section of the uterus! •
The strenght and flexability of this organ is incredible. Its adaptability mindblowing.
"Before pregnancy, the uterus usually measures only around 7 cm long by 3 to 4 cm across (2.76 inches by 1.18 to 1.57 inches), with a thickness of just 1.5 to 2 cm (0.59 to 0.79 in), and it weighs just 40 grams (1.4 ounces). This puts the non-pregnant uterus at about the size of a chicken’s egg."
"By the end of pregnancy, this will have expanded to a length of around 25 to 36 cm (10 to 14 in), and a thickness of roughly 20 to 22 cm (8.0 to 8.7 in). The uterus’ weight increases by around 20 times compared to its pre-pregnancy state, while its capacity grows to around 500 times its original volume. This is all to accommodate a full-term baby of about 46 to 51 cm (18 to 20 in) and 3.5 kg (7.5 pounds)." pedia.com/uterus-position-size-change/
The ability of the uterus to return to its pre-pregnancy size after birth, fills me with awe at the superpowers of the female body! 🙆🙏❤♀
