In case you have missed this...
Researchers at the Charité university hospital in Berlin, Germany, had (convinced?) a pregnant woman to deliver her baby in an MRI camera!
Spectacular experiment! Creating buzz and headlines!
If you ask me, this is a great combination of great PR work and serious research. Everyone involved gets fame and cred (also the baby I hope), and the research group will be granted to take their work to new heights. We need to learn more about the birthday, probably the most hazardous day in our lifes (if we don’t consider our very last day, lethal as it is...) The actual journey to life, so often complicated (as you know), needs more researched.
Off-topic: while browsing the Charité web I found an extraordinary webcam. These German cranes make me... happy!
