Access from EThOS:
Human reproduction has been aptly split into three distinct eras. The first of these is when sexual intercourse results in conception, followed by pregnancy and childbirth. The second era of human reproduction occurs via in vitro fertilisation (IVF), whereby the foetus is fertilised outside the woman, but is later implanted into a female host where it is gestated until birth. In the third phase, the foetus is fertilised and gestated entirely in vitro, outside the female host and in an artificial womb/incubator (ectogenesis). Reproductive technologies are marked by the rapidity in which they develop, and as the reproductive revolution shows no sign of relenting, science may be about to propel us into this third wave of reproduction.
