IN upcoming times, the technology reached on that process level where a female can have born baby into lab, they not required a womb. A couple have option that if they willing to born a baby into lab without a mother womb, so they can choose option of artificial womb. In future we can say that biggest changement come into society.

Now there is biggest question raised have you ever imagined that science could reach or progress into this level where a baby produce into a lab, so let understand full phenomena of it below, Baby produced into Lab or in a factory like environment. Have you ever imagined that a baby produced into lap or into a factory-like environment, that field or team called “Ectogenesis”?
Means – genesis outside the body, means a baby born womb prepared outside the body.
Ectogenesis also two types.
Partial Ectogenesis another one full ectogenesis.
Partial ectogenesis, certain part of production exists into mother body and rest part of production or process exist outside the body means into a lab. But our scientific world moving towards full Ectogenesis technology.
Full ectogenesis: refers to an alternative to human gestation. As a normal gestation period of human baby- 9 months, Initial process happen by IVF, once the embryos has been prepared, rather than to a womb it transfers to an artificial womb for the whole duration of the gestation period.
So another question had raised whose company developed or innovate this type of technology or artificial womb facility.
Ectolife is the first largest “artificial womb facility” into world, as it is a just a concept at present but one of the statement had given by company that all parts of it has been prepared certain process had been left on it which they are working on assembling sector.
Once the Artificial womb facility come into environment practically, which offers a way for parents to produce customized babies. The concept is the brainchild of berlin- based Hashem AI- Ghaili, a producer-filmmaker.
Now the another raised in our mind, I hope of your also that what is artificial womb facility and how it works and Need of it. So let’s understand about it,
Artificial Womb facility.
Ectolife facilities: – As per the US newspaper reported that this facility would run on renewable energy, the facility is expected to house 75 labs, each equipped with up to 400 growth pods or artificial womb. These pods or artificial womb provide the same environment which a baby get inside the mother womb.
Along with the parents can track of their baby’s growth and development through a screen on the pods that showcase real–time data. One of the app had also been going developed from where the parents can see the data from their phone app.
Al- Ghaili, said the artificial based system also monitors the physical features of your baby and reports and any potential genetic abnormalities”. Delivery process worked on this case, the baby can be removed from the pod with the “push of the button”.
Al- Ghaii said, if the ethical restriction had been removed then womb facility can become a reality into 10 years. Every single feature mentioned in the concept is 100 percent scientific based and engineers research-based.
According to him all the features has been done but only left building a prototype by combining features into a single device. Once the ethical constrain relaxed, in upcoming feature people willing to adopt this technology.
Technology Should must be for all category people.
Ectogenesis technology should have must for all, as heterosexual couple and a normal couple both couples have rights to use this technology. As in our society we not treat minor category to equally to others.
Over here the big question raised as a heterosexual couple or third gender group people, in society we not give to equal right to marriage, so how they will get right to become a parent. Does society accept this or not? If access to ectogenesis is restricted for individuals belonging these minorities, this would further stigmatize already marginalized people.
Fetus – part of female body.
One of the scholar said that features inside a female body are literally part of the pregnant woman and thus birth, is not just a change of location.
The absence of human pregnancy may impact epigenetic processes and change mother bonding. As this technology have lots of positive benefits, but over here the economical question also raised.
Who should fund this technology?
In addition, the burden responsibility for maintaining these embryos in an artificial placenta would fall on our overloaded hospital system. Should Health insurance fund this technology?
