Pregnancy: a nine month phone call
The placenta can be likened to a phone – passing messages from mum to baby. Watch the video to learn more about the placenta and how it connects mum and baby. Then get yourself some colouring pencils or crayons, download our colouring pages and have fun!
This activity is suitable for younger children who already know where babies come from and doesn’t require any detailed biological knowledge (children under 12).

The placenta is a very important organ, yet often overlooked. At the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, we do research on the biology and the function of the placenta. We also conduct large population studies which aim to identify key features that could predict problems in pregnancy. Our ultimate goal is to find better ways of helping mums to stay healthy during pregnancy and to give birth to healthy babies.
