  • Self-correcting embryos

    The Christian Institute

    A University of Cambridge study released in late March found that unborn children who have abnormalities in the early weeks of pregnancy may go on to develop into healthy babies.

    A professor from the university began the research after a medical test on her own baby showed that a quarter of the cells in the placenta were abnormal – however, the child was born healthy. ‘The embryo has an amazing ability to correct itself’, Professor Magdalena Zernicka-Goetz said.
