EctoLife artificial womb facility is a concept of Berlin-based “producer, filmmaker, and science communicator” Hashem Al-Ghaili that aims to eliminate pregnancy and labor. The idea is to get pregnant in a new way with the baby growing in an idealized, but completely inhuman environment: transparent “growth pods” arranged by their hundreds in human baby farming operations.
Al-Ghaili’s idea of EctoLife Artificial Womb Facility is just a piece of science fiction an extension of the current state of fertility research. Though he believes it can see daylight within decades.The idea of EctoLife Artificial Womb Facility can go a long way as pregnancy can be exhausting, painful, nauseating, intrusive, inconvenient, and sometimes flat-out dangerous for a mother. Additionally, if you have the habit of smoking, partying, stress, or catching the disease while you are pregnant may not go well when you are trying to give your child the best start you can.
The future of pregnancy might not be as far off as you think; Al-Ghaili says we’re just a few years away from being able to replicate the ideal gestation conditions in a temperature-controlled, infection-free womb with a view. An artificial umbilical cord can provide oxygen and nutrition as your baby floats in artificial amniotic fluid, continually refreshed with precisely tailored hormones, antibodies, and growth factors to help it thrive. Baby waste products can be removed and run through a bioreactor where they are enzymatically converted into “a steady and sustainable supply of fresh nutrients.” Music for kids can help encourage development, creativity, and cognitive function. With our little speakers, the tyke has access to brain-boosting classical music as well as your own soothing voice.
New technology will monitor your baby in real-time, including vital signs, physical anomalies or abnormalities, and genetic concerns. You can even watch live HD footage of your child developing from embryo to nine months on your phone.The prefrontal cortex is most active during the first few years of life, but it develops slowly. Human babies are not as developed at birth as those of other animals, partly because the child’s brain is so large relative to the size of the mother’s pelvis.
Some people might think it’s impersonal and cold to not have the doctor physically present. For those parents, Al-Ghaili has more technology to soothe their minds. It offers haptic suits that allow parents to feel their baby kicking, or you can tune into a special live video of your wife through a VR headset or 360-degree camera at any point you choose.When it comes to raising a child, there are plenty of choices. If you don’t want to do so in a 400-pod baby lab farm that boasts 75 baby labs and pumps out 30,000 babies per year, you can install your own at-home battery-powered pod instead. Heck, keep it there post-birth if you want some younger siblings like the rest of us!
You might not experience a birthing room that feels like home, but at least you haven’t been weighed down and left an exhausted mess. Instead, after the birth of your first child, you’ll return to the office feeling physically refreshed and well-rested.Tests for determining genetic ills and embryos with the best chance of success at least give future generations a fair chance to avoid birth defects and lead decent lives. But Al Ghaili cautions that the technology being used now could easily be abused.
As it continues to be developed and made available, EctoLife will start to look like a pretty attractive option for people that want to have a baby, but who can’t imagine the physical and emotional trauma of pregnancy or childbirth. Heck, you might not even need a day off work—simply co-parent with your significant other after a long day at the office, head down to the baby farm (or “ectoparadise”), pop the lid on life as a parent…and get all the information you need from us about any potential genetic abnormalities in advance.New information is emerging about different methods you can use when it comes to raising your children. The video below is all about the benefits of using an artificial womb. I don’t know about you, but I find this concept pretty twisted, inhuman, and dystopian. But the EctoLife facility reminded me of the Matrix; plus, there’s Paul Verhoeven-esque quality in the narrator’s voice. It seems that Al-Ghalili wants to provoke strong reactions.Further, he concluded by saying if I search my heart, I’ve got two kids that I feel very connected with and close to, and I didn’t have to go through pregnancy or labor; I left that bit to my wife. So I’m hardly in a position to criticize the idea. We’d be fascinated to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
