Do Babies breath inside their mothers stomach?

i dont know. when they did my ultrasound, i saw the babys tummy inflate and diflate============================== Babies in the uterus (womb) don't breathe as we know it as they are enclosed in a sac of fluid. Their lungs "breathe" in this fluid and then "breathe" it out. They also swallow and excrete this fluid (amniotic fluid). You can see this on an ultrasound scan. When the baby passes through the birth canal (vagina) at delivery, the fluid is "squeezed" out and when the baby is born, they take a breath of air and normal breathing takes place. Sometimes the baby needs to have some left over fluid cleared from their nose and mouth after a normal (vaginal) delivery. They will always have their nose and mouth cleared by suction after a C Section as they don't have it squeezed out during delivery. Hope this helps.
