Dr Flake said there was no technology "even on the horizon" that could replace a mother's womb at the earliest stages of foetal development.
The scientist clarified the new invention is not meant to extend viability outside of the womb further back than 23 weeks, but to support the infant from 23 weeks to 28 weeks of gestational age, when the effects of prematurity become minimal. Half don't survive, and those who do face a 90 percent risk of lasting health problems.
Dr. Marcus Davey, one of the lead authors of the study, and a prominent figure in the area of Australian fetal research declared that the artificial womb developed at Philadelphia's Center for Fetal Research could significantly improve the outcome of premature births.

The device has only been tested on fetal lambs, and it proved to be effective for the animals. But years of trial-and-error and design tweaks have evolved to the current system, which is a sterile, temperature-controlled plastic bag filled with amniotic fluid created in the lab.

Doctors at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia have developed a new artificial womb that could benefit the tens of thousands of critically preterm (younger than 26 weeks) births in the United States each year. He is shown near giant tanks holding a liquid created to simulate amniotic fluid.
The umbilical cord is attached via tubes to a machine outside the bag, which removes carbon dioxide and adds oxygen to blood passing through it. The lambs' hearts circulated the blood, and there was no need for another pump.
"Most of what know about human fetal development is from the lamb". After 28 days, their lungs had matured and they were then released in normal environment so that they could breathe, which happened as expected. The oldest lamb raised in the Biobag is now over a year old and appears healthy.
