The womb that looks like a plastic zip-lock bag is actually a fluid-filled bag furnished with nutrient-rich blood supply, a protective sac of amniotic fluid and everything else required for a fetus to grow and mature.
At that age, a human baby weighs little more than 500 grams, its lungs are not able to cope with air and its chances of survival are low.
Over the years we've got better at caring for those infants, and survival rates have risen, but those who survive are still at risk of infections, lung damage and lasting disabilities.
"Our system could prevent the severe morbidity suffered by extremely premature infants by potentially offering a medical technology that does not now exist", saidthe study's lead author Dr Alan Flake.

In the study, researchers used eight lamb fetuses that were 105 to 115 days old-a level of development comparable to a 23-week-old human fetus. The machine is outside the bag and pumps the needed nutrition and oxygen into the fetus and, at the same time, removes the carbon dioxide inside the bag.
Dr Flake said as one of the survivors reached a year old: "They appear to have normal development in all respects". Currently, it's an electrolyte solution, but Davey is working to add other components to the liquid to make it more like real amniotic fluid.
Most of the lambs were euthanized before they reached full gestations for further study, but one was left to bottle wean and is now a healthy grown sheep.
But the artificial womb could help revolutionize the process and extend human viability for babies that are not able to remain inside a human womb for whatever reason. In the span of four weeks, doctors say the lambs' brains and lungs grew.
