womb room
 n.— «The spaces, called “womb rooms” by some researchers, are predicated on the obvious notion that the best place for a premature baby would be the exquisitely complex environment where, in the last three months of gestation, the neural connections in the baby’s brain grow exponentially as it curls up in amniotic fluid, listening to the mother’s heartbeat, breathing, intestinal gurgling and pitch of her voice.» —“For the Tiniest Babies, the Closest Thing to a Cocoon” by Christine Hauser New York Times May 29, 2007.
