Meconium staining: Sometimes, however, a baby has a bowel movement before or during birth. If this happens, the amniotic fluid released when the mother's bag of water breaks will have a greenish tint.

Lung Development: Amniotic fluid initially is filtered from the mother's blood and passes through the pregnancy's membranes to create a nourishing cushion during the first few weeks of development.

The fluid pressure then induces growth and opening of the lung's branches. ...Read more
