The June 2004 date that should have filled the 33-year-old man and his wife with happiness, epitomized as they were ecstatic about the arrival of their newborn, was the gloomy period that will never come to an end. Hardly that they had had received this day as the one where they would say goodbye to their husband. Seeing that his wife suffered so intensely in the labour, the man's mind was emptied to the last fiber. It, eventually, took his life. The family saw their new born healthy and the mother safe from any complication. However, the loss of the father was not expected.

What made the consequences to be so dramatic and catastrophic? To grasp the way the story unfolded, it becomes of primary importance to delve into the history of the human reproduction whereby they go through the stages of fertilization to birth.

The universe comes to life with conception, usually depicted as a beautifully miracle but actually, a subtle process loaded with complexity. While most people who think of pregnancy associate it with particular conditions, the fact is that a fetus may develop at any time during the next cycle, including the last days of menses, which underlie the importance of birth control measures.

The menstrual cycle is a supervisory phase of 28 to 29 days, but it is subject to groove restriction. It characterized by a border of hormonal fluctuations. Release of the egg, which is a fully developed one, is the best stage of the ovary where a fertilization can be performed. Sperm that supplies nutrients and is driven by the pulses of the uterus begin traveling to reach the egg, expecting it to meet them.

Of all the millions of swimmers released in one's ejaculation, his journey will be the most difficult and has the smallest chances of reaching the end of the female reproductive tract to fulfill the primary function of his existence—fertilization of the oocyte. Easily, the most fortunate ones make it to the end but inevitably, this is after they have crossed through different check posts and after they have overcome countless roadblocks. Eventually when the macabre fray is over, only one out of many will somehow push through the obstacles planted by the egg to complete the cycle of fertilization.

Having been fertilized the egg starts its process of cell division as a result of which the blastocyst which in some time attaches on the wall of the uterus is formed. Then the embryo underwent the development stage which is the formation of organs with time. It was a gradual process and was carried over from a few weeks, this was regardless of the gender of the embryo. The fetus's viability stage starts around 21 to 24 weeks, and the fetus can survive under ideal circumstances outside the womb.

As pregnancy progresses, the female body is being prepared for birth using a specific physical conditions. An effort, has a rhythm of the abdominal muscles, thus signifying that the process of childbirth has started. As the second stage kicks in, the woman will likely go through a rupture of the amniotic sac which, most commonly, is known as "the water breaking," a key sign of the baby being on the way.

Apart from the spontaneous sensations of labor, which differ for each person and involve confining the discharges quantity and the uterine cervix opening, this is the main stage which leads to vaginal birth. Delivering a healthy baby is a natural process but it won't come without many pains and discomforts that need the woman's resistance and help by the healthcare providers.

For some men, birth is a phenomenon that can put them in a mode of all-encompassing feelings, from amazement to aelsos. It has been proven that the emotion of the expectant father may range from stories on extreme fear and near fainting during the nine months period. On the infrequent occasions, such as the disgusting accident that occurred in June 2004, for instance, some medical interventions (such as epidural administration) can go wrong leading to disastrous consequences which were unimaginable.

The issue of childbearing is associated with some difficulties, yet for many people it proves to be a tremendous time full of magic. Although the journey's watrther may be filled with challenges, love and the ultimate reward- a new life - mark dignity and fame of the human psyche.

Someone who did not survive during the labor might have the man’s death as a regret. The challenge for the future however, is that while we strive to understand the complexities of human reproducition better, let us humbly proceed our search walking in awe and amazement at the intellectual side of the extraordinary things human body is capable of.
