6.3.1 Maternal and Placental Hormones Supporting Fetal Growth and Development (Animated Graph) -What is the relationship between fetal growth and placental growth during gestation? -What is the relationship between fetal length and fetal weight during gestation? -What is the relation between fetal lung maturation and gestational age? -What are the functions of chorionic gonadotropin, placental lactogetn, prolactin, estradiol, progesterone and cortisol during pregnancy? -How do concentrations of chorinoic gonadotropin, placental lactogen, prolactin, estradiol, progesterone and corisol in maternal blood change during pregnancy?
6.3 OBJECTIVE: To describe how placental and maternal hormones regulate maternal physiology to support fetal growth and development.
