Baby planning: Implantation

Implantation is an event that occurs early in pregnancy in which the embryo adheres to the wall of the uterus. At this stage of prenatal development, the embryo is a blastocyst. It is by this adhesion that the foetus receives the oxygen and the nutrients from the mother to be able to grow. Implantation occurs approximately 9 days after ovulation, ranging between 6-12 days.
