Caption: Newborn baby. 16th-century artwork of a newborn baby boy, showing the umbilical cord (lower right) still attached. This cord, which provides a blood supply while in the uterus, is tied off and cut soon after birth. The remnant then dries up and falls off, leaving behind the umbilicus (the belly button). This woodcut is from 'Opusculum physiologum et anatomicum' (1597) by the French physician and surgeon Severin Pineau (died 1619). Pineau specialised in obstetrics and gynaecology, writing books on these subjects that included more open discussion of the mechanics of human reproduction than was usual at the time.
