When a woman is pregnant people often say she is "expecting a child" or is "going to have a baby." Although said from force of habit, perhaps a change of language is in order, because a woman who is pregnant is not "expecting" a child, she already has one. The child exists, is living and growing in her womb. Nor is she about to bring the child "into the world," the child is already in the world. the mother's womb is as much in the world as the mother herself.
