The miracle of childbirth

I am a Friend with a wonderful 16 year old boy with Down Syndrome.
We were speaking about Toldos, and Vayetzei, and Yakov and Eisav. I told him I was a twin, and that Yakov and Eisav were twins.
He asked me how the baby comes out of the mother's stomach. I told him that sometimes they make an operation, and take the baby out from the stomach.
And the other times?

........awkward silence on my part.....

"I think we should continue with this Mishna!"
