Unusual Space Startup - SpaceLife Origin

This is an unexpected, at least by me, space startup:

I will wait to see if they have funding to see if this is serious in any way shape or form.  They did manage to draw enough interest from The Atlantic to publish this.

Nothing better than strapping a pregnant woman into a heavily vibrating 3g environment...

I don't think giving birth in space would do anything.  However studying how an in-natal infant develops would be interesting.  I think we have had rats do this.  The thing is will the brain be able to develop the inner ear correctly where there is no up or down?
