Tubing was the practice of bringing babies to term in vitro, as was common under certain conditions in the Post Diaspora era.

In an age where women served in the military just like men, it was often necessary to leave the fetus behind when the exigencies of the service demanded the mother to go back into space during the pregnancy. Another argument was of course the easy way the fetus could be monitored and the relative ease with which defects could be corrected.

Under Manticoran law, no distinction was made between children brought to term "naturally" or by tubing. The people of Beowulf did not believe in tubing, carrying their children out naturally where possible. (HH4)

The Briarwood Reproduction Center in Landing specialized in tubing unborn children. (HH11)
