Slightly inspired by Ripple In Space's thread on 'Can pregnant women ascend.
It makes you wonder that with their pouches inside them where they keep small Goa'uld symbiotes - where can they store the baby?
There's an early SG1 episode where there's a flashback to a pregnant Drey'auc.
In humans, organs like the intestines and stomach are squashed into the back, in Jaffa women perhaps the organs can shrink or can be squashed in more, or their organs may move up?

It's simple the stork bring's them babies in the middle of the night seriously though good question.I guess you can put it down to a weird loop hole in the show
Last I checked women didn't store babies in their stomachs lol, I'd hate to be a baby and get drowned in alcohol if my mother went out on a bender ...
^ You know what he mean's though
Years ago I remember seeing a documentary in my Biology class about a reptile that carries its offspring (rather than laying an egg). Apparently since reptilian physiology isn't designed for this process, this unique species' organs literally rearrange themselves, and it can then accommodate more than half-a-dozen of them. I'd imagine that the Jaffa women would undergo a similar process.
Thanks for the mention mappalazarou .
When human women get pregnant all of their organs move out of the way for the expanding womb, the heart/liver, etc all move upwards. I'd imagine it'd be the same for Jaffa women seeing as they are just humans that were genetically altered by the Goa'uld how ever many thousands of years ago.
No, they just crap out a copy of themselves.
Best Stargate quote:
Sheppard: (yells to McKay) Canadian football is a joke! Celine Dion is overrated! Zelenka is smarter than you are!
Green is your friend.
Perhaps the Goa'uld pouch closes during pregnancy and shifts position to accommodate the enlarged womb.
no they obviously lay eggs
Are there any Jaffa women at all?
I thought all the women with snakes in there bellys where some sort of Priestess in Tempels, and didnt took part in any millitarry actions.
I would have thought the question in this thread title is self-explanatory - of course Jaffa women can become pregnant.. otherwise there would be no more jaffa!
I was watching Birthright from SG1 and something occured to me - what happens when a Jaffa lady is with child.
Obvioulsy there would be a bump. Well what happens to the symbiote? Does the baby just grow behind/around the sympiote pouch?
We have seen with Sha'raa that a Goa'uld using a Human as a host has an adverse affect on the unborn child - hence the reason the symbiote did not 'show' it's self until the end of the pregnancy. Does the same thing apply for a Jaffa? Do they remove their symbiote?????
Does anyone have any thoughts, suggestions or maybe answers from the show?

Jaffa are just incubators for the Goa'uld, kind of like a refrigerator. No DNA is exchanged between the two.
As for preganancy, I would assume that the Goa'uld pouch is quite small and located in the upper part of the abdomen, and assuming Jaffa have functioning uteruses, the pouch would just be pushed further up into the abdomen to accommodate space for the developing fetus.
*has a gross mental image now*
What about the stretching? I've heard ( I have no idea if its actually true) that when women who have had navel piercings fall pregnant, the piercing hole stretches and can rip more tissue.
What about the ol' incubator?
*pictures the symbiote just falling out*
remember t'ealc son. also the children do not recieve their first symboite till 12,13 something like that.
also remember the the episode with the female jaffa where they killing all the girls at birth, and they were raising them in secret
i believe they only way for the child to be a harsis(sorry spelling) i believe is for both parnts to be goulds not jaffa since the symboites do not interact with the host.
