Human evolution is known as the process of human beings development on Earth from the now-extinct primates. The Homo sapiens, upright-walking species that lives on the ground, likely first evolved in Africa about 315,000 years ago, curiously — it’s what we name ourselves.

The new features of Homo sapiens are resumed in two aspects, smaller pelvises and bigger brains. Naturally, the organic course of human evolution showed giving birth more difficult during the progression of species, once the pelvic region was narrow and the babies, when passing by the birth canal, had bigger heads.
