Have experiments been done with animals to see if they can carry a child to term in zero-G or in a centrifugal equivalent? And if the baby will develop normally?

> Re science fiction writers and centrifugal gravity, Larry Niven's univere had a spinning asteroid in the Belt, specifically for pregnant Belters. You stayed there the entire pregnancy, so your baby developed in Earth gravity (or equivalent). I presume that Confinement Asteroid had rooms where conception could occur...Kate Sent from Samsung Mobile on O2

confinement asteroid was also made from a nickel iron asteroid - so it
not only had gravity, but also had very HEAVY radiation shielding for
those 9 months ..
