Interpretation:-
As the seeds (yoni) gets seeded over the parvat?s from the heaven (yonera?g?t = yoni: a?g?t), so does the reta (?ukra dh?tu) which is equal to am?ta (sam?m?tam) reaches the garbha from the ?epa aka penis (?epo garbhasya), like a leaf from the mountain floating and flowing over the downward moving water (of river) – (ret?dh?: sarau par?amiv? dadhyat). || 2.25.1 ||

In the manner in which the p?thiv? provides the substratum (garbham) for all the  mah? bh?t? aka living organisms (yatheya? p??thiv? mah? bh?t?n?? garbham?dadhe), so do I provide for garbha dh?ra?am in you ((ev? dadh?mi te garbha?). Hence I invite you stay in garbha to protect the formed garbha (tasmai tv?m avase huve). || 2.25.2 ||

Hey Sin?v?li ! please bestow protection to the garbha. Hey Saravati devi ! please bestow protection to the garbha. Hey Pu?karasraj? !, the twin brother of A?vini (a?vinobh? dhatt?? pu?karasraj?) bestow protection and stability to the garbha. || 2.25.3 ||
{Note:- Sin?v?li is the name of a goddess (in described as broad-hipped, fair-armed, fair-fingered, presiding over fecundity and easy birth, and invoked with Sarasvat?, R?k? etc). Pu?karasraj?  is the name of one of the two A?vinikum?r?s.}

Let Mitr? and Varu?a deva bestow protection and stability to the garbha. Let B?haspati deva, Indra deva, agni deva and dh?t? deva bestow protection and stability to the garbha in you. || 2.25.4 ||

{Note:- Mitr? Varu?au = m. dual number mitra and varu?a etc. etc. (together they uphold and rule the earth and sky, together they guard the world, together they promote religious rites, avenge sin, and are the lords of truth and light).
B?haspati = lord of prayer or devotion. Name of a deity (in whom Piety and Religion are personified; he is the chief offerer of prayers and sacrifices, and therefore represented as the type of the priestly order, and the purohita of the gods with whom he intercedes for men; in later times he is the god of wisdom and eloquence, to whom various works are ascribed; he is also regarded as son of  a?giras  , husband of t?r? and father of kaca , and sometimes identified with vy?sa in astronomy he is the regent of Jupiter and often identified with that planet.
Dh?t? – dh?t? is a demigod.}

Let the r?j? varu?a deva, dev? sarasvat? , indra deva and v?trah? deva, present with in the sarira, being aware of the science and knowledge behind garbhakara?a (the causes of impregnation), drink those rasa within and bestow with stability of mainatining the pregnancy. (veda tad garbhakara?a? piba) || 2.25.6  ||Let lord Vi??u deva bestow the development of the embryo (vi??uryoni? kalpayatu); and tva??? deva bestow with the structures and organs to mould the shape of the fetus (tva??? r?p??i pi??atu). And Praj?pati deva bestow with unfaultered impregnation and help the fertilisation process (? siñcatu praj?pati:), and the dh?t? deva bestow with succesful gestation/pregnancy (dh?t? garbha? dadh?tu te). || 2.25.5 ||

Hey Agni deva ! you are the garbha aka substratum for the o?adh? (medicinal herbs) and vanaspat? (plant kingdom), and to the entire livingbeings in the universe too (garbho vi?vasya bh?tasya). Hence hey Agni deva please bestow and provide stability to this garbha (fetus). || 2.25.7 ||

Hey mighty and vigourous skanda deva, bestow the foetus inside the garbha, with your mightyness and help us achieve an healthy praj?. || 2.25.8 ||

Hey b?rhat devi, the one who chants s?m?gana,- let you stay in your place at the yoni of garbh??aya and along with somap? devi bestow the couples with an adu??a putra (innocent child). || 2.25.9 ||

Hey dh?t? deva by the virtue of your power, direct the embryo to uterus through either of the two gavinis (fallopian tubes) of this n?ri and bestow her with a pum??sa? putram (male child) and ensure that she delivers the child by tenth month (putram ?dhehi da?ame m?si s?tave).

{ Note :- Gestation is the period of development of the young in viviparous animals, from the time of fertilization of the oocyte (ovum) to birth; see also pregnancy.

The gestation period in other words is the duration of pregnancy, in the human female whose  average length is calculated from the first day of the last normal menstrual period, is 280 days.
The normal limits of the human gestation period are from 37 weeks (259 days) to 42 weeks (293 days); days and weeks are counted as completed days and weeks. If one counts from the moment of conception, the length of time is 266 days (280?14 days). The 280 days as per english calender accounts to 9.33 months when one conisders 30 days as an average for a month.

Having said that – the da?ame m?si s?tave as stated in the Atharva veda, may on the outlook seem to be contradicting the 9 months period of gestation as one happens to see in the current trend of living. It may be noted that, the Indian calender of lunar months have just 28 days in it. Hence the 280 days of gestation (9.33 months of English calender) in now is diffrent from the 10 months of Indian calender equalling 280 days in total }.

Hey tva??? deva by the virtue of your power, direct the embryo to uterus through either of the two gavinis (fallopian tubes) of this n?ri and bestow her with a pum??sa? putram (male child) and ensure that she delivers the child by tenth month (putram ?dhehi da?ame m?si s?tave). ||2.25.11 ||
