From Conception to Birth: A Life Unfolds

From Conception to Birth

The splendor and beauty of a child’s growth and development in the womb – seen through unforgettable images made possible by revolutionary advances in visualization technology.

The milestones of pregnancy, which before could only be described, can now be witnessed: the heart’s first beats, the appearance of color in the eye, the emergence of toes and teeth, the brain and nervous system directing development, the first movement of tiny legs and arms, the first indications of gender, the wondrous symbiosis of mother and child, the symphony of the body’s systems coming into being and working in concert.

This book tracks the development of a baby from the moment of conception, through the explosively complex early stages of development, and the amazing stages of growth as the baby is nurtured by the mother, ending with the joy of birth.
