Pregnancy

 

"I must say, Life Begins is impressive in its sophistication, in its approach to the subject, and especially in the way it relates to its audience (it doesn't 'talk down' to the user)."
 
 
Joey Tamer, International Software Consultant
 

With conception, a new life begins a precarious journey of remarkable growth. From just one cell, a small human forms with dextrous fingers, delicate eyes and beating heart. And all of this takes place in 40 weeks--just 280 days. At the same time, the woman begins her own journey--a journey of significant physical changes and a journey into motherhood. This remarkable section chronicles human development with fascinating in utero photography and colorful, interactive graphics.
