"In the Womb"

Some friends of ours loaned us a dvd, "In the Womb" by The National Geographic. It was a fascinating lesson in the journey from conception to birth.

From the moment of conception, every human embryo embarks on an incredible nine month journey of development. Now, cutting-edge technology makes it possible for us to open a window into the hidden world of the fetus and explore each trimester in amazing new detail. Revolutionary 3-D and 4-D ultrasound imagery sheds light on the delicate, dark world of a fetus as never before and follows a rare fetoscope operation, performed in utero with the hope of correcting life threatening complications before birth.

I remember learning much of what the video discussed from either college courses, parental education, or just general "talk" with friends from over the years, but until your watching it while pregnant, the information doesn't really mean all that much. We both found ourselves repeatedly saying how much of a miracle this pregnancy truly is.

For any of your pregnant women out there, or soon-to-be pregnant women, I would highly recommend this video. In my opinion, it's a "must-see" for anyone who is curious about the development about their unborn child!
