Explore the beginnings of life month-by-month...

Conception. The magic of childbirth starts here. Witness first-hand the beginnings of the amazing journey toward a new life. Outstanding medical illustrations and animations will offer the whole family a wonderful glimpse into this remarkable process.

1. You may not even know you are pregnant yet, but at one-quarter-inch, the developing baby already has a heart and structures that will quickly form the organs.

2. Tiny fingers and toes are now visible. Major areas of the brain and peripheral nervous system have also formed. Not only are you eating a lot more, but the baby's needs for oxygen and nutrients have increased too.

3. It's hard to believe we start out looking like this. Watch a baby's face form right before your eyes. Development of the face is a fascinating process in which dramatic changes take place in a short amount of time.

4. Is it a boy or a girl? Just by looking, it might be hard to tell until the fourth month when the baby's sex organs develop. Discover what hormonal changes take place to determine the baby's gender.

5. Ultrasound- it's that time. Ever had one? Know of someone who might be having one? For most, ultrasounds are a big blur. But with a little knowledge and some practice, you can become an expert.

6. Be careful- the baby is listening. During the six month the baby begins to respond to its outside environment. Learn what sounds are natural sedatives and which ones can frighten an unborn baby. You'll also see twins form and learn why some are identical and some are fraternal.

7. Your kids will be thoroughly entertained as they meet Emily, a seven-year-old who's about to become a big sister. Kids ages 3 and up will learn where babies come from, how big they are, and what makes it a girl or a boy. Includes educational activities along the way to make learning fun.

8. Now the baby is preparing for the journey to the outside world. Luckily, the baby's skull is still soft allowing it to easily move through the birth canal. Learn more about the importance of "soft spots" and why they are critical during pregnancy.

9. A miracle is born. And you can see the final stages in great detail. Experience the wonder of childbirth as you take a seat next to Adam and Eve on their journey to the hospital and the delivery room.
