This is a fascinating book that takes the reader on an illustrated journey from conception to birth.

The fantastic photography presented in these pages is based on the latest research that feature images created with newly developed, state-of-the-art 3D and 4D ultrasound technology.

The "never-before-published" full-color images in this glossy volume closely follow the course of a pregnancy and the growth and development of a fetus in utero, from conception to full-term infant.

Impressively presented by Peter Tallack - "In the Womb" (like the DVD documentary of the same name) takes the curios reader on a visual journey (thanks to multi-dimensional ultra-sound technology) through the 3 trimesters of development of the human fetus inside its mother.

From conception, to growth and coordination, to actual birth after 9 months of gestation - "In the Womb" takes the whole process stage-by-stage (along with informative text), offering the reader a clear, straightforward understanding of this fascinating transformation of a fertilized egg into actual human life.
