Using the most advanced photographic equipment and methods, including scanning electron microscopes and fibreoptic devices, these photographs trace the development of a human foetus. Here are colour photographs of the winning sperm at the very moment of fertilization; the explosion of the ripened egg as it begins its journey towards the womb; the very first brain cells; even photographs taken from within the womb itself. The chronological story line, week by week through the nine months of pregnancy and beyond, is illustrated with photographs of every stage of the foetus' growth, and is informed by an up-to-the-minute text covering new procedures in pregnancy and labour.
