Item Description...
Overview
Never-before-published full-color images created with state-of-the-art 3D and 4D ultrasound technology follow the course of a pregnancy and the growth and development of a fetus in utero, from conception to full-term infant. 25,000 first printing.

Publishers Description
Imagine being able to observe with astonishing clarity a child's delicate features as they evolve over the course of a pregnancy, or witness the complex behavior of new human life in utero. Now we can, thanks to the advent of innovative 3D and 4D imaging technologies that provide a powerful diagnostic tool for doctors and cast vivid light on our earliest development—and a profound new way for parents to bond with their babies on a deeper emotional level.

Combining more than 140 images of life-like models based on the latest science, computer-generated illustrations, and 3D ultrasound images with an uplifting, informative text, In the Womb is a week-by-week chronicle of the mysterious, magical progress from embryo to fetus to full-term infant.

Each spread features a central image and information about that particular stage as well as brief commentary explaining what we know and how we know it. For example, at 24 weeks we watch a fetus open and close her eyes, display facial expressions resembling a grimace and a frown, and stick out her tongue (no one has yet established exactly why). And during the last trimester, we learn, she experiences REM sleep and can hear loud noises through the fluids of her mother's body—a first hint of the world that awaits outside the womb.

Based on National Geographic's acclaimed television program, originally aired in 2005 and soon to be supplemented with two more 2-hour segments, In the Womb is the perfect gift for expectant parents and a fascinating perspective for anyone captivated by the miracle of life.

FASCINATING  Mar 9, 2007
This is an excellent product that demonstrates the genius of our Creator and documents the fact that a baby is human life long before birth.
 
Ulimate gift for expectant and new moms!  Dec 6, 2006
This is the book I dreamed of when I was pregnant! It doesn't tell you if you're going to get varicose veins or if its ok to take Tylenol, it tells you about your BABY. It has amazing, beautiful images of the baby at all stages based on the most cutting edge technologies and detailed but accessible information about fetal development. It makes a delightful gift for baby showers, because everyone wants to pass it around. After I gave a copy to my sister for her second pregnancy, she and my mother now make it a standard baby present. Its more exciting than *another* cute outfit or monitor!
 
The complete inside view of pregnancy  Nov 22, 2006
Even if you haven't seen the TV program that this book is (loosely) based on, you should check out this book. The images are incredible. They remind me of the famous photographs by Lennart Nilsson....

What I liked about this book is that it walked you through all the stages of pregnancy, narrating the science as it unfolds with the developing embryo or fetus. There's a lot of information here. Most books about pregnancy focus on the mother, but this really tracks what's going on inside.

I've bought three additional books to give away as gifts to three friends who are pregnant. What could be a better gift than something that really helps you to understand the wondrous processes taking place within?
