Tim and Moby start with fertilization, the moment when sperm meets egg, and guide you through all the steps of a baby’s development, from zygote to embryo to fetus. You’ll learn what the amniotic sac, the placenta, and the umbilical cord are, and why babies are born headfirst. If you’ve been wondering exactly where you came from, check out this movie and learn!
