From the moment of conception, every human embryo embarks on a journey of an incredible month nine of development. Now, cutting-edge technology makes it possible for National Geographic In the Womb to open a window into the hidden world of the fetus and explore each trimester in amazing new detail. Revolutionary imagery sheds light on the delicate, dark world of a fetus as never before.
This film is actually a combination of four-dimensional real-time sonograms and re-create “”animations””” of a developing fetus. I am not referring to cartoons, but a recreation of a baby in the womb of a real one. With both, the fetus is really moving and shows just how it develops, moves, etc. I would say it is 5 minutes of footage all 4D ultrasound and the rest is re-creation of images (which is very detailed and very more attractive to see).
We are currently studying the biology and life science so this film was very appropriate and fits well with our biology books and materials. A new contraption that had yet to read or hear was that the sperm could smell the egg, which helps them find it. We laugh about that part, which was totally new to us. There are only about 5 minutes dedicated to giving real light and only a quick view of the baby’s head and shoulders at birth.
