See Baby Grow app video

The See Baby Grow app video depicts embryos and fetuses, alive in the uterus, throughout every stage of pregnancy. These preborn babies have been scanned using embryoscopy and fetoscopy medical imaging technology, as well as high-resolution, research grade sonography. The narration describes developmental anatomy and physiology as it unfolds through all three trimesters of pregnancy.

The See Baby Grow app is a condensed and updated version of an earlier science documentary titled The Biology of Prenatal Development (BPD). See Baby Grow is produced by the founders of the BPD film project, which was originally distributed by The National Geographic Society. This new app is being produced through an academic foundation called the Education Resource Fund. The following endorsements refer to the BPD film from which See Baby Grow was derived.”

The combination of exquisite images and a clear, carefully researched text makes this video an unparalleled resource for all who are interested in the mysteries of life before birth.

This video production is a uniquely crafted portrayal of human embryofetal development that is completed by a succinct, but very accurate, description of the process. It is a joint effort that has utilized the expertise of many well-known professionals in the field of human growth and development. I have been invested in the field of perinatal pathology for nearly 17 years and I have not encountered a more widely useful, or expertly illustrated and annotated, video production. It is aimed at a nonprofessional and undergraduate audience and, true to its mission, it is thoroughly understandable without suffering from oversimplification. Thus, it is appropriate for education of mature, high school and college students and, also, for general health care education during pregnancy. However, a lot of its content and phenomenal imagery are of such high quality that it could also be considered for use in the education of a wide variety of professionals in the medical field. It would lend itself well to introductory postgraduate coursework for medical, nursing, dental, and medical genetics students, as an easily viewed and integrated overview of human embryofetal development. I strongly endorse this product and believe it is a major contribution to general education in the field of prenatal development.

This video does a fine job bringing nine months of human development to students in about forty minutes. The views of living embryos and fetuses are particularly well presented.

This beautifully produced video provides an impressive overview of human development from conception to birth in a very clear, concise presentation. The informative and engaging format includes a continuous timeline to emphasize the sequence and coincidence of important developmental landmarks, illustrated with a mix of easily understood animations, intra-uterine videos, and state-of-the-art 4D ultrasound and other imaging techniques. It would be a fine introduction to courses on human development at almost any level, from college to graduate medical programs.

The Biology of Prenatal Development does a wonderful job of presenting and describing the milestones of human development from conception to birth. The video sequences and animations provide beautiful visual representations of the concepts described through the narration of this presentation. This is a clear, factual, and elegant presentation of the process of human embryonic and fetal development.

This video is a significant contribution for the education of the general public about human prenatal life. The many colored images of living, moving embryos and fetuses reveal the remarkable beauty of life inside the uterus.

The Biology of Prenatal Development provides a complete presentation of the development of the human embryo and fetus with impressive visual expressions and easy-to-understand language for high school and college students.
