    Comments about Biology of Prenatal Development DVD:

    I was taking an embryology class at my college this semester, and this video was shown to us in class. I quickly went home and bought myself a copy because I enjoyed it so much. It was helpful in backing up the basics of what we were learning in class without going too far into detail about all of the proteins and hormones required at each state of development. The narrators voice does make it very dull, that would be my only complaint about it. Other than that, the video quality is great, and they get some great shots of the baby's heart beating. I completely lovedddd this DVD.

      This DVD is incredible! The video footage is very rare and beautiful. I'd recommend this for anyone planning to have a baby. I had no idea what when on in the nine months before a baby is born.
