Using animated graphics, this program clearly and vividly illustrates the biological functions of the diferent parts of the male and female reproductive systems. It shows how millions of sperm race through the uterus and into the fallopian tube where fertilization occurs, and subsequently how the fertilized egg develops into an embryo. Program also describes the basics of menstruation. Animated graphics vividly detail the different stages or trimesters of embryonic and fetal development. The program also follows a young couple through the woman's pregnancy, as both husband and wife describe the importance of good nutrition, sleep, low stress, and avoidance of alcohol and drugs. The process of birth is described as the young couple talks about their joy at the birth of their baby daughter.
