Recommendation + personal experience
I remember that moment I realized that my wife's stomach size is what supposed to be my child, with God's help, I studied this film, explaining me something that is very difficult for me personally to understand: how our body produces live? How does it work?
If you think that I got it after seeing the film and that I understood all of these scientific facts, then you're wrong, its still seems like a crazy miracle that happens one after the other in the all wide World.
I strongly recommend everyone to see that movie, it shows the very little detailsof the process and even shows us the fetus in a verity of positions, moves, making faces, etc that we cant see without that film.
you will enjoy it.

I HIGHLY recommend the film. It's a fairly new documentary about how babies develop and it's quite interesting. I thought I would do a little review for you all since some of you are midwives and others are looking for informational videos. There are good and bad things about the documentary, but the end made me so very, VERY happy that I've forgiven the film all of it's faults.
Con: The intro is of a woman in labor screaming bloody murder like they do in the movies while giving birth. You'll forgive this later, however. Read on.
Con: I kinda almost fell asleep at the beginning when they were covering conception. It was stuff we've all heard a million times in school, so it was pretty redundant. Get to the babies already!
Pro: Some of the computer graphics and filming was really amazing. They use all new footage, no recycled stuff from other documentaries.
Con: Sometimes the film would state some fact and then not back it up in any way, so you'd be left wondering "gee, that's new. Where on earth did they get THAT?" For example, during one part, they said that a woman is more likely to have a miscarriage if she experiences stress, has an immune disorder, or if she has previously given birth to a boy. Now, I've had three miscarriages, so I've read tons of information about it and never have I heard that giving birth to a boy makes you more likely to have a miscarriage. I thought "wow, really? Where'd they hear that?" but they just went on to the next subject without explaining.
Con: 99% of the babies in the film are not real - they are either rubber models (which look absolutely fantastically realistic, by the way) or these super creepy alien-looking computer generated babies that totally freaked me out. They were a bit disturbing looking.
Con: They stressed the value of ultrasound in the video and I'm personally against it, but it doesn't lose a lot of points with me because a lot of women are pro ultrasound.
Pro: They did mention that ultrasound might be harmful, though it is not "known" to cause problems in babies. They also mentioned that while we can't hear ultrasound, babies CAN because it creates an echo inside the water-filled uterus. They explained that babies "run" from it because it is extremely loud - somewhat like standing next to a subway train.
Pro: They provided TONS of the most...
