Prenatal development: What we learn inside the womb

Everything starts the day your mom’s egg meets your dad’s sperm. 4 weeks later, your little brain begins to form.

These postcards tell us if this world is dangerous or safe if food is plentiful or scarce. Knowing nothing else, we learn from those messages.
