In the Womb

In the Womb is a documentary miniseries about life before birth presented by National Geographic Channel. Initially, as a special program about human maternity, the film highlights the growth of embryos inside the uterus of the mother. The program makes comprehensive usage of computer-generated visuals to reconstruct the actual development of the progression.

In The Womb invites you to enter the exciting world of fetal development.

Images using modern, cutting-edge special effects and 4D ultrasounds fascinating documentary introduces you in the womb extraordinary world of fetal development. Follow that rare moment when a fertilized human egg divides into two parts leading to the formation of identical twins, is the intrauterine stage embryos cross lion and domestic cat to become eye-catching animals that you know, find the first chapters of the lives of dogs and of his ancestors, wolves, learn about the extreme forms of reproduction and gestation takes you to some species such as shark whose embryos are cannibals in the womb or as parasitic wasp that invades the body of other animals to develop their own offspring. From the surprisingly bizarre, consider four unique species to reveal the secrets of their fetal development and explore as intrauterine life was not seen before.

From the time of conception, all human embryo starts on an amazing 9 month fetal evolution. Today, cutting-edge modern technology enables National Geographic filmmakers to take a look inside the secret realm of the fetus and also study every trimester in incredible fine detail. With the integration of 4-dimensional sonograms and re-produced computer animation of the fetus growing, this NatGeo video takes you to a month by month detailed tour that made the film much more appealing to watch.

Egg and sperm meet and create a small embryo embarks on a journey full of adventures womb. But if the journey was two, three or four individuals? Modern technology will wear the extraordinary world of twins, triplets and quadruplet. You can hand them out when the mother’s womb? When one pushes, pushes the other to turn? Does prenatal game continues during childhood?

In the Womb: Multiple Pregnancy reveals, over two hours, data amazing and surprising theories about the mysterious and fascinating world of fetal development. Created as a continuation of the acclaimed program “In the Womb” and “In the Womb: Animals” special documentary uses 4D ultrasound images to let you know how fetuses develop and fight for survival during complicated multiple pregnancies.

The program analyzes the stories of three pregnant women and offers the chance to watch her kids interacting fetuses: is pushing, hitting and even, seemingly playing and kissing. Thus, they shape their relations and behaviors that will define them, with high probability, for the rest of their lives. Amazingly detailed images showing how identical twins  hold hands, touch their feet and pull the cord each. According to researchers, these prenatal behaviors, whether aggressive or submissive, may continue after birth and characterize the relationships between brothers for many years. Ultrasound can also reveal the disappearance of one of the fetuses, following its absorption into the uterus, or those that remained continued to grow. This phenomenon is called “the disappearing twin syndrome” and described the program In the Womb: Multiple Pregnancy. Some researchers speculate that this phenomenon occurs more frequently than you would believe and suspect that some individuals are left would be the survivor of such a pair or group.

In The Womb: Multiple Pregnancy technology uses CGI (computer generated imaging) advanced to show the various forms it can take a multiple pregnancy, a fertilized egg from turning on until quadruplet identical fraternal twins occurring every 64 million tasks. This special program presents an embryo divide to form identical twins, who were then joined another fertilized egg, making a surprise mother now expects triplets. The program includes a rare endoscopic laser surgery to correct “syndrome in twin to twin transfusion.” This life-threatening complication of fetuses before birth, because blood is directed to a fetus through the placenta shared by the other brother, so one of the brothers accumulated a large amount of blood, while the other remains with too little. This new procedure and salvation consists in using a laser and a miniature rooms at the end of an endoscope. They are introduced into the amniotic cavity to close the tiny arteries that send blood from one fetus to another. More advanced medical information made possible the survival and birth today in good health more and more fetuses coming from multiple pregnancies. From their close interactions and dangers until the miracle of birth, In the Womb: Multiple Pregnancy takes you into a mysterious and fascinating world.
