0 – 8 weeks

 

 

Below are beautiful photos of living alive babies in the womb, from the website www.ehd.org – with permission.

 

On this page below scroll to the bottom to start with images of what happens in the first week of our life.

And then successively upwards, with 8 weeks – from conception.

Again: age from conception – not amenorrhea. If you want amenorrhea, add 2 weeks.

The biology of prenatal development.
