Before Birth: Prenatal Development for Baby, Mom, and Dad
Learn what parents can do to take care of themselves and bond with their baby before birth. From Magic of Everyday Moments — Series 4.
The human brain begins forming very early in prenatal life (just three weeks after conception), but in many ways, brain development is a lifelong project. That is because the same events that shape the brain during development are also responsible for storing information—new skills and memories—throughout life.
Taking good of yourself and your baby during your baby’s first 9 months of development help set the stage for a lifetime of development.
