First Nine Months of Life
A worldwide best seller now available in paperback, "The First Nine Months of Life" has been acclaimed by mothers, doctors, nurses and scientists as the most sensitive, informative and exciting account of the first nine months of our lives - the months before birth. Still the best book of its kind addressed to the general reader, "The First Nine Months of Life" combines Geraldine Lux Flanagan's moving, often poetic text with vivid illustrations and photographs of every stage of embryonic growth. The result is a scientifically accurate, yet comprehensible and deeply moving documentation of prenatal development, from the moment of conception to the moment of birth.
