From the moment of conception, every human embryo embarks on an incredible nine-month journey of development.

Revolutionary 3-D and 4-D imagery sheds light on the delicate, dark world of a fetus as never before and follows a rare fetoscope operation, performed in utero with the hope of correcting life-threatening complications before birth.

I thought it would be more how twins/ multiples interact in womb and otherwise. Instead, Nat Geo very thoroughly describe from beginning to delivery. *** Spoiler Alert*** Graphic footage of childbirth shows how multiples are delivered C-Section and vaginally. Good info but I wasn't anticipating the birthing. Yikes!

A fascinating topic, though dryly narrated. Mentions hormonal changes in the mother's body, but totally neglects sex during pregnancy and how hormones related to such acts affect the developing child.

Professionally presented by National Geographic - This is really quite an interesting documentary.

Using the latest visual technology for our benefit, the viewer is given a close-up look at the development of twins and triplets as they mature and grow inside the womb.

This documentary also points out some of the risks and dangers that may (and sometimes do) occur with pregnancies of this sort.

All-in-all - This documentary (with its informative narration) takes on a very educational approach when it comes to its fascinating subject matter.

Yep. It's a pretty simple story. Indeed.

And it's all about where you and I come from.

It's the place where sperm meets egg and conception occurs.

But, when the embryo splits and multiples begin to develop in the womb - Now, that's quite a different story to tell.

Through the wonder of 4-D ultrasound technology and revolutionary new fetal imaging techniques (watch video), the viewer is shown a surprisingly vivid window that looks into the womb and at human reproduction.

This remarkable "Multiples" documentary, presented by National Geographic, closely follows (month-by-month) 3 pregnancies (one of twins, one of triplets and, lastly, quadruplets). And as the story of conception unfolds, we learn to better understand the risks and dangers involved in pregnancies such as these.

*Note* - This documentary may not be suitable for all audiences, as one of its chapters presents very graphic images of "real-life" conjoined twins.

Really cool movie - Ioved the views in 3D of a fetus in the womb. Never seen anything quite like it before. The information wasnt groundbreaking but the technology sure is.
