Inside the Womb

Jan 11, 2007 9:11pm

My children are more important to me than breathing.  And I treasure those moments when I first got to see them…months before they were born. In our case, ultrasounds allowed one to see a grainy, black-and-white image of a wriggling person-in-the-making.  In the last few years, the technology has gotten better and better; ultrasounds can now be done in "4-D," showing a fetus, moving, in great detail. Of course, when a woman is pregnant with twins, triplets or more, it gets more complicated.  The National Geographic Channel, with whom we have an occasional partnership, has extrapolated from these to do a special called "In the Womb: Multiples"–extrapolating from ultrasounds to create computer-generated views of life in the womb for twins, triplets and quadruplets.  The images are nice to look at.  You can see more at their web page HERE, and the show is on Sunday night, if your cable system runs National Geographic. I was asked to write a dotcom version; it’s  HERE.
If you have kids, I hope they’re as special to you as mine are to me.
