May 5, 2010— -- The bond between mother and child has always been touted as one of the most important in nature. Now, with a series of images and videos from the team at TheVisualMD and Deepak Chopra, we're looking at that bond as never before,

These images reveal the bond between mother and child from the moment of conception through the first year of life. They show how baby and mother grow in harmony with each other, and how a mother's smell and image can shape the way her baby views the world.

For today's Conversation, Deepak Chopra stopped by the newsroom to chat with Diane Sawyer about this project, and what it can teach us about human emotions. Find out how a mother's touch or smell can change the way her child develops, and how a mother's experiences can have biological consequences for her baby. Learn what you can do as a mother to help your child develop in the best possible way.

We will offer more of Deepak Chopra's interview with Diane Sawyer in tomorrow's Conversation, so make sure to tune in.
