Pt 1-5
Pt. 1. Creating a brand new person requires a complex biological process featuring a cast of microscopic characters. Viewers learn about fertilisation and how chromosomes determine the gender and physical attributes of a baby. We show how a single cell develops into an embryo and follow the rapidly changing stages of foetal development. Students also examine the importance of prenatal care, nutrition and a healthy prenatal environment. --pt. 2. For parents-to-be, the road from conception to birth is one filled with endless questions, changes, and decisions. In this program, viewers learn the early signs of pregnancy and the host of changes women will experience during their 9 month adventure. We explain common prenatal tests and what they can reveal about a baby's development. Students discover possible causes of infertility in both women and men, a well as common treatment options. We also offer guidelines for healthy prenatal care and making important birth choices. --pt. 3. Is it our DNA or our environment that makes us who we are? Learn about the structures and chemistry of DNA molecules. Students see how genes are passed from parents to offspring and how they determine the traits of an individual. Discover how environmental factors, inside or outside of the womb, can affect a child's health later in life. Viewers also learn about genetic disorders and how counselling and screening can provide health information before or during pregnancy. --pt. 4. Within the first few minutes of life, children start adapting to their new environment. In this program, we show how professionals use the Apgar test to assess a newborn's health and the significance of the first interaction between parent and newborn. We then follow the many physical, cognitive, and social changes that newborns experience on their journey through early infancy. We also explain the crucial role of sleep and nutrition in fostering development and offer guidelines for parents to provide the best possible care for their newborn. --pt. 5. A lot happens between the onset of labour and the first moments of a new life. This program explores the approaches to childbirth, including different methods and environments, as well as what to consider when creating a birth plan. Viewers learn about contractions, how to discern true labour from false labour, the three stages of labour, and the appropriate time to call a medical professional.
