Of the body's major systems only the reproductive organs and structures are different in men and women. There is no greater miracle on the planet than the creation of a new life. Join Dr. Mark Reisman as he takes you through each stage of this miracle, from the genetic basis of life, to the development of sex organs, to the formation of sex cells, to conception, to the emergence of the embryo, to the growth sequence of the fetus, and finally to the birth of a new human life.
