Embryological & fetal development illustration series beginning at 6 weeks of gestational age & progressing through to final 40th week of pregnancy. At each week a size comparison is offered to a commonly seen fruit or vegetable, to better understand the size of the unseen baby. Illustrations were prepared for the Lamaze Website as a tool for pregnant mothers for health promotion during pregnancy. I've subsequently prepared an animation which is viewable on my Website with in-depth information.
