5.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating journey May 13, 2007
This documentary follows the multiple pregnancies of three different women, from conception to shortly after the birth. Rachel (the only one who isn't a first-time mother) is having fraternal twins (a boy and a girl), Jennifer is having triplets (two identical boys plus one fraternal brother who was conceived on a different day), and Julie is having identical quads (girls). All three of these sets of multiples were conceived naturally, even Julie's (the odds of having naturally-conceived identical quads are one in eight million!). Using cutting-edge 4-D technology, we're able to get a fascinating look at just what goes on in the womb during these gestational periods. Not only do we get to see what the embryos/fetuses look like as they develop, but we also get to see the kinds of interactions they have with one another, interactions that vary from up-close and personal (if they're together in the same amnion and chorion, no barriers between them) to only able to feel one another through membranes if they're in separate amnions and chorions.

This documentary is loaded with just about everything you ever might have wanted to know about multiple pregnancies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing April 5, 2007
I had to watch this movie for a human development course in college. It is the most amazing thing to see actual footage of multiples growing in the womb. I also learned a lot about multiples that I did not previously know. Very good watch! Definitely reccomended.

I am pregnant with multiples and wanted an inside out look of what my babies and body are experiencing. Great teaching video on the basics of multiple births. Would be appropriate for helping answer questions that older siblings have (age 13 and up, as conception by male/female intercourse is briefly discussed).

5.0 out of 5 stars fascinating! August 7, 2007
By BBB
this documentary gives in-depth perspective of the development of multiples in the womb - and it's done with amazing material. Real life echoes, shown in multiple dimensions, and fascinating views of the inside world of the womb. You can almost imagine what it's like in there. Although many knowledgable facts are told, it's all brought in a very comprehensive way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible! March 21, 2009
I watched this video 3 times in a row as I am expecting twins this September. I was in aww! Love it. I've learned so much. Even our 5 year old requests to watch it. My dear husband has yet to see it but when he does, I know he will be as impressed as I. Thank you!

One of my best friends found out she was having twins, so I sent her this video.
She was absolutely thrilled by everything she saw and learned in this documentary.

If you know anyone about to be having twins or triplets, this makes a very thoughtful gift, as they will learn what is happening inside their own body.
