Part One - Boys and Girls, Men and Women (7:17)
How boys’ and girls’ bodies are different, how they develop and grow and how they start producing sperm and eggs.
All animals make babies – and people do it too! There may be a lot of funny stories about where babies come from, but the true story takes us back to basics – how boys’ and girls’ bodies are different, how they develop and grow and how they start producing sperm and eggs.
Part Two - Making a Baby (5:29)
You only need one sperm and one egg to make a baby, but how do they get together?
You only need one sperm and one egg to make a baby, but how do they get together? We find out a little about having sex and then the race is on for a sperm to find and fertilise an egg! While a fertilised egg can make a baby, sometimes it can make two babies, or even more. Some parents can’t make babies by having sex so they need help from a doctor who can use IVF, sperm or egg donation to get that sperm and egg together so it can grow – just like other babies.
Part THREE - How the baby grows (9:01)
A fertilised egg doesn’t become a baby overnight, it takes nine months to become a brand new human being!
A fertilised egg doesn’t become a baby overnight. We learn how the embryo gets the food and oxygen it needs, how its brain and body develop and how, over the course of nine months, it becomes a brand new human being! From birth to breathing and breastfeeding, the story of how babies are made is truly amazing!
