Ina May Gaskin,
This is an excellent National Geographic documentary. It follows the development of a human girl all the way from conception to birth. It is clear and informative, and presents the subject matter in an easy to follow manner.
There is real footage of 4-D scans of the womb - the latest in scanning technology, which makes for much clearer images of the foetus - interspersed with computer generated images of the same.
The only bad point to note (and the reason I only gave 7/10), is that the second part is mostly a repeat of the first part. That is, if you have two parts, the first part being 50mins and the second part 47mins, then my advice is to play the second part from 28:00 on, as ALL of the first 28 minutes is contained in the first part.
