Reviews for Human Life Before Birth, Second Edition

From the development of early organs to the basic architecture of the cell, this book gives readers everything they need to learn about how human development progresses in utero. This edition highlights interesting perspectives on STIs as well as cultural impacts on human development and childbirth. Among the several noteworthy aspects are the study questions following each chapter which span many taxonomical levels ranging from simple remembering to critical thinking. - Kathleen E Salmeron, PhD(University of Kentucky College of Medicine)
