What is a zygote

Where do a baby's chromosomes come from?

How can IVF help infertile couples?

Does science sometimes seem dry and boring? Why do we need to learn about it? Why Science Matters demonstrates how the science we learn at school is Important in every aspect of our everyday lives. Using case studies and investigations, the series describes the development of science and technologies that can improve our lives-or lead to new scientific challenges and controversies.

In Pregnancy and Birth, we find out about the wonders and risks of reproduction. Learn about natural conception, how reproductive technology can help infertile couples, how an embryo develops in the womb, and how good antenatal care and fetal surgery can save the lives of mothers and babies. See how alcohol and other substances can damage a growing baby, and consider if it is ethically correct to diagnose genetic diseases before birth.
