iParenting Media has just announced that Your Developing Baby has won a 2008 “Excellent Product” award. This visual tour of pregnancy through the wonders of ultrasound uses both 2-D and 3-D images, along with explanatory diagrams drawn by Peter Doubilet, MD, PhD, one of the authors. It was a joy to explore “the world within” with Dr. Doubilet and Dr. Benson, and a privilege to help them share their knowledge with others.
Two new videos have been added to the Your Developing Baby website showing two- and three-dimensional images of babies moving in the womb. Unless you’ve been spending time in an ultrasound room, you have never seen anything like this. (Just click on the “Video” button along the top bar.)
A new book coming out this spring will offer a detailed “tour” of pregnancy, from conception to birth, using 2D and 3D ultrasound images. Your knowledgeable tour guides are two radiology professors at Harvard Medical School, Peter M. Doubilet, M.D., Ph.D., and Carol B. Benson, M.D. I had the privilege of helping them write this book, and learned a great deal in the process, especially from the original diagrams — drawn by Dr. Doubilet — that make it easy to understand the ultrasound pictures. However, the striking 3D images of the face and body hardly need explaining! You can learn more about the book, called “Your Developing Baby,” and see some of the images here. A great Mother’s Day present for any mother-to-be.
