Meiosis is a process of cell division. There are several phases. During meiosis I, the cells go through four phases including prophase I, metaphase I, anaphase I, and telophase I. During prophase I, six stages occur including leptotene, zygotene, pachytene, dipotene, diakinesis and synchronous processes.

Then the process goes into meiosis II. Then cell division goes through the same named phases as meiosis I. The number of chromosomes changes during these cell divisions which is normal. Daughter cells are the new born cells.

The older cells are called mother cells. The daughter cells contain chromosomes. At the end of the meiosis II stage, the daughter cells may contain 12 chromosomes which means that there were six chromosomes at the end of meiosis I.
