Prenatal Development Quiz! Trivia

Do you know what is prenatal development? Would you like to try this quiz? Prenatal development is the process of growth and development while in the mother's womb. It involves the formation of the embryo, through to the fetus's creation, to the eventual birth of the baby. The process is grouped into three stages: the pre-embryonic stage, the embryonic stage, and fertilization. This quiz will take you on a journey of a life from conception to birth. All the best.
