A Unique You! Never to be repeated

And you’re off! At the moment of fertilisation, 23 chromosomes from each of your parents combine to make you: a unique individual human being, never to be replicated. Almost everything about you is coded in your
DNA. You just need to grow and develop for the next 9 months.

At 20 weeks, half way through this fascinating journey, as the brain and nerve endings continue to develop, you might experiment with your sense of touch. There are lots of documented evidence of babies reacting to sounds and music from this stage on.
