      We know lots about the basics of an unborn baby … how it controls its growth, how it pumps blood around its body. There are still bits to discover though… the fine detail of how it all works.

      There is lots still to discover about what happens to the unborn baby when things in its environment change … its supply of food, exposure to stress.

      I want to know more about how the baby adapts to this sort of thing and what it means for it in later life (its health).
