From a single-celled human to a human with a beating heart, brain waves, fingers, and toes, the miracle of human life developing in the womb is portrayed in stunning detail like never before in Live Action’s newly-released video, “Baby Olivia.”

Created by Live Action with the support of world class visual artists along with medical experts including accredited OB-GYNs, “Baby Olivia” is the world’s most realistic and medically accurate animated representation of a child developing in her mother’s womb. The computer-generated 3D animation uses motion capture technology of real human movement, allowing this video to reveal the undeniable humanity of preborn children.

In the video, we see Olivia’s journey from her very beginning at the moment of fertilization, and follow along to her first heartbeat 22 days later. We see her bouncing around in the womb at 11 weeks — before her mother can even feel her movements! — and responding to light at 27 weeks. Then, we see her preparing for birth, after which she will gain a whole new set of experiences in the world outside the womb.
