Studies in experimental animals have clearly demonstrated that independent of the nutrition or genetics factors, alcohol is a potent teratogen, a substance that can harm a fetus, and can interfere with fetal development and cause birth :// Pet Birth Defect Awareness Day is September Birth defects in your new puppy or kitten can involve any organ system and any part of the body. Some abnormalities may be minor and resolve as the animal matures, while others can prevent normal growth and development, inhibit optimal functioning, and even cause premature :// Introduction to human embryology -- Human reproduction -- The first week of human development -- The second week of human development -- The third week of human development -- Human development during weeks four to eight -- Fetal period: ninth week to birth -- Placenta and fetal membranes -- Body cavities and mesenteries -- Pharyngeal apparatus -- Respiratory system -- Alimentary or digestive The benefit of this increased knowledge to children affected with birth defects and to their parents is immeasurable since appropriate recurrence risk counseling and information regarding prognosis are possible only in those situations where a definitive diagnosis can be made and/or the developmental pathology is ://
