When it was first published fifty years ago, Lennart Nilsson’s A Child is Born broke astonishing new ground, offering an unprecedented glimpse of life inside the womb. Packed with breathtaking photographs, this awesome journey from fertilization to birth is a timeless masterpiece. This new edition is updated by professor Lars Hamberger and midwife Gudrun Abascal. The new journalistic photos are taken by Linda Forsell. The book has been translated into more than 20 languages since its first publication.
