Embryos and fetuses

  • Embryo is what you call the baby from the zygote till it is two moths into the growth
  • When the embryo is growing some of the cells specialise and form tissue


  • When the vital organs have formed, after two months the baby is called a fetus.
  • A fetus will eventually resemble a baby
  • a baby will be called a fetus till birth
