I want to call her Stacey is a story about life, beauty and broken relationships.
The short animation artistically and accurately captures the emotions and developments in utero.
We wanted this film to be a peice of art, yet much time and effort was invested in portraying Stacey’s development.
Months were spent looking through books, watching footage from inside the womb and searching online articles for referenced images and material.
We found great information from a DVD The Biology of Prenatal Development put out by The Endowment for Human Development.
We are amazed by the beauty of the developing child and feel it is important to list a few interesting points.
The following are measured by using fertilization age, not gestational age.
NB: There are two ways of determining the age of the unborn.
Heart starts beating
Arm and leg buds present.
Subtle movement appears.

Fetal period begins.
Sighs, bends and stretches.
Opens and closes mouth.
Can move tongue.
Fingernails and toenails start growing
Fingerprints are present
Most organs and tissues are present; they will continue to grow and strengthen.
Face can pull expressions
Gender can be identified.
Crown-heel length 19.5 cm
Week 21 – 22

I want to call her Stacey was met with a very warm reception at the Cherish Life Conference.
I would like to say a big Thank You to Teresa Martin and event organisers for giving us this great oportunity to launch the film.
A story never before told, I want to call her Stacey follows the perspective of an unborn child developing in the womb.
From the first sparks of her existence, all the joys of her young life are threatened by growing tension between her parents.
Stacey’s journey is helplessly influenced by the choices and actions of others.
