Is it correct to speak of embryonic development until the ninth month?

By Andrea Rodrigo.
Last Update: 03/06/2017

It is not totally correct, because from week 8 of embryonic evolution, the embryo becomes called a fetus and, therefore, it is more correct to speak of fetal development from week 8 of gestation until birth.

Suggested for you: In vitro embryo culture and development.
