Tune in for the final installment of 9 Months That Made You.

Told through a series of personal stories that introduce viewers to people born with surprising and unexpected differences, 9 Months That Made You, explores just how complex the human gestational process truly is. 9 Months That Made You concludes Wednesday, July 13, 2016 at 10 pm on WXXI-TV. 

With the help of CGI, 9 Months That Made You, goes inside the womb to re-create the growth process of a fetus and explains how genetics can cause fascinating and unexpected mutations. In the initial episode, “The First 8 Weeks,” for example, viewers meet a family in Brazil whose multi-generational genetic mutation has caused half of them to grow six digits on each hand. Later, the series visits professional surfer Laird Hamilton, whose extreme sense of fearlessness is actually a genetic trait he may have passed on to his children.
