The first three chapters of the textbook contained a lot of basic science. While it is important for nurses to understand basic science, the essential learning is to understand how this science impacts our patients’ health and life.

Figure 3-7 on page 55 depicts stages of prenatal development. Explain why the embryonic stage is the most sensitive time for birth defects from outside forces. Choose one maternal behavior and one environmental concern that may impact the risk of developing a birth defect during the embryonic period. 

You must use at least one other resource in addition to your textbook for each section. Citations and references must be provided in APA format.
