Yajnavalkya Smriti is definitely a Hindu code of conducts text. However, Yajnavalkya Smriti followed Charak Samhita for explaining embryo development principles. The narration is more of spiritual sense than scientific explanation from today’s angle.
Yajnavalkya Smriti (3, 72-81) states that during the sexual intercourse, the universal soul grasps and mixes the five elements and the soul remains in the form of fluid in first month. This is in contrast of soul is form less. In the second month the fluid changes into hard lump. In third month, the limbs and sense organs develop and the mass starts movement in the uterus. According to Yajnavalkya Smriti, the limbs become hard and blood is produced in the fourth month. Yajnavalkya Smriti explains that there is development of strength , color, nails and hairs in the sixth month. Arteries, sinews and blood vessels develop in seventh month with mind in consciousness. Skin, flesh and memory develop in the eighth month. The energy transition from mother to fetus starts in eighth month. That is why it is general belief that If child delivery is before or on the eighth month, child does not live long. Charak Samhita also vouches same theory on condition of embryo development in eighth month (Ch Samhita Sha A 4/24)
