This short video, created by the iFIND project, shows a 24-second scan of a 20-week-old baby - who can be seen stretching, fiddling with the umbilical cord and turning its neck.
Using algorithms, magnetic fields and radio waves, the new-style scan creates extra-high quality moving footage. The entire womb is captured so parents - and doctors - have a really clear idea of what exactly baby is up to.
The film has been given to video parenting site ChannelMum.com to share with pregnant mums around the world.Cathy Ranson, editor of ChannelMum.com said: 'Scans are amazing as they help mums, dads and even other family members bond with their baby.
'There is nothing quite as emotional as seeing your unborn child moving inside you, and these MRI scans are taking images to the next level. They are truly breathtaking.'
Changing the debate?
The video shows a baby at 20 weeks - 4 weeks before the legal limit for most abortions. The Daily Mail reports: "The incredible detail reveals just how fully formed a foetus is at 20 weeks."
