My interest is on thought and how it affects human behavior. Until recently, I had no idea that The Secret Life of the Unborn Child was the same book that my wife read a little over 23 years ago. I think it is a great read and recommend it to those who plan on having children. While the authors are clear that many of their thoughts are based on unproven speculation and theory, the core of the book makes sense and certainly did not negatively impact our bonding with our son.
We know now that the unborn child thinks, feels and hears. Smoking, drinking, drugs, food, sounds and emotions of the mother all affect the health and well-being of the unborn child. The mother and child share experiences, stress, anxiety, peace, harmony and joy. Her physiological by-products of those experiences are communicated across the placental barrier. The child hears the father and is soothed or alarmed by the tone and volume of that communication as well as the way the mother processes her responses.
The authors put forth serious theories that may or may not actually have a positive or negative affect on the roots of the way a child develops, perceives life, learns, bonds, socializes and lives his or her life.
Up-to-date books of this nature should be read and studied in school to teach people the importance of their habits and actions on the unborn child and toddlers. This book is especially useful to those planning a family, deciding on the doctor, and birthing atmosphere and those who are interested in child development and health.
