The Secret Life of Babies

How Our Prebirth and Birth Experiences Shape Our World

A bold affirmation that we are sentient before conception and in the womb, The Secret Life of Babies reveals author Mia Kalef's groundbreaking findings: babies are able to remember their earliest experiences, this consciousness precedes the physical development of the brain itself, and medical interventions during birth—like forceps and Cesareans—can imprint our relationships with the world and disconnect us from our sustainable place in the ecosystem. Kalef provides a six-step protocol for detecting these individual imprints and taking reparative steps for physiological and emotional balance and release. This book offers us an articulate guide to a transformation that can restore our essential nature.

Praise for The Secret Life of Babies

"Dr. Kalef's book is a work of art. It is full of tales that ring true, that make sense, that are full of heart, and that smack of authenticity.... Kalef masterfully mixes personal and clinical experience with current literature throughout, saturating the reader with a sense of the continuity of our lives and the meaningfulness of our adult behavior."
--Michael D. Trout, The Journal of Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology and Health
