1.0 out of 5 stars Haven't yet read it, but...., 22 Nov. 2012
This review is from: The Secret Life Of The Unborn Child: A remarkable and controversial look at life before birth (Paperback)
I am currently reading 'Life Before Birth' by Dr Arthur Janov which readers might care to take a look at. One review of 'The Secret Life...' was quite thought provoking, especially the comment that the author writes from the point of view of the child. This is actually quite profound. If we, for example, were able to return to our own early childhoods and feel it, we might discover some pretty ghastly truths about the environment that we were subjected to. All parents-to-be start off with good intentions I'm sure, but their own neuroses surely get the better of them eventually.

There might be a subtle truth in these two books. Not everyone should become a parent, which goes against the grain if you are God fearing and oppose abortion. It is true that pregnancy can be a difficult time, but children are remarkably resilient creatures, and lately I've become only too aware of the significance of breastfeeding in raising oxytocin levels in baby, and its power to quell pain and to normalise a situation that could get out of hand, like for example when the baby has its inoculations or falls over and bangs its head. After five minutes on the breast, it's as if it never happened.
