The Psychology of Birth: An Introduction to Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology and the Impact of Birth on our Lives
In this ground-breaking documentary, noted experts show how a child’s personality and approach to life is shaped during the first nine months – from conception through birth. This is the best film to learn about what birth-related emotional/physical trauma is and why it is so common today. Included is brief live footage of an extraordinary, natural birth as well as intimate scenes from therapeutic sessions with several adults who have chosen to re-experience their original birth trauma as a means of healing and freeing themselves from the patterns it left in their lives. Featuring interviews with Dr. Thomas Verny, author of The Secret Life of the Unborn Child, and Dr. Marshall Klaus, neonatologist and author of Your Amazing Newborn, this video will help adult audiences of all ages and backgrounds understand the impact of our earliest experiences – from our time in the womb through the process of bonding to our mother.
