We tend to assume that babies have little sensation or awareness before birth. Far from it! say these researchers into the world of the unborn child. “Emotions are chemistry in the blood,” says Lipton, “and the chemistry of emotions passes through that placental barrier just as well as nutrients.” And these experiences then create lifelong patterns of behavior, positive or otherwise. Findeisen points out, however, that it’s never too late to treat negative patterns learned before birth: “Prenatal psychology offers people an opportunity to remember what they came in with.” The implications of their findings are enormous. This program offers provocative listening for anyone who has ever spent time in the womb.
