At sixteen weeks the unborn child shies away from light. At twenty weeks there is a response to speech patterns. At twenty-five weeks the baby can kick in time to music. And at six months the unborn baby can understand the subtle shifts of its mother's emotions.

THE SECRET LIFE OF THE UNBORN CHILD presents for the first time the challenging results of two decades of painstaking international research into the earliest stages of life. Dr Verny's knowledge gives both mothers and fathers an unparalleled opportunity to help their unborn children. Now they can contribute actively- before and during birth- to giving their child happiness and security for the rest of his or her life.
