interesting quote

I read this in a book, and thought I would share it with you.

“… Our first experience of this life begins here on the first day. This won’t be recorded in language or be retrievable into rational thought. But the limbic brain remembers, and our body remembers. Here is when we begin to build our model of what to expect, of who will be there, of how we will be received, of how safe it it out there, of how we can make ourselves known and be comforted… Many Americans still view babies as inattentive and unaware.”

THEY ARE NOT UNAWARE!

What happens when a child is abused? Neglected? A mother consumes alcohol while pregnant?
