This work is based on 30 years of research and observation by the author, a linguist specializing in multiculturalism. The author examines the concept that prenatal babies not only learn, communicate and respond to outside forces, but that individual personality is formed while still in the womb. The book reviews a large amount of both medical and cultural evidence to support this view, and also provides a survey of how the prenatal experience is treated in a variety of different cultures. Based on this background, and with sources from medical journals, through to discussions of folklore, fertility rites, enculturation, the author spells out the conclusions reached from clearly explained empirical evidence of the many different societies. She also offers practical suggestions for optimal prenatal care. This work is intended for parents-to-be, psychologists, linguists, paediatricians and anthropologists. In addition, social workers, legislators and anyone working with children and families from diverse cultural backgrounds should find it instructive.
