Great TED Talk on what happens in the womb!!

Hi all,
I know I've recommended the book Origins, by Annie Murphy Paul, which details a lot of studies on the importance of the 9 months in the womb on who we become as people. I found a link today to a 17-minute Ted Talk by her where she highlights a few stories from the book as well as offers a few newer tidbits. If you enjoy this, I highly recommend the book! The counselor at my RE recommends it especially to anyone carrying donor egg/embies, but it's intended for all pregnant women.

Enjoy, and would love to hear your thoughts!
