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. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=stngBN4hp14&feature=share
Enjoy, and would love to hear your thoughts!
