The longing to love and be loved is a demand of the soul. Don’t let your behaviors get in the way of your happiness
“The heartsong is the song of the infant. Infants want to have a place in your heart. Infants want to be felt and guided and cared for, and never to be forsaken. It is a simple request and it’s primal to the sense of safety and love. Feeling safe and cared for ultimately develops the ability to care about others…”

What People are Saying About This Book:
I knew a book like “How Birth Influences Behavior” would soon be written. Our understanding of how formative and vital our earliest experiences are in shaping who we become has finally gained the momentum to get noticed by more than a few researchers and professionals and lay people. What I was completely surprised and excited by with Annie’s book is how beautifully articulated and comprehensive her work is. The field of prenatal and perinatal psychology is composed of a diversity of modalities. In this book, Dr. Brook has woven them together so masterfully, it creates a clear, and accessible read for those new to the field and yet is also equally satisfying for professionals well versed in birth trauma research and clinical practices that facilitate healing early trauma. Annie has truly created a work of art with this book and I am confident it will serve to change many lives! – Patricia Lucas
