This timely and heart-opening film brings together ground-breaking information about what babies truly are, what they know, and how we can support them to be their best as they develop and grow. The experiences we have at our births sets up our perceptive neurology and influences the way we perceive the events of our lives. These early interactions shape our human ability to learn, to trust, and to develop relationships as we grow older.
The film is alive with captivating stories and remarkable personal experiences of infants, children, and adults. It is warmly narrated by Noah Wyle who, with his wife Tracy, shares with us their passion for deeper understanding and awareness of what a baby truly is. What Babies Want looks into cutting-edge science, ancient cultures and traditional customs in search of ways to keep our children's spirits intact.
Research is now showing us that our society is a product of how we welcome and raise our children. When babies are welcomed with love and warmth and given the immediate opportunity to bond with parents, they develop minds that are coherent and flexible, ready in turn to make compassionate and meaningful connections with others as they grow. As we learn how early relationships shape the structure and function of the brain, we are also gaining a new appreciation of the wisdom of ancient cultures that understood the importance of welcoming children before, during and after the moment of birth.
