Following her breakthrough book, The Secret Life of Babies, Dr Mia Kalef now deepens her exploration of human sentience before conception and during birth. This groundbreaking guide has been described as, "...required reading for all health professionals, especially those involved in childbirth and mental health."
Whether you aim to understand your baby's messages, are wishing to detect and heal your experiences from your time in the womb and at birth, are a health professional, or in a position of care for another, this book offers a courageous and clear guide for decoding and healing some of society's hardest to reach issues: Depression, anxiety, violence, addiction, suicide, as well as other subtler and more pervasive adult challenges like low self-esteem, feelings of exclusion, and fears of intimacy. It's Never Too Late also addressees common challenges parents and their babies encounter. Rarely discussed issues like how to heal after challenging births, hospital interventions, and what to do when babies are inconsolable, experiencing movement or postural challenges, or having trouble making eye contact, are just some of the issues this book explores.
With a detailed and fascinating journey through conception, the early stages of embryonic growth, birth, and the myriad of ways human love and development get interrupted at these sensitive times, you will find gentle and effective ways to address the roots of personal and societal challenges. With an accessible and and easy to
implement approach, this book challenges our long-held assumptions that prebirth and birth are forgotten, and offers a compassionate path back to experiencing the richness of our human lives.
"This is is a must read for any one who was born. We do remember birth, and these memories
have long term consequences for who we become. I highly recommend It's Never Too Late to
anyone working with families before stepping into the energy field of another, especially a
pregnant, birthing, postpartum mother who is so vulnerable to the energetics around her."
-- Barbara Essman, MA, Director/Owner of The Sacred Birthing School on Kauai
"At last, clinicians and parents have a book of authoritative knowledge that provides a solid
foundation for working with the effects of prenatal imprinting. Mia Kalef brings together a
clear understanding and set of skills for anyone working in this field and concerned about the
lifelong mental and physical health of their smallest and biggest clients. We must all be
concerned! Her case studies especially ground the material in the living reality of the treatment room and the heart. This book is an outstanding bridge to help heal all of us with our own early narrative and that of others."
-- Michael Shea, PhD, author of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy Volumes 1-5
