Margaret Shaw explores how babies can be welcomed onto this earth with warmth, love, insight, joy, rhythm, structure and sensitive care. This helps lay healthy physical, psychological and spiritual foundations for life. The book follows the incarnating process of the child, starting before conception through the first three years of the family up to the third birthday.
