Horizon explores the secrets of what makes a long, healthy and happy life. It turns out that a time you can’t remember – the nine months you spend in the womb – could have more lasting effects on you today than your lifestyle or genes.

It is one of the most powerful and provocative new ideas in human science, and it was pioneered by a British scientist, Professor David Barker. His theory has inspired a field of study that is revealing how our time in the womb could affect your health, personality, and even the lives of your children.

    Excellent documentary.  Very though-provoking but at the same time so absolutely logical, why did we not see this before?

    Well, that’s clever; having established the importance of the placenta – they BURY it! We incinerate it. The mother is supposed to eat it for a) replenishment of lost nutrients and b) bonding with the baby. It is established in nature and now confirmed that women who eat their placentas, ‘fall in love’ faster and deeper with their babies. Also prevents ‘baby blues’.

      a) replenishment of lost nutrients – try an apple.
      b) bonding with the baby – try a cuddle.

      “now confirmed that women who eat their placentas, ‘fall in love’
      faster and deeper with their babies”. Love has a measurable depth?

      Quiet, hippy.

    Centre for The Study of Social Change? We already know that biomimicry of hormones and chemicals produce behaviourial changes. Bisphenol A influencing suppression of male attributes both in the womb and beyond. To an increasing extent, our behaviour is being modified through additives to our food, water and air. The PTB will not be content until they have completely engineered a mass cloned or replicated placenta. Humans will be born made to measure, fit for purpose and with a designated utility span as a substitute for ‘life’.
