Abstract :

New Parenting Can Change Your World powerfully advocates for babies’ well-being and healthy development. The book proclaims that birth is an extremely impactful experience that shapes humans in significant ways and thus shapes culture. One of the principal goals of the book is to help parents and others who spend time with babies or are considering having a baby “understand how to support their babies to heal from many (normal) challenges of prenatal life and birth” (Terry, 2022, p. 8). Terry guides the reader through understanding this significance through examples and provides information about how to relate with babies and the myriad of challenging experiences of their prenatal life and birth, which they seek to express.
