What was your life like before you were born?
How We Become is a timely, impactful, and accessible answer to the ultimate question: “How did I become me and where do I come from?” Two of Norway’s leading pregnancy and maternity experts take you on the gripping and surprising journey of how we start life. Week by remarkable week.
What does everyday life look like, living in a womb? Can we remember anything from our time there? When do we start to hear sounds? Do we form a relationship to others before we’re born? How do we experience our own birth?
Take a sneak peak into the womb and follow how we develop from one tiny cell into a unique, screaming baby made up of thousands of billions of cells. Lively illustrations and digestible chapters create a delightful pace to this mind-expanding journey. How We Become combines research and illuminating history, with a refreshing voice that captivates you.
