Mother-Baby Bond: The Biology of Love

Of all the attributes that define human beings, our need to form strong emotional attachments to each other may be the most profound. And of these attachments, the bond between a mother and her infant is the most fundamental. It is a human being's first attachment, a powerful bond that is formative in every imaginable way.

What is it that makes a baby irresistible and a mother's love instinctual? Dr. Deepak Chopra brings his insight on the biological aspects of love and the budding relationship between mother and baby from conception to birth. The bond between a mother and her child has been recognized and celebrated as uniquely powerful and beautiful for centuries. Today we have new insights into exactly how this extraordinary relationship is mediated through blood and hormones, milk and antibodies, smiles and tears—and much more that we are just beginning to understand.
