Psychoanalysis for newborns? The idea seems shocking - and revolutionary. Myriam Szejer practices for more than twenty years in the maternity ward of a hospital in Clamart, France. She "listens" babies and their mothers. It is not true that babies "do not understand anything." They are talking beings since their conception, and "live in language" as they store in their unconscious everything they are told immediately after birth. "If Babies Could Speak" is a book about the great therapeutic and preventive significance of psychoanalysis during infancy, intended for both experts and inquisitive readers. And of course, for expectant mothers.
