Verny's many books (8) including the international best seller, The Secret Life of the Unborn Child now published in 26 countries, professional publications (46) and founding of the PPPANA and the Pre- and Perinatal Journal, have established him as one of the world's leading authorities on the effect of the prenatal and early postnatal environment on personality development.
