This innovative film is about the profoundly important and sacred opportunity we have in bringing children into the world. Surprising and sometimes shocking, it challenges our beliefs about what infants are thinking and doing. It includes ground-breaking information on early development as well as appearances by the real experts: babies and their families.

A doctor of chiropractic by formal education, Debby Takikawa trained in the field of prenatal and infant psychology with Ray Castellino at the BEBA Clinic. She then went on to form a nonprofit clinic specializing in bonding and attachment therapy for infants and families. It was through this arm of the nonprofit that Debby made the documentary film, What Babies Want in 2004. She is also the author of the book CALMS: a Guide to Soothing Your Baby. Now Debby has turned her focus toward another passion, her organic farm, The Garden Of….., which she runs with her husband and extended family in California.
