The Impact of Stress on Pregnancy

Presented by Laurel Wilson

September 18, 2012 • 1:30 pm (EDT) / 11:30 am (MDT)

The internal world of the mother and child is now known to have a strong influence on the behavior and personality of a child. Emerging science is focusing on this crucial prenatal and early postpartum period, as well as how the mother’s emotional experience can affect the development of her child.

This presentation will review how stress impacts a mother and baby during pregnancy and beyond, and what expectant parents can do to positively influence the long-term health of their child.

Join our webinar to learn about the unique connection between mother and baby, and how this crucial time during pregnancy can be best supported by healthcare professionals and educators.
