Pregnancy and Depression

Did you know …..

that a recent research undertaken at the Universities of Cardiff and Bristol (UK) has shown that when a mother suffers from Depression during pregnancy influences the child’s future mental balance ?

They studied a sample of 120 young women. Children were studied at birth, at 4, 11 and 16 years old. That research found that there was more children with antisocial behavior and a depressive mother during pregnancy than in the rest of the population of those ages.
