Pregnancy is a period of great physiological and emotional change in a woman’s life. Although pregnancy is often perceived as a happy period, it is also a time of increased emotional vulnerability. Many pregnant women experience symptoms of stress and anxiety and some even develop depression. Laura Bleker provides insight into the underlying biological mechanisms that link prenatal exposure to maternal depression to an altered neurodevelopmental phenotype, and assesses whether a psychological intervention for depression during pregnancy can ameliorate neurobiological and behavioural outcomes in children.
