Prenatal depression effects on the fetus and neonate

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter shows that maternal depression has a negative effect on infant behaviour and physiology, even during the prenatal period. Prenatal depression effects include excessive activity in the fetus and unresponsive behaviour, low activity levels, indeterminate sleep, low vagal tone, and atypical patterns of frontal electroencephalography activation in the newborn. The chapter also highlights the need for early identification and intervention for prenatal depression.
