It all starts in the womb


The mother’s ability to respond appropriately to the infant’s communicative signals and her emotional sensitivity are key factors in the child’s cognitive and socio-emotional development. Research is showing that there are important associations between maternal mood and infant temperament up to one year of age.

This peri-natal mental health project is born form the collaboration between Babybrains  and the Essex BabyLab. Together, we want to understand how becoming a parent changes a woman’s brain and mind and how her mood and experiences influence her child’s development. We also want to offer the right peri-natal support so that each child can have the best possible start in life.
