Babies may Benefit from Pre-Birth Stress

12th February, 2018: Researchers from the University of California, Davis conducted research on prairie voles, to discover that that prenatal stress promotes developmental plasticity in babies, making them especially likely to benefit from good parenting. At the same time, it may also cause them suffer from negligent care as well.

“It looks like prenatal stress can be good for us if we are lucky enough to have a supportive environment postnatally,” said Sarah Hartman, researcher at UC Davis.

“Most notably, our research challenges the prevailing view that prenatal stress undermines children’s health and development,” said Jay Belsky, Professor of human development.

The results are published in the journal Psychological Science. The findings could relieve anxiety for women who experience temporary stressful situations during pregnancy.

“Prenatal stress might actually promote child well-being when children are reared in supportive environments,” Belsky said.
