Brief description Recent research shows that maternal anxiety in pregnancy is associated with emotional and behaviour problems in childhood. This project examines the impact of anxiety during pregnancy on infant capacity to regulate behaviour, sleep and physiological response to stress and also considers possible genetic contributions. Findings address the earliest origins of mood and behaviour disorders in children and will inform evidence-based interventions during the perinatal period.
