Maternal Stress & Unborn Babies Print
Sheena Macrae, co-editor of Adoption Parenting sent us a link to an article entitled "Babies in womb feel mothers’ anxiety at only four months." She writes, "I think this is a very useful piece of research for our adopted children. I presume that a woman who knows she may be carrying an overquota child is stressed, I assume that a woman carrying a child and who knows that child won’t have permission to be born is stressed, a woman living in poverty is stressed, a woman living in abusive marriage is stressed, an unmarried mother is stressed... Etc. Therefore her child according to this article will be stressed…the stress hormones basically preparing the baby for reception into a hostile world. These are the children so many of us are parenting."
