Baby & Mother Relations


When a mom feels depressed, her baby's cells might feel it, too.

An estimated 1 in 9 women experience symptoms of postpartum depression. These symptoms—including mood swings, fatigue, and a reduced interest in activities—can make it difficult for mothers to bond with their newborns.

Early relationships between mothers and their infants can influence health across the lifespan, for better or worse. For example, adults who report more household dysfunction and abuse during their childhood are more likely to suffer disease as adults. Those with healthy and supportive relationships during early life are better at handling stress and regulating their emotions.
