Happy New Year! We are not even three weeks into January, and it promises to be a busy year. At the top of the list is the study from Cantarutti and colleagues which observed that depression in itself, rather than antidepressant medication, might increase risk for preterm birth and low birth weight.
There are also several articles looking at the effects of early childhood adversity in the mother and how this experience can lead to worse pregnancy outcomes and parenting problems.
