Abstract:

Foetal programming refers to changes in the environment in utero during specific critical or sensitive periods and the long-term effect on the child. Maternal stress and anxiety during pregnancy represents an important aspect of the intrauterine environment and can alter the development of the foetus and child and can influence many, if not all, developmental outcomes. The presentation will explain what foetal programming is, why it matters and discuss how stress impacts it. It will discuss the importance of building therapeutic relationships with clients and their families. It will conclude with the tools and strategies to equip professionals who work with women, children and their families to better support them in pregnancy and the first three years of life.
