PSI2015-63494-P: PERINATAL STRESS FROM THE CONCEPTION TO ONE YEAR OF LIFE
* Check the influence of the psychological state of the pregnant woman throughout her pregnancy.
* Check the hormonal implications of the stress of pregnant women in the process of pregnancy and postpartum.
* Validate different psychological stresses of pregnancy and postpartum.
* Psychological intervention in pregnant women to control their stress and the consequences derived from it.
* Evaluation of the baby's neurodevelopment in relation to the stress experienced by the mother.
• Neurodevelopment batteries
• Cortisol in the Hair
• Physiological parameters of pregnancy of both mother and fetus
Perinatal Stress affects each woman and her baby differently (even though she is not yet born).
For this reason, we are currently investigating how stress can affect the course of pregnancy, the mother and the fetus. Our approach to the problem is carried out from different perspectives:
Psychology: Psychological and Neuropsychological Evaluation
Biology: Cortisol levels in hair.
Fetal Medicine: Ultrasound Data
Gynecology and Obstetrics: Routine Health Checks
Immunology: Blood samples
Biochemistry: Peripheral blood analytics
Hemogram and Coagulation: Blood
Childbirth: Taking variables from this important event
Postpartum: Psychological alterations
Baby Development: Neuropsychological Evaluation
We are a group of professionals belonging to disciplines of the Health Sciences and Psychology highly concerned with well-being.
Stress during pregnancy can also have consequences on the fetus as:
• Low birth weight
In the medium term, this stress can cause the baby to have:
• Lower levels of cognitive development
• Lower engine development levels
Finally, in the long run, the stress experienced in pregnancy can lead to adulthood with:
• Higher levels of stress
• Increased risk of psychological distress
For this, we performed an evaluation of the neurodevelopment of their babies. This part of the research is very important because it allows us to interact with your baby and obtain information about his level of development in order to know if it is optimal for his age or if there is a problem. At the end of each evaluation, we will send you a report containing the results of your child's development and a series of recommendations to promote your child's well-being.
