Can stress and depression affect the baby's development & personality inside the womb and when he grows up?

Interesting question: How a baby develops is determined not just by genetic blueprint, but also environment inside the womb -- and outside it later.

In stressed moms (esp in 1st trimester), placentas make more corticotropin-releasing hormone that regulates length of pregnancy & fetal maturation. Relaxation needed. ...Read more
