Evidence is emerging that inflammation during pregnancy is associated with a higher risk for disorders such as autism and schizophrenia in the developing fetus, disorders that sometimes appear much later in the individual's life. Dr. Hanna Stevens, Child Psychiatrist, Division Director of Child Psychiatry and Head of the Psychiatry and Early Neurobiological Development Lab (PENDL) at the Carver College of Medicine University of Iowa, discusses the relationship between material inflammation and later psychiatric outcomes.
"The reason for looking at this research and studying these processes is not to suggest individual women are supposed to figure out how to solve the problem. It is at a much higher level of figuring out how, as a society, we protect healthy brain development.." — Hanna Stevens
