“Studied have shown that parent-child interaction is crucial for a child’s development. So we wanted to understand if there ware prenatal signs that might predict a parents behavior “
– said author Sarah Foley.
Foley also said that “Although we found a relationship between a mother’s attitude towards her baby during pregnancy and her later interactions , this link was only modest. This suggests it is likely to be a part of jigsaw rather than the big story..
The researchers said that increased awareness of the baby is also associated with the healthy behaviour among the women during pregnancy.
