Vol 39 No 5 – Parenting Begins Before Birth

Expectant parents start developing an emotional connection to their child during pregnancy as they begin to imagine what their child might be like, and what kind of parent they want to be.


Research on prenatal attachment suggests that pregnancy is an ideal time to support new parents in creating strong, positive, and nurturing relationships as they grow their families, with both short and long term benefits for parents and children. The articles in this issue of the Journal explore a variety of programs, approaches, and research initiatives pertaining to prenatal attachment and parental support.
