Ask the Expert: Stress, Depression, and Resilience

February 24, 2015

This webinar will present information on the impact and measurement of stress, depression, and resilience on pregnancy outcomes, especially for the populations served by Healthy Start sites. In this regard, the presentation will detail the context of contextual (toxic) stress and depression and elaborate on resilience as it mediates the toxic exposures for women before, during, and after pregnancy.

Participants will gain:

  • An understanding of the psychosocial and physiological aspects of stress and depression;
  • An understanding of how stress of all kinds impact the emotional and physical health of women during pregnancy; and
  • More awareness of the resilience practices that women employ to mediate the ill-effects of stress.
