Does the prenatal environment contribute to subsequent behavioural problems in childhood? This talk critically explores biologically plausible mechanisms and presents epidemiological studies examining evidence for in-utero programming of mental health. Examples are drawn from work on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) symptoms, and obesity. Further, I present my latest research endeavours. The aim is to investigate whether factors related to maternal lifestyle during pregnancy are causal and thus have public health significance.

This talk is part of the Obstetrics & Gynaecology series.
