Did you all see this great article by Jerry Large from the Seattle Times?
This symposium was powerful, and was referenced yesterday at the Perinatal Mood Disorder conference stakeholders meeting.
The video referenced in the article is here – 2.5 minutes long:
Children are so in tune with their moms – what happens if mom just can’t respond? Clearly, the baby experiences stress and dismay. The key appears to be recovery – if mom (or dad) can come back and engage with the child again, then the baby can resolve the feelings. If not, the baby is left stuck in those negative emotions, which over time, can take its toll.
