How the First Nine Months Can Shape the Rest of Your Life

TIME magazine recently ran a front-cover story highlighting a new wave of research exploring the impact that a fetus’ experience in the womb can have on later life outcomes.  Topping the list are chronic illnesses such as heart disease, cancer, obesity, diabetes, and mental illness.  The article stresses the importance of pre-conception and maternal health, while also pointing to the social and environmental context in which a pregnant woman finds herself.  Way to go, TIME for being a champion of the Life Course Perspective!
