Faculty mentor: Elisabeth Conradt

In this study, we investigated whether maternal resilience can act as a moderator of the negative effects of maternal stress on newborn neurobehavioral outcomes. A sample of 162 pregnant women were assessed on their life stressors and resilience level. Their newborns were assessed according to the NICU Network Neurobehavioral Scale (NNNS). Mothers who reported more frequent episodic stress had newborns with lower levels of arousal and attention factors.
