During pregnancy the baby is growing in the mother’s womb. The baby grows rapidly – both developing the various parts of its body but also the brain. The foetus’s development is deeply related to the mother – and therefore ensuring a healthy baby requires the mother to focus on what she does. During this time the baby is both very sensitive to both what the mother eats and drinks but also the mother’s emotions. Stress that the mother faces can impact on the health of the infant.
