The Effect of Maternal Depression on Birth Outcome and Child Obesity Risk: A Proposal to the National Institute of Health

Kumar, Sonal

There is a large body of research on the cognitive, emotional, and
behavioral outcomes of children of depressed mothers. However, little research has been done on whether maternal perinatal depression
affects child obesity. Thus, the proposed study will be critically relevant to the
current public health epidemic of obesity. The objective of the proposed study will
be to examine the correlation between maternal depression and child obesity risk.
