Fetal Observable movement system FOMS






My latest research concerns fetal development in relation to stress and depression as well as early mother infant interaction. My work on fetal movements ( see Reissland & Kisilevsky eds, 2106) has potential for applications in healthcare settings informing parents about fetal abilities and effects of health behaviours on fetal wellbeing.

Current research projects concern: 

       pre-natal development in relation to maternal stress and depression

      the effects of smoking on prenatal and postnatal attachment

      precursors of language development

      Laterality and stress

       Emotional intelligence


Supervision: I supervise PhD candidates in the area of early maternal-infant interaction and fetal development.
