Deans, Carolyn L. – Early Child Development and Care, 2020

Scorza, Pamela; Monk, Catherine – ZERO TO THREE, 2019
The transition to parenting (Galinsky, 1987) can be a tumultuous time, particularly when parents have experienced traumatic and stressful life circumstances.

As U.S. infant mortality remains relatively unchanged and maternal mortality is rising, it is increasingly clear that service providers need to address many of the modifiable risks that determine birth outcomes prior to pregnancy.
