Resilience—the personal resources an individual has to effectively deal with difficult challenges—may be key in mitigating impacts of stress during pregnancy and postpartum depression.
 
A new study led by researchers at the University of Granada, Spain looked at resilience with psychological states alongside hair cortisol concentrations to evaluate stress levels in women throughout pregnancy. They found that resilience had “protective effects” on mothers and their embryos/fetuses during pregnancy and resulted in lower rates of postpartum depression. 
 
The research is the first to evaluate the effects of resilience on maternal and fetal health and highlights its potential advantages.
