PTSD VA Screengrab2

CRE in Newborn Medicine Associate investigator Dr Karli Treyvaud discusses research examining post-traumatic stress symptoms of mothers and fathers across the first two years after the very preterm birth of their child. Mothers and fathers completed questionnaires at three time points, and change in post-traumatic stress symptoms were accessed over time as well as whether medical or social risk factors were associated with symptoms. Implications for future predictive research and clinical support are also discussed.
