    Neurosci Biobehav Rev 29:237-58. 2005
    ..The magnitude of the long-term effects of antenatal maternal anxiety/stress on the child is substantial. Programs to reduce maternal stress in pregnancy are therefore warranted...
  2. ncbi request reprint Measuring the multidimensional self-concept and global self-worth of 6- to 8-year-olds
    Bea R H Van den Bergh
    Population and Family Study Centre Brussels, Belgium
    J Genet Psychol 164:201-25. 2003
    ..Young children seem to have an ability to verbalize concepts of their global self-worth that can be tapped by self-report measures...
  3. ncbi request reprint High antenatal maternal anxiety is related to impulsivity during performance on cognitive tasks in 14- and 15-year-olds
    Bea R H Van den Bergh
    Department of Psychology, Catholic University Leuven, Tiensestraat 102, 3000 Leuven, Belgium
    Neurosci Biobehav Rev 29:259-69. 2005
    ..We suspect that high maternal anxiety in the first half of pregnancy may negatively affect brain development of the fetus, reflected by impulsivity and lower WISC-R scores at 14-15 years...
  4. ncbi request reprint [The importance of the prenatal life period]
    Bea van den Bergh
    Katholieke Universiteit Leuven
    Prax Kinderpsychol Kinderpsychiatr 53:221-36. 2004

    Child Dev 75:1085-97. 2004
    ..Anxiety at 12 to 22 weeks postmenstrual age turned out to be a significant independent predictor whereas anxiety at 32 to 40 weeks was not. Results are consistent with a fetal programming hypothesis...

    Neuroreport 16:751-4. 2005
