A new study led by a U-M researcher suggests that Black individuals may be more likely to experience social stressors and depressive symptoms associated with inflammation during pregnancy. Nadia Saadat, MBBS, M.S., Ph.D., a pediatrics research fellow at Michigan Medicine, shares insights from the study, which followed a cohort of 187 pregnant Black women at prenatal clinics. Saadat explores how this systemic inflammation affects maternal health and the health outcomes of children later in life, suggesting the need to develop new healthcare screening guidelines.
