The impact of prenatal trauma on children

This podcast originally appeared here.

In this podcast with The Adoption Connection, registered nurse and foster mom Stacey Jackson Gagnon highlights the impact of prenatal trauma on not just the mental health of children but also on their physical health.

In this podcast, Stacey encourages us with so many nuggets of helpful wisdom! It can be hard, because as Stacy points out, “We don’t know what we don’t know.” Stacey helps identify what we can look for in the lives of children we love who have experienced prenatal trauma and what we can do to help them.
