Welcome to the Perinatal Health and Behavior (PHAB) group!

The perinatal period, from pregnancy through the first postpartum year, has critical implications for health and well-being of women and their families.  Our goal is to improve the physical and mental health of perinatal women through research, education and training.  We are particularly interested in understanding relationships among mood, eating, weight, smoking and other health behaviors during and after pregnancy and in developing, adapting, and evaluating interventions to address the needs of women and families during the perinatal period. The PHAB Lab also is dedicated to training the next generation of clinical scientists interested in a scientific and clinical focus on women’s health.
