Stressed-Out Moms Carry Babies on the Right

Finding could help head off postpartum depression, study suggests

WEDNESDAY, Aug. 29 (HealthDay News) -- Can spotting unhealthy levels of stress in a new mother be as simple as seeing which arm she uses to carry her baby?

Lead author Dr. Nadja Reissland, a senior lecturer at Durham University's psychology department, said, "Many mothers don't realize they are suffering from stress, or don't want to admit they are. The way they interact wi
