The long-term effects of chronic stress on children with Dr. Laura Hanson

Listen on: Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Google Podcasts

Today we’re continuing our series on childhood development by talking about stress and it’s influence on developmental progression. We use the word stress so lightly, but it is a physiological event that can affect every part of our bodies, and especially our brains. We are not meant to be in stress all the time. I think we often think about stress as it applies to adults, but forget that children can also experience stress and chronic stress. In this episode I talk about how stress relates to development and physiology, how it triggers our fight or flight response, and what to do if you or your child are caught in a cycle of chronic stress.

In this episode, we cover:

  • Beneficial types of stress
  • The Moro Reflex
  • Effect of stress on oxygen levels and circulation
  • The importance of a healthy gut
  • The long-term effects of chronic stress on children
  • Signs that your child is experiencing chronic stress and has an elevated fight or flight response
  • Considerations to make before conceiving a baby
