Birth Psychology
- An area of developmental psychology which concerns itself with pre-natal, the birth and early infant mental health considerations.

Association for Pre & Perinatal Psychology and Health - APPPAH was founded in 1983  as a forum for individuals from diverse backgrounds and disciplines interested in psychological dimensions of prenatal and perinatal experiences. Typically, this includes childbirth educators, birth assistants, doulas, midwives, obstetricians, nurses, social workers, perinatologists, pediatricians, psychologists, counselors, researchers, and teachers at all levels. One does not have to be a professional, however: all who share these interests are welcome to join. 4 /5  Student

Birth Order Research - I think a good approach to birth order is to consider how sibling relationships are depicted in myths and fairytales or in the Bible (especially in the Old Testament). There are many stereotypes concerning the different positions in a family (e.g. last-born as "nestling"). Recall your own experiences. Perhaps you come upon an autobiographic account of a famous first, last, middle or only child.  4/5

Fetal Well Being Tests - Stress and non-stress tests determine if an unborn baby is receiving enough oxygen and nutrients from the placenta. Tests are also used to monitor the health of a mother and her unborn baby. Some tests are routine with every pregnancy; others are typically prescribed for women who have a history of complications in pregnancy. Ask your doctor about fetal well-being tests and about the reasons they are or are not recommended for you. 3/5
