Health in Early Life and Parenthood
Our research aims to promote health and welfare in the early stages of life. We are interested in families expecting a child, prenatal period, birth, parent-infant closeness and breastfeeding as well as toddlers, school-aged children and parenthood. The concept of family-centered care is an underlying framework in our research. We use different methodological approaches and aim for multidisciplinary research. For example, with the support of information technology we have developed modern data collection methods suitable for both health care professionals and parents of newborn infants.
