Stressed Out During Pregnancy = Asthma & Allergies for Baby

Stressed moms-to-be may pass that stress on to their babies in the form of a "social pollutant," according researchers from Harvard Medical School who presented their findings Sunday at the American Thoracic Society's 2008 International Conference in Toronto.
