Dear Colleagues, Optimal health during the perinatal period is essential not only for women but also for the developing infant. Failure in physical and mental health during this period has been related to anxiety disorders and depression in the mother and unstructured attachment in infancy, harmful outcomes nowadays and with seriously impacting on public health policies. Physical and Mental Health during gestation and the immediate postnatal period is a profound unknown in the field of public health. Moreover, events that occur in the fetal period may be so decisive for the health of future generations that they may predispose to cardiovascular disease. This idea has been worked out under the Fetal Programming Hypothesis. In this context, it would seem logical to think that increasing maternal health knowledge with physical and mental implications will be helpful to optimize materno–fetal development. This Research Topic welcomes the latest research or reviews focusing on maternal health during the perinatal period, their role in health and diseases not only in women but also in infants. In this Research Topic, the peri- and postnatal stage is valued, so research related to the gestational stage is also welcome. We accept original research articles, literature and systematic reviews, meta-analysis articles, intervention protocols, and case reports. This collection will focus on both basic, translational, and clinical research, which uses animal models, observational or interventional studies, and clinical trials.
