The prenatal history of the mother has been related to maternal senitivity and has an impacto n the relationship with her children.

In this study the interactive mother-child pattern where observed in mothers an her three month old children. The simple consisted on twelve mother- infant dyads, 6 with the antecedente of perinnatl loss and 6 whitouth these antecedent. Aniexity, depression and distress where meassured, and there where not difeferences observed between these women. As the interactive patterns, there were a diferrence, the women with previous perinnatal loss show less sensitivity, because they fail to respond to the children when they showed distrees, wich has been observed in some studies (SROUFE, 2000).
