Dear Colleague

Welcome to Bengaluru for the unique conference on Perinatal Health- Nature and Nurture.
We have come a long way since David Barker proposed the effect of intrauterine environment in the causation of adult disease in the offspring. Today, there is a large body of evidence in literature linking maternal health, lifestyle and behaviour around prepregnancy, pregnancy and post partum period to the health of the offspring at birth and later in life.

IT IS NOT JUST GENES – Emerging evidences on DOHaD (Developmental Origin of health and Disease) has shown a key role in Intra uterine foetal programming

How is it relevant to an obstetrician?

As Obstetricians we play a key role in maintaining physical and mental health of mother and child not only during pregnancy but long term.

  • Understanding the epigenetics- How the Intra-uterine environment in the first nine months of life shapes the rest of our life and the future generations. We pass more biological milestones before we are born and in the early few months of life than at any other times in our lives
  • Modulation of Intra-uterine environment- With the above understanding Obstetrician’s play an important role in modifying maternal health care (pre-pregnancy, antenatal, intra and post-partum) to promote healthy human development
  • Counseling regarding future maternal and child health- Preganancy provides a window of opportunity for interventions as complications in preganancy can herald future maternal health issues

Please come and listen to the renowned international faculty who have done original research on these topics


Masterclasses are also differently planned with invited experts from the respective fields to conduct these classes. You have an option to choose and attend one of the four masterclasses.
