The risk of schizophrenia and related disorders was around 67% greater among the offspring of women who lost a relative during their first trimester.

The study appears in the journal Archives of General Psychiatry.

The findings appear to confirm the theory that a mother's psychological state can have a profound influence on her unborn baby.
