The research of Faculty Fellow Laura Miller-Graff (psychology and peace studies) was highlighted in a news article from the Notre Dame College of Arts and Letters.  This research involved a novel study examining the role of breastfeeding as a potential protective factor against detrimental outcomes for infants associated with intimate partner violence (IPV) during pregnancy.  The findings showed that breastfeeding through the first six weeks of life acts as a protective factor, effectively negating the risk of IPV the mother experienced during pregnancy on early infant difficult temperament.  In her article write-up of the study, Miller-Graff writes "Ultimately, evaluating the potential protective effects of short-term breastfeeding may be particularly relevant and may hold high public health significance."
