Eating disorders mothers and their children: a systematic review of the literature

Abstract: To provide an overview of the impact of maternal eating disorders (ED) on child development in a number of domains including feeding and eating behaviour, neuropsychological profile and cognitive development, psychopathology and temperament. PubMed, Embase and PsychInfo were searched for studies exploring the impact of maternal ED on children between January 1980 and September 2018. Initial search yielded 569 studies. After exclusion, 32 studies were reviewed. Overall, available evidence shows that children of… Show more

“…In a small-scale longitudinal study, Martini et al [ 44 ] found that at 6 months postpartum, mothers with current and past eating disorder reported higher concerns about their child being or becoming overweight, and were less aware of hunger and satiety cues in their child, compared with healthy controls. A systematic literature review of studies comparing mothers with and without an eating disorder and their children revealed a range of differences that indicate an impact of maternal eating disorder on the child's psychological, cognitive, and eating development, such as more behavioural difficulties regarding feeding and eating, more socioemotional difficulties, and possibly an increased risk for the development of eating disorder in the child [ 45 ]. Reports of children's difficulties by mothers with an eating disorder may be biased and need to be considered with caution.…”

“…These were sex, mother lifetime AN, and body mass index (BMI) zscore at baseline (age 10). Symptoms and diagnoses of both anxiety disorders and AN are elevated amongst female adolescents [41,42], and maternal AN has been associated with child psychopathology [43,44]. Childhood BMI has been linked to AN, and found to predict both increased and decreased risk [45,46]; elevated BMI has also been implicated in adolescent anxiety development (e.g.…”

“…This review is one of very few systematic reviews on BF in combination with maternal EDs (Behar and Arancibia 2014;Martini et al 2020). Both Behar and Arancibia (2014) and Martini et al (2020) had a different research focus by covering BF in mothers with EDs as one of many topics, and therefore, the number of included studies on this topic was limited in both reviews. In this present review, the specific focus is solely on BF practices in mothers with and without EDs, with a systematic approach and high actuality.…”

“…As there are various contrasting results regarding BF practices of mothers with lifetime EDs, the present systematic review is intended to provide more detailed evidence regarding overall BF behavior of mothers with current or active EDs, including BF duration as well as physical and emotional barriers to BF. Previously published reviews on this topic had different primary aims (Behar and Arancibia 2014;Martini et al 2020). Therefore, the main research questions of the present systematic review are: a) Is there a difference in duration of exclusive or partial BF after childbirth in women with a history of EDs compared to healthy women?…”
