About Me


My name is Dr. Siobhan Kennedy-Costantini and I am a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the University of Auckland. My research interests lie broadly in the field of developmental psychology with a particular focus on the parent-infant relationship and early social development.

I am also interested in maternal experiences during pregnancy, postnatal maternal health and well-being, the establishment of breastfeeding and the early parental bond. My ultimate goal is to conduct research that improves the lives of mothers and babies and allows them to develop strong, happy and healthy lives together.
