The aim of this thesis was to study associations of perinatal conditions with cognitive and psychiatric problems in later life. Most epidemiological studies on the effects of perinatal circumstances on future (mental) health focus on specific obstetric complications – like complications during delivery, low birth weight, or maternal smoking during pregnancy – as specific risk factors for specific disorders. However, pregnancy and delivery are complex processes, and isolated obstetric complications rare and often accompanied or followed by a number of others.
