Epigenetics and the Maternal Body: Ethical and Social Dimensions

Epigenetics research situates the maternal body as a central site of epigenetic programming and transmission and as a significant locus of medical and public health intervention. Is there a potential for this research to heighten public health surveillance of and restrictions on pregnant women and mothers?  How might this new research participate in the often-troubled history of notions of the supreme role of the mother in normal and pathological development?
