    Hey guys,
    I'm a first year student studying psychology and I'm a little stuck for my assignment.
    The question is "critically evaluate the impact of both environmental and maternal factors on prenatal development"
    So I've got a basic kind of plan-
    Intro: define prenatal, environmental and maternal factors (give examples)
    Main body- state factor for eg: maternal stress so ive said how hormones such as...... increase, and the effects of this. Backed up with a study, explained it, then put another supporting this (Not sure if this is how I should be doing this)
    My idea is then to find something which contradicts this and then say well another factor such as radioactivity plays and important role?
    In my last assignment I just passed because I didn't critically evaluate, problem is, idk if I can?
    Am I doing it right or do I still need to critically evaluate?
    Thank youu!
