Stress has a strong impact on babies

Doctors claim that mothers who under stress while being pregnant can harm their babies’ brains.

A survey done in London reveals that children are more prone to being hyperactive and encounter attention problems. It also said that babies would have lower IQ levels.

According to reports stress hormones aggravated by anxiety seeps into the mother’s womb. The baby is at risk when the mother has constant arguments with the partner or is being abused.

Professor Vivette Glover of the Imperial College London research team says mothers are more under pressure now than in the past. This could be a contributing factor to the behaviour patterns in children.
