Stress During Pregnancy Linked with Preterm Births
Babies born toِ women whoِ experienced a lot ofِ stress duringِ pregnancy mayِ haveِ worse health thanِ those born toِ less-stressed women, according toِ a newِ study fromِ the Netherlands.
While theِ difference mayِ seem small, theِ difference isِ clinically relevant givenِ the life-long effects thatِ pre-term birth canِ bring, theِ researchers said.
Support forِ these women couldِ help prevent long-term health consequences forِ their children, Loomans said.
