A first of its kind study has shown that pregnancy changes the brain of women. Pregnancy is a time of dramatic change for all expectant mothers. Growing a human being is no small feat just ask any newly pregnant woman. It’s very important to keep yourself healthy during pregnancy. Hormones surge as the body undergoes a massive physical transformation. The biggest changes, many of which can be seen with the naked eye, are quite predictable.
A study reveals that pregnancy changes the brain of women that persists for at least two years after birth. These areas of the brain are responsible for a variety of tasks, including social cognition. That’s the ability to interact with others.
The study also offers preliminary evidence that this remodeling may play a role in helping women transition into motherhood.
