Pregnancy is a fascinating time of change for a new life growing within the womb. A baby grows a great deal from the point following conception to the time just prior to birth.
The foundation of your baby’s intelligence is being built while baby is still a fetus. This stage of your baby’s life is very critical because this is where the raw materials of his intelligence and personality are being formed. Fetal brain development has long lasting effect on your baby’s personality.
Partner has a big role to play during pregnancy:
Researchers says that if the woman had a partner who was being emotionally cruel to them while they were pregnant it had a really significant effect on their baby's future development.It really shows that the partner has a big role to play.Maternal stress increases the risk of a range of problems.If we could reduce the mother's stress while she is pregnant we might be able to potentially improve the outcome for a baby.
"However, it is a warning for people who may be facing more severe stresses and for those around women who are pregnant that increasing stress levels above what is normal for a person is not a good thing to do at that time."
Do you know that: At conception, a baby begins as a group of cells that are rapidly multiplying and becoming bigger. These cells continue to form the organs and tissues of the body, and the baby's appearance changes as new body parts develop. The development of a baby's brain in the womb is the foundation of life after birth. The human brain begins development three weeks after conception with the formation of the neural tube atop the entire length of the embryo.
"There are times when a baby's brain is making a quarter of a million new neurons and making links between them every minute,"
From the moment of conception, the foetus is continually developing and growing, both physically and mentally. There are times when a baby’s brain is making a quarter of a million new neurons every minute which is one of the reasons why pregnant women get so tired – creating brain cells is hard work! In the womb, your baby’s brain is developing all the time, growing neurons and also making links between those neurons.
Babies can recognise their mother’s voice, which shows that they developed that memory before they were born, so the brain was ‘working’ at that stage. This is one of the reasons why diet and the lifestyle choices that you make can have such an impact upon the unborn child.
“The longer a baby stays in the womb, the smarter the child, new research shows.”
