You’ve likely heard many mothers referring to “Baby Brain” but is “Baby Brain” actually a real thing?
If you are asking the question to Deakin University, they are likely to say yes.
The Deakin University is currently conducting a study (as noted in the medical journal of Australia) which reveals that some pregnant woman do actually show declining rates of cognitive fiction during pregnancy.
The research involving more than 1,200 women found that some women expressed decreased memory functions and general cognitive functioning during various stages in their pregnancy.
While researchers state that there is a definite correlation between changes in cognitive brain functions and pregnancy, more work is needed to be performed to understand what measurable effects these changes have on pregnant women.
