Stress in Pregnancy

Persistent stress during pregnancy has long-term and serious consequences for the unborn child.

The long-term increased stress hormone level doubles the risk of the unborn child to develop attention deficit or hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) later. The same applies to the development of depression and learning difficulties. There is also evidence suggesting a connection with stress during pregnancy and schizophrenia and autism. Extreme stress during pregnancy can have some serious effects on the health of the unborn baby. These include, among others a premature onset of labor, an increased risk of miscarriage, or an underweight baby. Prenatal stress also carries the risk of having an asthmatic or allergic baby.

In summary, it can be said that a mother can transfer stress to her child or consciously protect it from too much stress. Inner security, the ability to confront, but above all contentment and inner balance can strengthen the unborn. Too much stressful stimuli is perceived by the child in the womb as stress, which can also be harmful. The calming heartbeat of a balanced, satisfied mother who is looking forward to her child promotes emotional and healthy development. The most important thing for the child is that they feel accepted, loved and wanted.
