Pharmacy Daily - - News -

GEN­ERAL cog­ni­tive func­tion­ing and mem­ory were sig­nif­i­cantly poorer in preg­nant women than in con­trols, par­tic­u­larly dur­ing the third trimester, ac­cord­ing to a meta‐anal­y­sis of 20 stud­ies look­ing at rela on­ships be­tween preg­nancy and changes in cog­ni­tion.

Pub­lished in the MJA, the study re­in­forces the ex­is­tence of the so‐ called “baby brain” ef­fect.
