Mum’s asthma puts baby’s health at risk
mother's asthma during pregnancy raises the risk of a wide range of childhood diseases for her baby, reports a study from Denmark. More than the mother's history of asthma, the risk was associated with her experiencing an asthma attack during her pregnancy. Asthma during pregnancy is linked to foetal under-development and diseases in the offspring, like increased risk of infection, parasitic illness, nervous and respiratory system complications and ear and skin diseases.
Researchers recommend heightened scrutiny of asthma status during pregnancy, and increased efforts to better control condition.
