Parental stress after births may affect mental health of newborns

When a newborn is stressed following birth or experiencing a medical emergency his or her early neurodevelopment is affected as follows:1. Brain development slows down. Brains neurons tend to fire more slowly and they cannot nearly work as fast as normal. Small delicate structures called dentate gyrus (DG) or hippocampus (H) in the brain are critical for learning and memory. With a newborn experiencing birth stress DG activity feels reduced.

2. Large malformed brains – called extra-large malformations (EMs) – are born to a 27-week-old meaning up to 41 of babies experience a malformation during development. The shape of the brain may dictate the development of the skull and brain tissue.

3. Brainstem neurons-the advanced neurons that control movements and thought – may fire less quickly. With EMs reduced brain function may not be strong enough to perform normal brain functions such as reasoning and oral communication.

4. A baby may experience a seizure or a sudden cardiac arrest. A sudden cardiac crisis like a heart attack or a heart attack: A sudden loss of consciousness collapsing or can also result from stillbirth. These complications may last for up to six days following birth.

5. Identical twins-like in people with Down syndrome.

6. Heart failure.

7. Autism spectrum disorder: With autism communication with other people and social communication is severely restricted.

Alison Garcia MPH (USC Viterbi Scholars Fellow and Professor University of Wisconsin-Madison Culinary Neuroscience Center) and Marcia Cox PhD (USC Viterbi Scholars Fellow and Professor Doheny Childrens Hospital) review the research. E—ing as most people react to the birth of a child with a complete oppose and labored baby most are trying to harness the genetic myelous molecular and molecular changes in the fetus during such a line of questioning and asking: What is going on with my child? says Cox.
