A High-Fat Diet a Day Equals Increase in Birth Defects

Maternal DietThe “what-not-to-do-during-pregnancy” list is growing.  Already on the list are alcohol, raw fish/meat,  cigarettes, smoked seafood, fish with mercury or fish exposed to industrial pollutants, soft cheeses, unpasteurized milk, pate, caffeine, and unwashed vegetables. However, a new study sponsored by England’s Welcome Trust and the British Heart Foundation shows women who take on a high-fat diet before and during pregnancy will increase the risk of congenital heart defects in offspring.

Congenital heart disease is a disease that results in a problem with the structure of the heart and is the most common type of birth defect. Defects range from problems with the walls of the heart to the arteries and veins near the heart. Congenital heart disease will disrupt the flow of normal blood to the heart. Women with diabetes or woman who are overweight or obese already have a higher risk for their children to obtain congenital heart disease.

Results from the research shows that genes of an unborn offspring can be affected by maternal diet. If you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant, speak to your doctor to find out if you need to make any adjustments to your current diet.

Women restingHey mom’s! Take a breather… It might be good for your child.
A recent study issued in the August print issue of the American Journal of Public Health has shown that stress amongst soon-to-be mom’s can have an effect on the developing fetus. Mothers who work long, stressful hours at work before going on maternity leave increase the risk of their baby having a low birth weight.The survey was completed by 8,266 pregnant women concerning their stress levels, and working conditions. It was found that women who work 32 hours a week or more and have high stress levels while in their first trimester have the greatest risk of birth-weight reduction and delivering a small-for-gestational-age baby, or having developmental and behavioral problems with their baby.

The researchers of this study wrote that “Although pregnant women typically reduce their working hours or workloads at the end of the pregnancy, our results suggest that reducing job strain and working hours in the initial stages of pregnancy may be beneficial among women with stressful full-time jobs,”. In addition, anxiety and depression can also have this affect on newborns. Pregnant yoga

So if you are a pregnant working woman relax and take some time off whenever you begin to feel overwhelmed in the workplace. Try attending some prenatal yoga classes to help you relax, or take a warm bubble bath to wash the stress away.
