Study debunks notion that C-section would increase risk of obesity in the child
Women who have C-sections are no more likely to have children who develop obesity than women who give birth naturally, according to a large study by researchers at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden published in the journal PLOS Medicine. The findings contradict several smaller studies that did find an association between C-section deliveries and offspring obesity but did not consider the numerous maternal and prenatal factors that the researchers did in this study.

Systematic review shows risk of a child developing overweight or obesity is more than trebled by maternal obesity prior to pregnancy
New research presented at this year's European Congress on Obesity (ECO) in Glasgow, Scotland (April 28- May 1) reveals that the risk of a child becoming overweight or obese is more than trebled by maternal obesity prior to getting pregnant.

Caltech researchers show how active immune tolerance makes pregnancy possible
How a pregnant body tolerates a fetus that is biologically distinct from its mother has long been a mystery. Now, a pair of scientists from Caltech have shown that females actively produce a particular type of immune cell in response to specific fetal antigens -- immune-stimulating proteins -- and that this response allows pregnancy to continue without the fetus being rejected by the mother's body.

The study was published online in the journal of Health Psychology. (2014-02-04)

Key nutrient in maternal diet promises 'dramatic' improvements for people with Down syndrome
A new study done at Cornell University and published June 2 in the peer-reviewed journal Behavioral Neuroscience found that more choline during pregnancy and nursing could provide lasting cognitive and emotional benefits to people with Down syndrome. The work indicated greater maternal levels of the essential nutrient also could protect against neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimer's disease. (2010-06-03)

Large dataset shows that income, work status and education have a clear influence on mortality in Germany. (2019-10-15)

Plasma DHA declines more rapidly postpartum in lactating than in nonlactating women
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA; 22:6n-3) phospholipids rise during pregnancy in order to supply the needs of the fetus, especially for the developing central nervous system. Otto et al. compared the postpartum normalization of maternal plasma phospholipids in lactating and nonlactating women. Maternal DHA declined rapidly in both groups, and declined more significantly in the lactating women. The study suggests that DHA is selectively transferred to breast milk during early lactation.

Study finds in utero surgery preferable to surgery
In a study to be presented today at the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine's annual meeting, The Pregnancy Meeting, in Dallas, Texas, researchers will report findings that show that, for children with spina bifida, surgery conducted while the fetus is still in utero as opposed to surgery on a newborn is more cost effective due to the costs associated with caring for a child with significant deficits. (2012-02-09)

The epigenetics of increasing weight through the generations
Overweight mothers give birth to offspring who become even heavier, resulting in amplification of obesity across generations, said Baylor College of Medicine researchers in Houston who found that chemical changes in the ways genes are expressed -- a phenomenon called epigenetics -- could affect successive generations of mice. (2008-07-15)

Infections during pregnancy may interfere with genes linked to prenatal brain development
If a mother picks up an infection during pregnancy, her immune system will kick into action to clear the infection -- but this self-defense mechanism may also have a small influence how her child's brain develops in the womb, in ways that are similar to how the brain develops in autism spectrum disorders. Now, an international team of researchers has shown why this may be the case. (2017-03-21)

Seeds inherit memories from their mother
Seeds remain in a dormant state as long as environmental conditions are not ideal for germination. The depth of this sleep is inherited from their mother. UNIGE'Researchers reveal how this maternal imprint is transmitted through fragments of 'interfering' RNAs, which inactivate genes, and that a similar mechanism enables to transmit another imprint, that of the temperatures present during the development of the seed. This mechanism allows the seed to optimize the timing of its germination. (2019-03-26)

In a study to be presented today at the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine's annual meeting, the Pregnancy Meeting, in Chicago, researchers will unveil findings that show that waiting for birth is as effective as inducing labor in cases of intrauterine growth restriction. (2010-02-04)

Findings: How viral infection disrupts neural development in offspring, increasing risk of autism
Activating a mother's immune system during her pregnancy disrupts the development of neural cells in the brain of her offspring and damages the cells' ability to transmit signals and communicate with one another, researchers with the UC Davis Center for Neuroscience and Department of Neurology have found. (2013-09-26)

Preventable infectious diseases caused almost two-thirds of global child under-5 deaths in 2010
In 2010, preventable infectious diseases were responsible for almost two-thirds of the 7.6 million deaths of children under five worldwide, according to new estimates published Online First in the Lancet. Although child deaths have declined by 26 percent (two million) since 2000, few countries are going to achieve international targets for improving child survival with less than three years before the 2015 deadline for Millennium Development Goal Four. (2012-05-10)
