High Blood Pressure during Pregnancy and the Child’s IQ

We all know that’s important for spec and mothers to be extremely careful about all aspects of their health. If moms not healthy, it would be difficult for the baby to develop normally. Even knowing this, I was surprised at the results in a recent published study.

The study looked at several hundred women who were pregnant between the years of 1934 in 1944, and then examined the intellectual capabilities of their children at age 20 and again at age 69. Obviously, it was a long-term study.

The bottom line is that children whose mothers had high blood pressure during pregnancy scored lower on the intelligence test decades later. Yet another reason for an expectant mom to take care of herself.
