Mothers with morning sickness produce Intelligent babies

Women who have conceived & suffering from morning sickness should not lose heart because according to a new study , for feeling nauseous in early pregnancy could be a sign that the baby developing in the womb has high IQ. Woman who reports filling ill in the first few weeks after the pregnancy has to have brighter , more vocal child.

Scientist believe it is triggered by the flood of hormones released to protect the placenta & foetus. Earlier studies shown that nausea is a sign of a healthy pregnancy. It is also associated with lower risk of heart problem in the baby & lower the risk of miscarriage. Researchers at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto now believe it could also be linked to the developing baby's brain.

They took the research on the long-term effects of nausea on the brains of babies & contacted 121 women who called a hotline for newly pregnant mothers. Thirty of the women had no symptoms of morning sickness , while the rest reported symptoms such as tiredness , vomiting and nausea.

Researchers carried out IQ level & behavior test on children when they were three & seven years old. The children whose mothers suffered from morning sickness were more likely to have high IQ scores than those whose mothers had no symptoms. Other children have less IQ level compared to the children born from women suffered from morning sickness.

Dr Gideon Koren said , “Its the hormones secreted by the placenta that cause you to feel yucky , but on the other hand, they probably confer better conditions for the baby , Women suffer for it, but at least it's for a good cause”. The hormone swings that led to morning sickness could be a good thing.

Morning sickness during pregnancy is thought to be a reaction to two hormones - thyroxine and human chorionic gonadotropin - which are secreted during pregnancy to ensure a healthy placenta. According to the Department of Health , around half of all pregnant women experience both nausea and vomiting.
