Natural Childbirth Moms More Attuned to Babies' Cry

Finding may help shed light on postpartum depression in those choosing Caesareans

The researchers also studied areas of the brain affected by delivery conditions and found ties between brain activity and measures of mood. This suggests that some of the same brain regions may help regulate postpartum mood.

"This work could lead to early detection of families at risk for postpartum depression and attachment problems and form a model for testing interventions."
