Date:7/25/2014

According to US News, "Unborn children of mothers exposed to severe stress are more likely than others to grow up overweight or obese, even if that stress occurred months before pregnancy."

There were two specific types of stress that caused obesity: "Children whose biological fathers died while they were in the womb were twice as likely to become obese as adults, because of the stress of bereavement on their mother." The other was that "children also had an increased risk of adult overweight or obesity if their mothers experienced the death of a close relative up to six months prior to their conception."

The main cause seems to be Cortisol, which is "the end product of the stress system -- influences the storage of fat, and if this system is programmed to more storage early in life this may very well be a factor in development of obesity."

The basic results of the study were that "a mother's response to stress apparently has long-term effects on the child she carries."

Dr. Michael Gabriel of GPM Pediatrics comments on the study. "It is important that all pregnant mothers stay as stress free as possible, but stress does have a way of finding its way into our lives. The levels of stress that this study discusses are not the types of stress that happens normally or often to expectant mothers. Knowing this information will only help us understand what will happen in the future."
