A word of warning….just because it’s a proven fact by researchers at the University of British Columbia doesn’t mean she wants to hear it.
“Honey, you’re brain is shrinking” in response to anything she forgets during and after pregnancy may be met with a flying object…at your head.
All jokes aside it is true that a lot of women complain of “baby brain”. Now we know it is real.
University of B.C. researchers have found that during pregnancy a woman’s brain actually shrinks by up to 8%, and doesn’t recuperate to its full capacity until around six months after the baby is born.
