Mums have always joked about having “baby brain” and some studies confirm that it’s no illusion. Up to 80% of women find that their brains are not functioning at full capacity during pregnancy and the first year of baby’s life.
It’s believed that it’s a combination of hormones and sleep deprivation that causes the memory loss and changes to the way the brain thinks during pregnancy and new motherhood. New research suggests this is to help mothers focus on their baby’s needs.
