If a mother exercises during her pregnancy, will that benefit her children? Researchers at the University of Kentucky have initiated studies to look into the idea: a group from the UK Graduate Center for Nutritional Sciences has received a $100,000 grant from the National Institutes of Health to study whether maternal exercise during pregnancy can lead to a reduced risk of cancer in offspring. ...> Full Article

Birth is no reason to go to hospital (9/24/2012)

A new Cochrane Review concludes that all countries should consider establishing proper home birth services. They should also provide low-risk pregnant women with information enabling them to make an informed choice.

Preemies' brains reap long-term benefits from Kangaroo Mother Care (9/23/2012)

Kangaroo Mother Care -- a technique in which a breastfed premature infant remains in skin-to-skin contact with the parent's chest rather than being placed in an incubator -- has lasting positive impact on brain development, revealed Universite Laval researchers in the October issue of Acta Paediatrica. Very premature infants who benefited from this technique had better brain functioning in adolescence -- comparable to that of adolescents born at term -- than did premature infants placed in incubators. ...> Full Article

Study implicates marijuana use in pregnancy problems (9/21/2012)

New research indicates marijuana-like compounds called endocannabinoids alter genes and biological signals critical to the formation of a normal placenta during pregnancy and may contribute to pregnancy complications like preeclampsia. A study in the Sept. 14 edition of the Journal of Biological Chemistry offers new evidence that abnormal biological signaling by endocannabinoid lipid molecules produced by the body disrupts the movement of early embryonic cells important to a healthy pregnancy. ...> Full Article


Maternal drinking during pregnancy can damage the earliest fetal learning (9/20/2012)

Habituation refers to the ability of an organism to stop responding to repeated stimulation. A new study has examined the impact of maternal drinking on fetal habituation or learning abilities while still residing in the mother's womb. Results showed that those fetuses exposed to heavy binge drinking required significantly more trials to habituate, and also exhibited a greater variability in test performance. ...> Full Article

The method offers new possibilities to delay delivery and prepare care for the premature baby. ...> Full Article

Coping skills, marital satisfaction help pregnant moms manage stress when fetus has heart defect (9/17/2012)

Expectant mothers who learn from prenatal diagnosis that they are carrying a fetus with a congenital heart defect commonly suffer post-traumatic stress, depression and anxiety. However, a healthy relationship with one's partner and positive coping mechanisms can reduce this intense stress, according to new research from the Cardiac Center of The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. ...> Full Article

Adolescents in foster care require guidelines for safe social media use, expert says (9/12/2012)

Adolescents in foster care require guidelines for safe social media use, expert saysAbout 73 percent of online American teens use social networking sites, such as Facebook, to share photos, interests and experiences with others, according to Pew Research Center. For youths in the foster care system, sharing information online presents additional safety and privacy issues. A University of Missouri researcher recommends that child welfare agencies develop policies to guide how adolescents in foster care use social media. ...> Full Article


Prenatal exposure to pesticide additive linked with childhood cough (9/11/2012)

What babies eat after birth likely determines lifetime risk of obesity, rat study suggests (9/10/2012)

Rats born to mothers fed high-fat diets but who get normal levels of fat in their diets right after birth avoid obesity and its related disorders as adults, according to new Johns Hopkins research. Meanwhile, rat babies exposed to a normal-fat diet in the womb but nursed by rat mothers on high-fat diets become obese by the time they are weaned. ...> Full Article


When to worry about kids' temper tantrums (9/9/2012)

Temper tantrums in young children can be an early signal of mental health problems, but how does a parent or pediatrician know when disruptive behavior is typical or a sign of a serious problem? A Northwestern researcher has developed a new tool for parents and professionals to know when to worry. In a surprising finding, the study also debunks the common belief temper tantrums are rampant among young children. ...> Full Article

Parents and readers beware of stereotypes in young adult literature (9/7/2012)

A newly defined genre of literature, "teen sick-lit," features tear-jerking stories of ill adolescents developing romantic relationships. Although "teen sick-lit" tends to adhere to negative stereotypes of the ill and traditional gender roles, it also explores the taboo realm of sexuality, sickness and youth, says the University of Missouri researcher who named the genre in a recent study. ...> Full Article


New method: Research team analyzes stress biology in babies (9/6/2012)

After waking up, the concentration of the stress hormone cortisol in saliva rises considerably; this is true not only for grown-ups but for babies as well. A research team from the Ruhr-Universitat Bochum and from Basel has reported this finding in the journal Psychoneuroendocrinology. This provides a new, non-invasive and uncomplicated possibility to already research the activity of the stress system during infancy. ...> Full Article

Researcher sings the baby blues (9/2/2012)

The impact of bipolar disorder during pregnancy has been hotly contended among the research community. Now, a new study from Lawson Health Research Institute and Western University is sorting out the debate. Despite contradictory findings in the literature, this review suggests pregnancy could have a positive impact on bipolar disorder. Unfortunately, the impact of mood stabilizer medications has complicated much of the existing data. Large, multicenter, prospective studies that specifically address the natural course of the disorder are needed to make a clear judgment. ...> Full Article


Infants' avoidance of drop-off reflects specific motor ability, not fear (9/1/2012)

Researchers have long studied infants' perceptions of safe and risky ground by observing their willingness to cross a visual cliff, a large drop-off covered with a solid glass surface. Now a new study has found that although infants learn to avoid the drop-off while crawling, this knowledge doesn't transfer to walking. This suggests that what infants learn is to perceive the limits of their ability to crawl or walk, not a generalized fear of heights. ...> Full Article
