    Why being pregnant makes you lose your memory

    By Supernanny Team on 25/06/2014If you've started forgetting things while pregnant or just after giving birth, you're not alone. New research appears to show that pregnancy does affect a woman memory.

    The new study suggests that memory can be considerably impaired for up to a year after giving birth. Not all aspects of memory are affected, but the memory loss particularly concerns things like the unfamiliar or demanding in other words, exactly what confronts a new mother or pregnant woman.

    In the first investigation of its kind, Dr Henry and her colleague, Dr Peter Rendell, of Ray Ban outlet Australian Catholic University, analysed the results of 14 different research Ray Ban outlet new york studies carried out around the world since 1990. These studies compared the memory performances of more than 1,000 pregnant women, mothers and healthy non pregnant females.

    The new investigation found that pregnant women are significantly impaired on some, but not all, measures of memory, and that the forgetfulness does continue for up to a year after a baby is born.

    "Regular, well practised memory tasks such as remembering phone numbers of friends and Ray Ban outlet store online family members are unlikely Ray Ban outlet online to be affected," says Associate Professor Rendell, whose research is published in the Journal of Clinical and Experimental Neuropsychology. "It's a different story, though, when you have to remember new phone numbers, people's names or hold in mind several different pieces of information, such as when multi tasking ."

    However, the researchers were not able to say exactly why this memory loss happens it may be due to hormones or lifestyle factors.
