If You Dare

OK, I understand this is not in the spirit of being grateful or handmade fabric loveliness. But I'm more than a little cross. Becoming a mother didn't mean I became a brainless twit or did it?

um not sure if i should just be really quiet...and not say anything...but...but...when you become a mother your brain cells increase in direct proportion to the number of hours in labour multiplied by the number of days since that you've managed to stay off antidepressants...seriously...there's data that shows we DO become MORE intelligent

Babies 'boost' mothers' intelligence

LONDON: Babies not only bring happiness in family but they also boost the intelligence level of their mothers, a new study has claimed.

Previous studies had shown pregnant women suffer a decrease in mental capacity, dubbed "baby brain". Now, a team at Richmond University has found that having a toddler makes a woman brighter.

According to researchers, moms-to-be rewire their brains to cope with motherhood -- and their intelligence soars when the tots are actually born.

They have based their findings on an experiment on laboratory rodents, which showed that mother rats become braver and faster at finding food after their babies are born, 'The Sun' reported.

And the increased ability could curb Alzheimer's, according to the researchers.

"The changes could last for the rest of their lives," lead researcher Prof Craig Kinsley of Richmond University was quoted by the British tabloid as saying. tell that to whoever's givin u grief!
