'Baby Brain' Is Real, Scientists Confirm, And We May Finally Know Why

  'Baby Brain' Is Real, Scientists Confirm, And We May Finally Know Why The mental fog that can come with pregnancy – commonly referred to as 'baby brain' – isn't merely the result of discomfort, stress, and sleepless nights: A mother's brain really does seem to change to accommodate the new arrival. A new study by researchers from the Netherlands has uncovered strong evidence of a relationship between surges in pregnancy hormones and changes to the architecture in areas of the brain involved with contemplation and daydreaming. Putting aside the forgetfulness and difficulty maintaining focus, the modifications could be nature's way of helping mothers bond with their new bundle of joy.
