A research of the Norwegian Institute of Public Health was carried out on 60.000 women. The result is that pregnant women who have 1 cup of coffee a day can reduce the weight of newborns. So, it’s recommended that women shouldn’t drink coffee.

A cup of coffee contains 140mg caffeine. So if you absorb 200-300mg caffeine a day, you’ll have the risk of Small for gestational age (SGA) increased around 27%-62%. If pregnant women absorb 100mg caffeine a day, their newborns will reduce to 21-28kg while they’re supposed to have 36kg on average.

Caffeine is a factor causing fetal slow developments. A part from caffeine, people also found that tobacco was a factor also.

For the result, the researchers conducted a long-term research on 77,895 women who gave birth in the period of time around 1983-2005. It resulted that to 21,841 pregnant women who were addicted to alcohol, there were 171 children who have SID were born.

Do not have epilepsy medicines

Based on the latest researches relating to bad effects of epilepsy, in the late January, 2013, the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) recommended that pregnant women shouldn’t take the epilepsy medicine called Valproate (trade name: Depakote) because it can increase the risk of autism and other issues relating to fetal physical and intellectual developments.

Valproate is dedicated to treat epilepsy, mental disorders and migraines. Pregnant women who using this medicine not only cause birth defects, but also decrease the IQ index and the ability of learning to their children in the future.      

The recommendation of AAN is based on the research conducted by specialists from Liverpool University, England. The research was carried out on 500 pregnant women from 2000-2004, half of them had epilepsy, and 34 people in the epilepsy group used drugs to treat seizures.

In the total of 415 children born by the group of people had epilepsy, there were 19 had their nerve development extremely slow till the age of 6; 12 had autism; 1 had Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and 3 have reading trouble. Overall, if children that are born by women who use Valproate and other drugs have the rate of slow development increased 6-10 times as much as children who aren’t.

Especially, male newborns are 3 times as high risk as the female ones. For that reason, it’s recommended that pregnant women should stay away from the group of medicines, especially from the 3 followings: Carbamazepine (Tegretol), Valproate and Lamotrigine (Lamictal).

Do not overuse vitamin D

It’s recommended by specialists from Helmltz Center for Environment Research (HCER), Martin Luther University (Germany) and published on Allergy Magazine on February, 2013. According to HCER researches, women who overuse those substances can increase the risk of allergy in their children.

The researchers found that if there’s a high level of vitamin D in pregnant women’s blood, there’d be the same in their placentas. The research was carried out on 622 pregnant women and their children.

The results id that women who have low level of vitamin D in their blood, the level of vitamin in their 2-year-old children is still low and has lower chance of allergy. Otherwise, if women have high level of vitamin in their blood, their children will have more chances of allergy, especially food allergy.

The foods that often cause allergy are egg yolk, protein, milk, peanut and beans. The researchers recommend women to limit using vitamin during pregnancy or ask for doctor’s prescriptions to take the medicines rightly and safely.   

Great weight gaining in pregnancy can cause trouble for mother and infant.

Great weight gaining in pregnancy can cause trouble for mother and infant.

One of the troubles is causing fetal unstable brain developments. The result is concluded by a research conducted by the Mother Infant Research Institute (MIRI) in America. It was carried out on 16 pregnant women.

According to the research, newborns of obese women have genetic transmission in a different stage of pregnancy in comparison to thin women. Women who have normal weight don’t have those kinds of trouble.

Particularly, in development process, there’s some unusual phenomenon in the placenta, such as the high rate of cell death or so-called programmed cell death (apoptosis). Besides, there’s a lot of different unusual things after the children are born; there’re even autism and other mental disorders.

Reduce blood pressure increase in the late pregnancy

After finishing the research lasting 27 years and carried out on 750 births, the specialists from Copenhagen University, Danish said that there were 10% of women who have gestational hypertension. It’d be better, if the blood pressure increase moderately in the early pregnancy because if it happens in the late one when the increase can cause many negative effects on mothers and infants, especially to the children in the future.

It’d be better, if the blood pressure increase moderately in the early pregnancy.

If the blood pressure has a small increase (especially in the 3 first months), it’ll help the labor happening more smoothly. Otherwise, it’ll increase the risk of natal mortality and hypertension in children. 

So far, scientists, still, haven’t known the reason of gestational hypertension. On the least situation, they just consider about the evolution, genetic factors, especially the gene that is transmitted from fathers to daughters, and other relating factors. 

To prevent the disease, before getting pregnant, women should have medical examination and treatment to get rid of disease that they’re infected with, maintain an active lifestyle, sensible eating habit, quit drinking alcohol and using stimulants, abstain from living in harmful environments.
