New British research has shown that mothers who give birth to boys may have a higher risk of postnatal depression than women who have given birth to girls.
This study, led by researchers at Kent University, focused on 296 women who were born to find out whether there is any link between them species their children and occurrence baby blues,
The link between inflammation and the development of depressive symptoms and the development of male fetuses has been found, and two causes are associated with increased inflammation, and scientists have attempted to see this study if it could be linked to the occurrence of children's blues.
Their results showed that women who gave birth to boys had a 71-79% increased risk of depression compared to women who gave birth to girls.
In addition, the results showed that women who suffered complication during childbirth recorded and increased risk 174% suffer from baby blues compared to women who were born without complications.
It should be noted that although women who are sensitive to anxiety and stress should be exposed to an increased risk of childhood blues, studies have shown that they are at a lower risk of developing this disorder after severe labor.
Scientists explained this because of their history, the mental disorders of these women are known and should be better taken into account by the family and the medical profession. This suggests that a good postpartum follow-up perhaps an effective way warn baby blues.
"Postnatal depression is avoid it and it has been shown that helping women at risk can help reduce the risk of developing the disease"Grow up and boy and complication on birth increase the risks for these women: these two facts give the medical profession two traces of "for identify women who would most need and follow during the first weeks and months of delivery"said co-author Sarah Johns.
The results of the study were published in the journal Social Science & Medicine.
