Helen Christensen, PhD, of The Australian National University, says, "If you read pregnancy manuals and listen to pregnant mothers -- yes, there is such a thing as pregnancy brain or momnesia. And. Memory lapses during pregnancy and lack of concentration are common complaints among women, but unfounded, according to a new : Jeanie Lerche Davis.

Pregnancy brain is real for many expectant moms – between 50 and 80 percent of pregnant women report having memory lapses or focus problems. Exactly what causes this brain fog during pregnancy is unclear, though research is ongoing.

verbal memory retention during pregnancy was not. According to studies online, the third trimester is the worst time for memory during pregnancy. During these three months, the female is 15% more like to experience memory loss or lapse than women who are not pregnant.

Some doctors believe this loss of memory during pregnancy could be attributed to the rise in oxytocin levels. The term refers to memory problems, poor concentration and absent-mindedness reported by many women during pregnancy and early motherhood. A recent review of 20 studies assessing more than pregnant and nonpregnant women concluded that general cognitive functioning, memory and executive functioning were significantly poorer in pregnant.

N2 - Objectives: Many women report declines in cognitive function during pregnancy, but attempts to empirically evaluate such changes have yielded inconsistent results. We aimed to determine whether pregnancy is associated with objective declines in cognitive functioning, and to assess the progression of any declines during pregnancy.

We aimed to determine whether pregnancy is associated with objective declines in cognitive functioning, and to assess the progression of any declines during pregnancy.

Study design: We undertook a meta-analysis, applying a random effects model, of 20 studies that have reported quantitative relationships between pregnancy and changes in cognition. effects during pregnancy has been reported,2, other investigations have found little or no change.3, This inconsis-tency was also evident in the most recent meta-analysis of reports on the impact of pregnancy on memory (),16 which found evidence for deficits in some, but not all, components of memory.

Future investigations of how pregnancy influences naturalistic prospective memory, as well as exploration of delayed intention in the lives of pregnant women, may help to describe pregnancy-induced cognitive reorganization, and explain the subjective memory impairment often reported by.

Although until recently much of the evidence for pregnancy-related deficits in memory was anecdotal or based on self-report, a number of studies have now been conducted that have tested whether these subjective appraisals of memory difficulties reflect objective impairment.

Women frequently report problems with attention, concentration, and memory throughout pregnancy and in the early postpartum period. 1 One such account 2 proposed the use of the term benign encephalopathy of pregnancy. The association between reproductive functioning and cognition, particularly memory, is well established but does not explain a pregnancy-related memory decline.

Many of such reports were anecdotal or based on self-assessment. However, recent studies indicate that memory can be significantly impaired during pregnancy and the immediate post-childbirth period. Therefore, some mothers can develop memory loss during pregnancy (also called ‘Baby brain.

Memory processes can be profoundly affected by life experiences. In particular, stress has proved to be a major modulator of memory function.1–4 However, we should bear in mind that stress is an extremely wide concept that ranges from situations that require moderate adaptations from the individual to circumstances that can be overwhelmingly adverse and persistent.

Diminished concentration and memory is self-reported by a substantial proportion of women in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy (e.g., 64%, Parsons and Redman, ), a phenomenon termed gestational memory impairment (GMI; Brett and Baxendale, ).GMI is poorly understood in terms of confirming the existence, timing, nature and severity of symptoms through the.
