Stressed Moms Increase Baby's Risk of Schizophrenia

Feb 08, 2008

Women who feel severely stressed at early stage are at risk of having a baby developing a schizophrenia disorder, scientists say.

Researchers at the University of Manchester analyzed data from 1,38 million babies born in Denmark between 1973 and 1995 and came to a conclusion that women who underwent stress due to the loss of a relative during a first trimester of pregnancy had as much as 67% increased risk of schizophrenia and other mental disorders.

Previous studies showed that mothers-to-be stress during pregnancy was linked to low birth weight and premature birth of a baby. In other researchers it was suggested that defects in brain structure and its functioning appear early in pregnancy, which may lead to such mental disorders as schizophrenia. These findings prove the fact that mother's psychological state has a great impact on unborn baby especially at an early stage of pregnancy.

Scientists say that though schizophrenia is triggered by other factors like genetic ones, environment in the womb can have a great impact on the development of the fetus and have long-term effects. During the first trimester of the pregnancy the protective barriers between mother and child is weak and this may lead to serious problems. However, experts say not to over-worry as the risk is quite small.

The study was published in the journal Archives of General Psychiatry.

I want to say thanks to this wonderful man, by name Doctor Chukwu, for curing my wife of her schizophrenia (brain disease). This disease the doctor referred to it as reduced or lack of ability to function normally. My wife was neglecting personal hygiene, and appears to lack emotion. She doesn't make eye contact, doesn't change facial expressions or speaks in a monotone. Also, she always loss interest in everyday activities, she socially withdraw or lack the ability to experience pleasure, she always forget things easily. When these behaviors continued constantly, I took her to the hospital, and the doctor diagnosed her of schizophrenia disease. So he gave her medications like Fluphenazine which she was taking two or three times sometimes with or without food, Aripiprazole (Abilify) and many others.
She used all this medications for a long period of time and none seems to work properly to cure her of her brain disease, I became restless and I don’t know what to do. I was reading about the disease on the internet where one person testified of this man called Doctor chukwu on how he cured them of their various diseases. So I copied the said doctor’s email and website I went through his website and saw many people testified about him, showering encomium on him, stating and thanking him for his help to cure them of their various disease. So I was still doubting the possibilities of the said doctor until i contacted one woman via her email I saw on the doctor’s website who is by name Rose Jonas she said to me that this man cured her husband of his (CJD) and she told and build up my faith not to worry at all that I should contact Dctor Chukwu, that my wife cure is rest-assured. So I key in and I
Doctor Chukwu, and after explaining to him what my wife is going through, he assured me that my wife will be normal again, after all the arrangement he prepare the herbal mixtures and send it to me in my country and I started given it to her according to the prescriptions. Behold, his herbs are very potent and it worked. His herbs cured my wife of her CJD and today I am here to say this to the world that a messiah has come to save all those suffering from CJD. \Today, I say a big thanks to Doctor Chukwu for curing my wife of her CJD. We are now happy and to crown it all, I say thanks to God for using Doctor Chukwu to cure my wife.

Jose Andrews is my name, Some people keep questioning God, asking him why he allowed Satan to put in the world deadly diseases, but they never know that anything happening in this life, is just for a particular reason. Here is my story on how I was cured of schizophrenia (Brain Disease) by a herbal doctor Uwadia Amneifo using his herbal mixture. Few months ago, I realized I had some problem with my system, and later on I begin to forget things easily. I complained to my doctor after his text he said just a little problem with me, but that soon I will be fine. He prescribed for me and I was taking medicine according to his prescription but my condition was getting worse instead of coming down. So I went back to my doctor after some time, he said am having issues with my brain, this continues gradually until it became worse and I was diagnosed of schizophrenia (Brain Disease) and this disease is same with SCJD. My doctor told me there is no cure to this disease that I have to live and die with it. It continued for one month and my system was almost shutting down before my cousin brother came to my house to visit and broke to us the news about a herbal doctor he heard about called doctor Uwadia Amenifo that cured some body of SCJD . So he explained how he heard about this herbal doctor uwadia Amenifo and the kind of terrible diseases this doctor have cured. His words were very impressing and I had to give the doctor a try. We made contact with him and he said he can cure me. So my cousin made all necessary arrangement with him, and he prepared herbs and send to me in USA. I took the herbs according to his prescription and behold to cut long story short his herbs works perfectly well, and cured me of my schizophrenia (Brain Disease). Today I am hale and healthy and evidence of my healthiness can been seen in this piece of note I wrote myself to tell the world about Herbal Doctor Uwadia Amenifo. Please if you know anyone suffering from brain disease, in a hurry contact Doctor Uwadia Amenifo on his email (doctoruwadiaamenifo@gmail.com), and his cell no is +2349052015874.
