Did you know that your brain actually changes after becoming a mommy?

Are you a mom? Then you must be having a “mom brain” and perhaps you would have blamed it for a delayed decision, an overlooked appointment, or a slight emotional collapse at any time in your life. 

As the mother of an infant and a new-born, “mom brain” senses like a new normal: I am scatter-brained, distracted, and sure to get unbelievably emotive. Viewing movies related to a child’s tragedy is simply not acceptable, and any bulletin or newscast showing kids’ suffering dives mommies into a sensitive nose-dive.

Some individuals are quite delicate in nature, and certainly this is not unusual to find in this world. 

So what actually is it? Is “mom brain” just a justification mommies use when experiencing a clutter, or does this new role truly shake them?

In fact, latest researches recommend that a female’s mind in reality changes after giving birth for the first time which automatically stimulates in them a caring nature for her baby. 

Scholars from the "University of Barcelona" scanned the brains of a group of women before and after giving birth, and discovered alterations in the brain structure that were lifelong and enduring for a minimum two years period. Certainly, these deviations were specific to the portions of the brain that were most energetic when the women were observing images of their children. 

Though, advance study is essential to pin specifically what these variations mean and how they shake mothers’ conducts. 

In another similar study of scanning first-time mothers and fathers’ brains, it was disclosed that the activity in the amygdala amplifies, which is the part of the brain in control for emotive processing in both parents. This was observed especially in those fathers who were the main caretakers of their infants. 

So, the act of parenting itself can root similar alterations in fathers, or perhaps even in guardians who are occupied in nurturing their kids.

Investigators have also guessed that Oxycontin is a hormone existent in mommies during labor and pregnancy and can play a significant role in protecting women from developing bad memoirs about the experience. 

A major part of the “mom brain” possibly emerges with being shocked by the challenging responsibilities that attack the same space where old duties still exist.
