Asthma link to stress8th April 2009
Researchers say that pregnant women who suffer from stress are more likely to have a child with asthma.
The findings come from the Children of the 90s study where researchers have been working with about 6,000 families in Bristol. They found anxious mums-to-be were 60% more likely to have a baby who would develop the illness while the findings also showed that 16% of asthmatic children had mothers who reported high anxiety while pregnant. Similarly, pregnant women who were less stressed had a lower incidence rate.
