Shocking Study Revealed: Stress may Alter Baby’s Sex in Womb!by Ankit Sharma Women's Clinic
If you are pregnant, then your first priority is to stay happy and healthy. Do you know mental and physical stress during these nine months can influence your baby’s sex? According to a new study, physical stress can raise the risk of delivering premature baby.
Researchers studied 187 healthy pregnant women, ages 18-45 years. About 17 per cent of them were depressed, mentally stressed, and in anxiety. About 16 per cent of them showed physical stress such as high blood pressure and high calorie intake.
Women with physical or mental stress are more likely to deliver a baby girl.
Classically, around 105 baby boys are born for every 100 baby girls. In this study, researchers found a surprising result. The male-to-female ratio was 4:9 in the group with physical stress and was 2:3 in the group with mental stress.
In both cases, baby girls were born to women who were stressed physically and mentally.
The 9/11 phenomenon
Many researchers have observed the above pattern in various tragic events, especially the 9/11 terrorist attack that happened in New York City.
Male births relatively decreased.
