Drive 15/01/2018

If you've ever done strange things during pregnancy, don't worry - new research says you're not going mad.

Researchers at Deakin University in Australia have found some interesting results on baby brain.

They undertook a meta-analysis of 20 studies involving more than 1,200 women and found overall cognitive functioning was poorer in pregnant women than in non-pregnant women.

  • Four out of five women experience the condition
  • They still don’t know what causes it

Registered Psychologist Sara Chatwin joins Lloyd Burr to discuss the study.
