Chocolate treats and sentimental cards may sweeten mom’s belly and heart this Mother’s Day, but it turns out motherhood also goes right to the noggin, with plenty of research showing how having kids, and even the process of childbirth, can change a mama’s brain.
Recent research has revealed some of the changes that take place in women’s brains during motherhood, and experts say that understanding how a mom’s brain works could help them figure out what motivates moms to care for their babies.
“With this research, we hope to better understand how to support moms who don’t naturally experience a brain reward response when they interact with their baby,” said Dr. Lane Strathearn, a developmental pediatrician at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas.
