This study, conducted by researchers at the University of Kent, saw 296 women who were born to see if there is a relationship between them type their kids and occurrence baby blues.
Previously, there was a relationship between inflammation and the development of depressive symptoms, and because the development of male fetuses and the occurrence of complications after birth are two causes associated with increased inflammation, the researchers tried to see with this study if there could be a connection with the appearance of blues for children.
Their results showed that women who gave birth to boys were 71-79% more likely to develop depression than women who gave birth to girls.
In addition, the results showed that women who suffered complications during delivery he recorded increased risk 174% suffer from a tiny child compared to women who gave birth without complications.
However, it should be noted that although women sensitive to anxiety and stress should be exposed to an increased risk of developing child blues, the study showed that the risk of complications after a difficult delivery was lower.
Researchers explained this because of their history, the mental disorders of these women are known and should be better taken into account by the family and doctors. It suggests that good postpartum monitoring maybe an effective way warn baby blues.
