Folic acid in pregnancy lowers autism risk in baby
Prenatal folic acid supplements appear to reduce the risk for autistic spectrum disorders. It is estimated that about 1 in 88 children in the U.S. have been identified with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

Prenatal intervention may reduce learning deficit in Down syndrome children
Mice with a condition that serves as a laboratory model for Down syndrome perform better on memory and learning tasks as adults if they were treated before birth with neuroprotective peptides, according to researchers at the National Institutes of Health.

Mercury exposure in pregnant women connected to ADHD in children
ADHD or Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder affects approximately ten percent of children worldwide, yet its causes are not well understood. Now, a study led by Susan Korrick, MD, MPH, of Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH), and Sharon Sagiv, PhD, MPH, of Boston University School of Public Health, and published in the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine, links low-level prenatal mercury exposure with a greater risk of ADHD-related behaviors.

Prenatal exposure to insecticide linked to decreases in cognitive functioning at age 7
Researchers from the Columbia Center for Children's Environmental Health at the Mailman School of Public Health report evidence of a link between prenatal exposure to the insecticide chlorpyrifos and deficits in IQ and working memory at age seven.

Indoor coal use may impair childhood growth
Children raised in homes using indoor coal for cooking or heating appear to be about a half-inch shorter at age 36 months than those in households using other fuel sources.

Paracetamol use in pregnancy may lead to childhood asthma in baby
Evidence suggesting that the risk of childhood asthma associated with prenatal paracetamol exposure may depend on antioxidant genes in the mother has been found by a team of UK scientists.

Prenatal exposure to pesticides linked to attention problems
Children who were exposed to organophosphate pesticides while still in their mother's womb were more likely to develop attention disorders years later, according to a new study by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley.

Each pound at birth lowers risk of developing TB
Researchers at the University of Michigan looked at how much protection additional birth weight added against developing the disease years later. They found that every 1.1 pounds of birth weight decreases the risk of developing tuberculosis later by 46 percent among identical twins.

Ultrasound enhances noninvasive Down syndrome tests
The addition of a "genetic sonogram" maximizes the accuracy of non-invasive testing for Down syndrome, revealed by US researchers.

Lead, tobacco smoke raises ADHD risk
Children exposed prenatally to tobacco smoke and during childhood to lead face a particularly high risk for ADHD, revealed by researchers.

Pregnancy is safe for multiple sclerosis patients
Pregnant women with multiple sclerosis are only slightly more likely to have cesarean deliveries and babies with a poor prenatal growth rate than women who do not have multiple sclerosis (MS), revealed by US researchers.

Low birth weight linked to diabetes gene CDKAL1
Gene previously shown to be involved in the development of type 2 diabetes also predisposes children to having a lower birth weight, revealed by researchers.

Multivitamins in pregnancy avoid underweight babies
Prenatal multivitamin supplements are associated with a significantly reduced risk of babies with a low birth weight (underweight babies) compared with prenatal iron-folic acid supplementation, found a new study in the Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ).

Meth use during pregnancy linked to abnormal brain in baby
A first of its kind study examining the effects of methamphetamine use during pregnancy has found the drug appears to cause abnormal brain development in children.

Pregnancy test at home for better prenatal care
The simple intervention of providing women who are having unprotected sex with a home pregnancy test could have a substantial impact on the health of potential newborns, according to a Michigan State University study.

Second hand smoke raises fertility problems in women
Women exposed to second hand smoke, either as adults or children, were significantly more likely to face fertility problems and suffer miscarriages, revealed by researchers from University of Rochester Medical Center.

New prenatal test for Down syndrome less risky than amniocentesis
Pregnant women worried about their babies' genetic health face a tough decision: get prenatal gene testing and risk miscarriage, or skip the tests and miss the chance to learn of genetic defects before birth.

Increased risk of pregnancy problems in Asian-white
Pregnant women who are part of an Asian-white couple face an increased risk of gestational diabetes as compared with couples in which both partners are white, according to a new study from Lucile Packard Children's Hospital and the Stanford University School of Medicine.

ANMUM Materna prenatal milk recalled from China
Fonterra China today announced a voluntary recall of one batch of prenatal milk sold in China under the ANMUM Materna brand name.

Childhood lead exposure is a risk factor for criminal behavior
Lead exposure during childhood is associated with adult criminal behaviour, including violent crime, revealed by researchers in this week's PLoS Medicine. Childhood lead exposure is a purported risk factor for antisocial behavior, but prior studies either relied on indirect measures of exposure or did not follow participants into adulthood to examine the relationship between lead exposure and criminal activity in young adults.

First-born babies' have higher asthma and allergy rates
First-born children are at higher risk of developing asthma and allergy because of different conditions they experience in the uterus, revealed by researchers.

Prenatal starvation may lead to addiction later in life
Babies conceived during a period of famine are at risk of developing addictions later in life, and a range of chronic disorders including physical conditions such as coronary heart disease, and psychiatric ones such as schizophrenia and clinical depression.

Infants with birthmarks received less oxygen in womb
A hemangioma is a benign tumor of cells that line blood vessels, appearing during the first few weeks of life as a large birthmark or lesion. A study published in Pediatric Dermatology reveals that a disturbance of oxygen depletion was found in placentas of babies who developed infantile hemangioma (IH).
