Stress during pregnancy is bad for baby, says META-Health expert Anu Mehta

Once I read a quote, ‘A baby fills place in your heart that you never knew was empty.’ This got me thinking if pregnancy was really such an amazing experience then why is it that some of the women never have the privilege of being a mother, some of the women have to deal with real difficult pregnancy and some of them deliver babies with congenital problems. These questions bombarded my mind and I just could not make sense of the suffering that a child and the family are subjected to due to congenital disorders. I wondered if birth defects could be connected with stress.  I was remained of my own time when I had found out that my son was suffering from posterior urethral valves, reflux of urine and had a hole in the heart.
