1. Don’t overstress as this can affect your baby’s development.

The brain is the first organ that starts forming in the womb. And while experiencing short-term stress won’t impact the baby later in life, long-term stress might cause a series of adverse effects. Children are more likely to develop attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD), and even depression as teenagers.

If the mother-to-be experiences extreme stress, the baby’s brain won’t develop to its full potential, which can create an adverse long-term effect on memory and learning.
