Researchers at Indiana University and Sweden's Karolinska Institute say babies born to mothers who suffered a stressful event before conception are 53% more likely to die before they turn 1. Stresses such as losing a loved one or financial worries before conception can change hormone levels during pregnancy affecting nutrition to the fetus, scientists say. The study, however, found no link between stress during pregnancy and infant mortality.
