Mums and their babies have a very special bond. Although children love their dads, it is mums whom they usually have the closest bonds and dealings. Do you suspect a reason for this added closeness with mums? Experts claim that cells from the baby’s placenta stay in the mum’s body for 38 years after she gives birth. So, this may explain why there is such a closer bond for children and the female in their lives.
- During the nine months of human gestation, fetal cells leave the placenta and enter the mother’s blood.
- Fetal cells may stall the abnormal growth of breast cells and lower the host ‘s risk of developing neurodegenerative conditions with age.
- Because fetal cell chromosomes are different from those of the mother, there is the so far unconfirmed potential for autoimmune reactions resulting from fetal cells.
“This phenomenon shows that parturition can never be one-hundred percent complete; some parts of the baby will always remain in the mother.”
