Stress during pregnancy can increase the likelihood of a child being affected by a personality disorder. A recent study shows that children of women who have experienced stressful situations during sweet expectation are 10 times more likely to develop such a disorder by the age of 30.
Even moderate stress, according to researchers, can affect the baby's development and continue even after birth. More than 3,600 pregnant women in Finland were asked about their stress levels and doctors followed their children's situation closely.
The results of the study showed how important it is for mothers to have access to mental health support. Other important factors, such as the way a child is raised, the financial situation of the family, and the trauma experienced during childhood have also contributed to the development of personality disorders and may have played a role.
Personality disorders that include emotional instability, paranoia or being non-social are thought to affect one in 20 people.
