Kids Born Late May Have Higher Level of Cognitive Ability
Findings of a recent study published in JAMA Pediatrics suggest that children who were born at 41 weeks seem to have higher levels of cognitive ability compared to those who were born at 39 or 40 weeks. But children born late also may have lower physical functioning.
The study shows that if a child is born full term, they can have better health and cognitive ability while growing up and as they become adults.
Scientists also note that those kids, who are born late, might have an increased risk of health complications. Still they need to have more information about the long-term cognitive and physical consequences of birth after the full term.
Researchers from Northwestern University in Evanston, USA, examined records of more than 1.4 million children for this research.
