Less Children More Health and Happiness for Mothers

Parent Interventions

Giving birth to lesser number of children decreases the chances of a woman to be affected by cardiovascular disease (CVD) later in life, according to a new research report.

The report points out that increased number of births may cause variations in glucose, lipid levels and weight leading to increased risk of being affected by cardiovascular disease and coronary heart disease in later stages of life. Multiple pregnancies also increase oxidative stress, low-grade inflammation and other causative factors of heart ailments. The report recommends women having undergone multiple pregnancies to do more frequent cardio-vascular screening to check for CVD or CHD possibilities.

In less developed and emerging economies, lesser births are advocated to control population and also for better financial well-being of families. However, now there is a more compelling reason from medical research that should make couples opt for lesser number of children. The longer the mother stays healthy, the better it will be for the offspring to ensure their balanced physical and emotional growth.
