Your Baby’s Brain. Before you can fully understand fetal brain development, it is important to understand the different parts of your baby’s brain. Overall, there are five different regions of the brain that scientists are familiar with. These include the cerebrum, cerebellum, brain stem, pituitary gland, and hypothalamus. You can get it from a prenatal vitamin or take it as a separate supplement. Eat cooked fish 2 to 3 times a week.
Fish – especially fatty fish like salmon – contain omega-3 fatty acids, which research suggests boosts your baby’s brain development during pregnancy and into childhood. Brain development in the third trimester is marked by the rapid development of neurons in the brain and explosive growth. Your baby’s brain will triple in size during this time, growing from a little over 3 ounces to almost 11 ounces at birth. The cerebrum will begin to develop grooves and ridges and separate into the left brain and right brain. By now, the fetal nervous system is developed enough so your baby is startled by loud noises outside the womb — and may even turn his head toward the sound of your voice!
Another exciting development: At 28 weeks, fetal brainwave activity features sleep cycles, including REM (the stage when dreaming occurs). Third trimester: Baby’s brain grows. Promoting the development of a healthy brain can start even before pregnancy.
For example, a healthy diet and the right nutrients like sufficient folic acid will promote a healthy pregnancy and a healthy nervous system in the growing baby. Vaccinations can protect pregnant women from infections that can harm the brain of the unborn baby. While experts say baby brain development is still largely a mystery, what we do know is just how great a role natural parenting instincts can play in putting your baby on the fast track to success. This development is the foundation of your baby’s intelligence for the rest of their lives.
In this section, we’ll discuss how your baby’s brain grows during pregnancy, and what you can do to protect and support that growth. The Fetal Brain. The prenatal brain development starts at just over two weeks in, with the formation of the neural plate.
Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids are responsible for healthy fetal brain development in a variety of ways including brain cell growth and function. One of the reasons pregnant women aren’t getting enough EFAs is because fish is a primary source of Omega 3 fatty acids. Helpful, trusted answers from doctors: Dr. Choate on fetal brain development stages: If you mean better brain development in a baby, you need plenty of dha (an essential fatty acid that’s a component of fish oil, along with epa). It’s also needed for healthy brain maintenance in adults.
Your body can make dha from flax and blue-green algae, but not very efficiently. Before your baby is even born their brain cells develop rapidly developing billions if not trillions of connections among themselves. This interesting insight dictates how your baby will develop as a person and how they act or think as a result.
