Oviedo Child Care: Prenatal Brain Development

Posted on 10-06-2014


There are many aspects that are essential to your child’s early development and prenatal brain development is where it all starts. Here are some interesting facts about this stage of life:

  • Early formation: The human brain begins to form early, when the first brain cells are born just two days after conception.
  • At birth, the majority of your child’s brain cells are not connected:

When your child is born the brain has almost 100 billion neurons, almost the same number of neurons as a mature brain. These neurons are not connected but with the right stimulation they will build strong connections between brain cells. These connections are the key to maximizing your child’s brain development for future academic success.

To give your child the best support during this time, nutrition, physical health and low stress levels all play important roles. Ask your physician for a healthy meal plan with a focus on brain boosting foods and for a light exercise plan to help you stay active. Take time to relax to reduce stress and enjoy this exciting journey.
