The analysis performed by Davies and colleagues in 15 January 2018 included a total of 709 pregnant women and 521 non-pregnant controls. The studies examined general cognitive function, defined "as encompassing a range of processes, including memory, attention, executive functioning, processing speed, and verbal and visuospatial abilities."They also analyzed memory, attention, and executive function which refers to the ability to plan, move with flexibility from one idea to another, problem-solve, and the power of abstraction. Each woman was tested with a series of tasks including a digit span test where they were asked to memorise numbers in a line. Unpredictably, the results found that compared to non-pregnant women, expectant mothers performed worse on tasks measuring attention, decision-making, planning and memory. In addition, the scientists also said that baby brain affects women differently at various points of their pregnancy. While the decline appeared to start during the first trimester, it then stabilized from the middle to the end of the pregnancy.1
