Washington: A mother’s high blood pressure during pregnancy may have an effect on her child’s thinking skills all the way into old age, researchers say.For the study, researchers from the University of Helsinki looked at medical records for the mother’s blood pressure in pregnancy for 398 men who were born between 1934 and 1944.The men’s thinking abilities were tested at the age of 20 and then again at an average age of 69. Tests measured language skills, math reasoning and visual and spatial relationships.“High blood pressure and related conditions such as preeclampsia complicate about 10 percent of all pregnancies and can affect a baby’s environment in the womb,” Katri Raikkonen, study author, said.
