Early Birth PTSD Link

Discussion in 'Professionally Qualified, RAMC and QARANC' started by Markintime, Jul 27, 2011.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. BBC News - Early birth stress disorder link

    This article poses a couple of interesting questions.

    Are African American women are more likely to suffer PTSD?

    Are women with PTSD more likely to produce smaller babies?
     
  2. Why is that?

    Maybe whiteys neandertal genes giving them better mental defences?
     
  3. Or perhaps it is another one of those not fully exhasutive studies where the results were decided on then the study completed to ensure it fitted what was wanted!
     
  4. I had the shit kicked out of me when I was pregnant (being in labor with broken ribs was a real hoot) and managed to produce a 9lb baby - can't say that wasn't harrowing or traumatic... I would agree with CC that the survey was probably done with an end result already in mind.
