Your best friend could influence your maternity
Choose well your friends could be a decision much more important than you imagine. Not only influencing your decisions to go for a walk but in all aspects of your life, from what you eat to your pregnancy, and has been published by the American Sociological Association.
Experts say that pregnancy is contagious
In a study conducted by Nicoletta Baldo and Nicola Barban, a doctor at the University of Bocconi in Italy and a sociologist at the University of Groningen, respectively, were found as a result that if you of two friends one is pregnant, the probability that the other will do the same increases significantly.
To give the result they took as a sample to a thousand 700 women who were friends from 15 to 30 years. We compared its behavior, geographical location, income and education. The average age for having children was 27 years old, and it was observed that the participants were comparing themselves with their friends and felt more pressured to have children if their friends already had. In addition, there is a greater likelihood of maintaining a friendship if you both are experiencing motherhood at the same time.
You can still get vaccinated against the infection
The authors of the study emphasize that this effect is not due to a conscious decision among friends to have children at the same time, but is rather an example of the strength of their friendship.
However, this does not mean that if your friend start to have children, your instinct will be to do the same. It is only a probability of how some girls react according to their environment.
