Mother's bones do not remain the same after childbirth - research

Studies on Macaques have found that after giving birth to children, there are many changes in the bones of females, some of which are even permanent. By the way, this study has no direct relation with humans. But scientists believe that its results can be helpful in the case of humans.

In macaque mothers, permanent changes in the bones were observed after the birth.

Changes were also found in the amount of calcium, phosphorus and magnesium in them.

This study can prove to be a kind of direction for humans.

After the birth of a child, there are many physical changes in the mother. In Primate Mothers, this change is highest in their bones. A new study on macaques has found that pregnancy causes permanent scarring in their bone structure. And apart from this there are many major changes too. This research underscores the need to understand the importance of what kind of changes occur in bones after the birth of a child. This study was not done on humans by the way, nor do its results directly apply to humans. But its results can be useful for humans in many ways.

Macaques and humans - part of the primate group

 Macaques and humans both come in the group of primates, which used to have a common ancestor 600 million years ago. In such a situation, this study can be seen in some ways by connecting it with humans. By the way, many types of post-pregnancy problems of B. Macaques have been found similar to those of humans. But still, the difference between macaques and humans is also not less, which cannot be ignored at all.

Major Events Bone

Effects This study has shown how major events in life have a general effect on the bone structure of primates.

Changes in Bone In

primates, the fleshy body appears to develop on a strong basis. But their bones are actually moving. They widen throughout life, and there are annual fluctuations in their growth, which are often influenced by lifestyle factors. Where bone density may decrease with age, especially after menstruation, but throughout life, weakness, dietary climate, and pregnancy can leave permanent scars in calcium-rich tissues that may be known later.

Decreased calcium in bones

During pregnancy in women in humans, evidence suggests that the mother's body draws a lot of calcium from her bones. This happens more when the woman has not taken a nutritious diet in sufficient quantity, has lost weight or has low bone density. When the mother feeds the baby, calcium comes back in her blood so that calcium rich milk can be made.

Need for deeper study

Scientists have found a way to detect the condition after this and have found that the problem occurs for some time after stopping the feeding. In forensics and archaeology, whether someone has been pregnant or not is a controversial issue only through examination of bones. Today, even though many methods have been developed to know this. But researchers say that now is the time to learn more deeply about bones.

Signals in the Bone

Researchers say their study shows that bone structure responds to changes in fertility levels even after fertility is over. Apart from this, these results again confirm that the organs of females have a significant effect on producing children. At the same time, it can also be said that the evidence of fertility is written in the bones for a lifetime.

In this study, seven earth rhesus macaques were researched, out of which four were female and two were male. Major differences were seen in their thigh bone, which led the researchers to know the comparative changes between pregnancy and feeding time. Apart from this, the density of calcium and phosphate was also found to be related to birth. In the study published in PLOS ONE, the researchers need more research on this, but it should be studied on its human relationship and angle with it.
