After giving birth to a child, there are major physical and mental changes in the mother. That kind of transformation on the father has always been skeptical. Usually, there is no visible change in the father. But it is not. New research has shown that men who become fathers for the first time have major mental changes. His mind shrinks. They start thinking more about themselves and their families. Their mind wanders and they start weaving many dreams.

However, this change in the father is much less than the change in the mother. In research published in Cerebral Cortex, Magdalena Martinez Garcia of the Gregoria Maran Health Research Institute states that a year before fatherhood and after fatherhood, MRIs of men were done. This showed that after having a child, their brain gradually starts shrinking. This puts pressure on some part of the brain.

Change in mind increases attachment to child
According to research, the most pressure falls on the cortex, the back part of the brain. Here information reaches through the retina and the information is converted into understanding. This change in men increases attachment for the child. In this, the pattern of mental change is similar to that of the mother, but its speed is comparatively much less.

These same researchers did another research, which was published in Nature Neuroscience in the year 2017. In this, the speed of change was seen in men who became fathers for the second time compared to the first time. Garcia says – This change is great. This makes the couple better parents. The sense of responsibility also increases in men. This is the reason why they do not find taking care of children a burden. They take care of their child together.

There is a distance between the parents after the birth of the child.
However, these changes have an impact on their mutual relationship. They experience mutual distance for about a year after having a child and the child becomes their link. But this change in the mind of the father in the upbringing of the children brings a big change in his personality. The research selected 20 American and 20 Spanish men who were soon to become fathers.

Changes in the mother begin during pregnancy
Researchers also studied the mother-child attachment after giving birth to the child. Some questions were also asked to him in this. There is shrinkage in the mind of the mother too. This determines the extent of attachment to his child. The more the brain shrinks, the greater is its attachment to the child. This process in the mother starts even before the birth of the child.
