The researchers noted that men go through certain biological changes when they become fathers
Ramat Gan - Putting aside the songs of football fans that their still unborn son, while the mom's belly, sings as schools, regular women notice changes in her husband's or partner's behavior as we approach the day of her birth.
As fathers, both from personal experience, writes Linda Guedes, New Scientist magazine columnist, "beginning, barely concealing the anxiety, to wonder what awaits them at the time of the woman giving birth to him in the weeks immediately following."
"I think with this is quite normal as we approach the 'big day' but, while I go through dramatic biological changes, I wonder if hormones are starting to 'bomb' the father of the future," says Guedes constantly dedicated to the birth column titled "Bumpology ".
Scientists, in fact, some argue that the biological changes and the men go when they become fathers.
Thus, Professor Ruth Feldman, a neurologist and an endocrinologist at the University, "Bar-Ilan" in Ramat Gan, Israel, found that in women, but men and oxytocin levels rise, "tenderness and hormones gift" when they become parents.
It seems that this phenomenon is associated with both behavior and the simple fact of parenthood: fathers in which more oxytocin levels rose more to play and have fun with their children, and sticks closer to them than fathers with a lower concentration of oxytocin.
In another study, whose results recently published in the journal Psyćoneuroendocrinology, Professor Feldman noted that physical play with children significantly increased levels of oxytocin in fathers as a beneficial impact on their overall behavior.
"This finding emphasizes the need to create conditions that foster care parents' biological paternity base. It is advisable that women in this remind you a wife or partner spends sleepless nights because the baby could not stop crying," Feldman advises.
However, increased secretion of oxytocin is not the only hormonal changes through which the father after the birth.
It was found that in his declining testosterone levels - probably as a warning that thins your going out with friends, "the buzz" or go to the game and encourage them to focus more on family.
For endocrinologists say, as the man grows more testosterone, the less willing and ready to "bahce with children."
But that's not all: Professor Feldman has revealed that the level of the hormone prolactin, known for its crucial role in breastfeeding, and also slightly increased in men in the days immediately before the woman's labor.
Therefore, men with elevated levels of prolactin in the body is much more caring and willing to help with calming the child crying.
Professor Feldman recently in the journal Hormones and behavior published a study in which he explored this relationship in detail.
It measures the levels of oxytocin and prolactin in 43 men who became fathers for the first time in a period of six months after birth.
It was shown that elevated levels of prolactin in connection with his father's desire that the child explore and play intensively with new toys.
However, studies have shown that, fortunately, with a fairly small part of the male population means developing some kind of "phantom pregnancy", known as "Kuvadov syndrome," a lot of controversial diagnosis based on symptoms such as weight gain, morning vomiting, insomnia and abdominal pain.
"After all, a happy circumstance that 'Kuvadov syndrome' rare 'attack' for first-time fathers - who will still izmorenoj woman from childbirth to make tea and cakes, imply distracted pillow under his head, instead of running it to the baby with a bottle of milk and remove the weight from circuits, "concluded its somewhat humorous columnist Linda Guedes.
