The Effect of Crying on the Fetus

1. Fluctuating Hormones Three hormones—estrogen, progesterone, and human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) are produced in the body. Changes in the levels of these hormones can transmit varied signals to the brain that can then have an impact on a pregnant woman’s moods. They are primarily responsible for stoking pregnancy emotions and making her cry without any provocation. Progesterone levels, in particular, tend to be on the higher side during the last two months of the pregnancy, leaving the woman quite vulnerable.
