A study issued by the University of California revealed the effects on new mothers as a result of the lack of sleep they suffer from because of their newborn children, and the effects may continue for years of their lives, according to what was reported on the Medical Express website. 


The researchers analyzed the DNA of a number of new mothers through blood samples, to determine their "biological age", which can differ from chronological age, to find that a year after birth, the biological age of mothers who slept less than seven hours a night was three to seven years older. years of those who slept seven hours or more.


The study showed that mothers who slept less than seven hours had to have a bug in the white blood cells, and thus the study found that the decline in hours sleep less than 7 hours a day increases the risk of cancer and heart disease and blood vessels and premature death.


The study indicated that the first months of sleep deprivation after childbirth can have a lasting impact on physical health, and increase the risk of age-related diseases.


The researchers discovered that with new mothers getting an extra hour of sleep, it contributed to increasing the biological life of the mother, so the study recommended new mothers to have a daytime nap and take advantage of opportunities to sleep when their child is sleeping, and accept offers of help from the family and husband.


The study found that the reduced hours of sleep for new mothers contributes to accelerated biological aging associated with sleep loss, which may increase women's health risks.
