Babies help their mothers live longer:

“Scientists in recent decades have shed light on the healing properties of pregnancy, particularly fetal cell microchimerism, a phenomenon that has been shown to provide unique health benefits to a mother thanks to her unborn child.

In a book on pregnancy science released last year, science writer Jena Pinctott outlined how fetal cells have been shown to penetrate a mother’s body, including stem cells that migrate to the mother’s injuries to spur healing, in a mechanism that strongly suggests a baby’s own cells “repair and rejuvenate moms.” The young cells are believed to stay with a mother for the rest of her life.”
