Most Moms will say that sometimes they still feel like their babies are a part of them even after they are toddlers. This has always been thought of as simply an expression, but now geneticists are finding out that this is literally true. When mothers say they feel their child

is a part of them, scientists can detect physical proof of genetic material of these women’s babies still in their bodies years later. This unique genetic material is something that has existed in other mammals for thousands of years and can affect Mom for better or worse, such as helping her heal more quickly from wounds, but also may lead to a higher risk of catching a disease like cancer. More studies are needed to try and understand why this is happening, but wtf, it is true!
