Canadian researchers say stress during pregnancy could affect pregnancies for several generations.

They studied generations of rats- and found those subjected to stress late in pregnancy- had daughters and granddaughters that had shorter pregnancies.
The study also found other signs of stress in rats born to stressed grandmothers or mothers- including a lower birth weight and higher glucose levels.
