Pregnancy and childbirth involve maternal brain adaptations that promote attachment to and protection of the newborn. Using brain imaging and machine learning, we provide evidence for a positive relationship between number of childbirths and a 'younger-looking' brain in 12,021 women, which could not be explained by common genetic variation. The findings demonstrate that parity can be linked to brain health later in life.
