Stem cell research has always been the topic of hot debate. Stem cells

When I was growing up my mother never talked about infertility problems –
most moms that I knew never talked about sex or sexual matters and
fertility would fall into that category.
Not that many years ago women in their 40s were considered late in life
and having a baby was a mistake at that age, not a choice. If women are
changing and fertility is changing, how long will it be before age is no
longer a factor?
When a couple fights the battle of infertility they are lost in the moment, the fight, the struggle and – hopefully – the success.
The answer to this question is one every man and woman facing
infertility must deal with at some point or another. For me it happened
the minute I walked out of the doctor's office. He had just told me that
I was infertile at the age of 20.
Infertility is not a word anyone wants to hear, but it is a word many

but being told you are infertile does not always mean you’ll never have
According to the Global Action Report on Preterm Birth, more than 15 million infants are born before their due dates.That translates to about one out of every 10 births.
Older parents are just as capable of giving birth to and raising
children, but what does pushing that parenting clock do to the
foundation of a child’s life. Is older parenting killing generations?
If there is one thing women feel it is the tick-tock of that maternal clock. For some women it starts around the mid-20s or early 30s. For other women it starts much later – closer to 40. No matter when it starts in your mind, your body has a very different idea.
The special care for my premature newborns started immediately after birth. Twin A was unable to maintain a healthy body temperature so she was under a heating unit for a few hours after birth.
Preemies are like tiny little creatures with all ten fingers and toes. With that tiny little body comes a tiny little appetite. Some new twin moms choose to breastfeed and others choose to bottle feed.
I have been feeling pregnant, I had my period May,24th and lasted 7 days, 10 days after my period was over, I started spotting a very light pinkish brown blood with creamy discharge, that lasted fo
It appears that the children and grandchildren of men who become fathers between the late 30s and early 50s live longer lives than children born to younger dads.
A woman who is diagnosed with cancer during pregnancy can carry the fetus to term and deliver a healthy infant.
The standard of care for premature labor has typically been to place the
pregnant woman on bed rest; limiting activity for the remaining weeks
New research shows that a woman’s pre-pregnancy preconception weight is a better indicator of whether her child will be overweight or obese than her weight during pregnancy is.
If mom gains too much weight during pregnancy, baby will grow up weighing too much and possibly suffers from weight-related health concerns well into adulthood.
You can find everything from school clothes to marriage advice to
fertility help on Facebook, but is Facebook really the answer to
infertility or is it killing fertility in the first place?
Much of the increased risk of childhood obesity is associated with maternal weight – not the c-section.
