    A pregnant woman has had her baby forcibly removed by caesarean section by social workers. Essex social services obtained a High Court order against the woman that allowed her to be forcibly sedated and her child to be taken from her womb. **SNIP** The baby girl, now 15 months old, is still in the care of social services, who are refusing to give her back to the mother, even though she claims to have made a full recovery.

    LONDON (WTVR) – Striking new MRI images show that for twins, sibling rivalry starts early–even before birth. Researchers in London were trying to find out more about a rare blood disease that can complicate the pregnancies for women carrying twins, when they captured video of what appears to be two fetuses pushing each other as they try to make more room. Researchers at London’s Center for Fetal Care were studying a potentially deadly condition called twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome. It only occurs in identical twins, when the blood supply from one flows into the other. It can cause one twin to...

    A mother is suing the obstetrician who she claims misdiagnosed her pregnancy as ectopic and injected her foetus with an abortant, resulting in birth defects. Thirty-five-year-old Rachel Schoger of Caldwell, Idaho, says she was four weeks five days pregnant with her daughter, Seraphine, when her doctor injected her foetus with chemotherapy drug methotrexate in 2006. Two weeks later, the baby was found inside the uterus. And against all odds, Seraphine made it through term. But the little girl will never lead a normal life, her mother says, after she was born without reproductive organs or a rectum as a result...

    While the citizens of Western civilizations have been preoccupied with their own selfish interests, those of the Islamic world have been busy populating a world their children and grandchildren will control. As you will see in the video below, America, Canada, and Europe, the citizens have been limiting the number of children in their families. Personally, I believe the reasons they chose to limit the number of their offspring are purely selfish. Women want to have a career, and that is difficult to do if they are having children every 2 or 3 years. As for the men, they...

    Infants With Birthmarks Received Less Oxygen In Womb ScienceDaily (Jan. 9, 2008) — A hemangioma is a benign tumor of cells that line blood vessels, appearing during the first few weeks of life as a large birthmark or lesion. A new study reveals that a disturbance of oxygen depletion was found in placentas of babies who developed infantile hemangioma (IH). Researchers reviewed placental samples from 26 pregnancies with babies who weighed less than 3.5 pounds, 13 consisting of newborns who developed IH after birth and 13 healthy preterm infants who did not have IH. Only one of the infants without...

    The Socialist Democrat’s Creed – “Doom and Gloom from Womb to Tomb” I wanted to address the negativity that some Americans have made such a large part of their way of life. I have observed that more Americans thrive on negative news about America. These Americans previously predicated negative news. The negative news appears to provide some ego satisfaction when it occurs. On closer observation, I discovered a link between the liberal’s thirst for celebrating all things negative about America and the media’s quest to satisfy that thirst. The liberals and the media also express a desire for America to...

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A jury on Friday decided that a woman convicted of killing an expectant mother and cutting her baby from her womb should receive the death penalty. Jurors deliberated for more than five hours before recommending the sentence for Lisa Montgomery. Prosecutors say a judge will sentence Montgomery, but is obligated to abide by the jury's recommendation. Montgomery, 39, was convicted Monday of kidnapping and killing Bobbie Jo Stinnett on Dec. 16, 2004, in the victim's home in the northwest Missouri town of Skidmore. She was arrested the next day in Melvern, Kan., where she was showing...

    The world's first successful womb transplant will take place next year, doctors say today. Dr Giuseppe Del Priore, from New York Downtown Hospital, has been given the go-ahead to carry out the operation and claims to have found a number of potential donors. Dr Del Priore said that while the would-be recipient would have to go through months of counselling and tests, if the right patient was identified today he expected to be able to carry out the procedure next year. If the operation can be perfected for humans, it could help thousands of women with Rokitansky syndrome, a rare...

Within days, her premature girl was located in intensive care at a public hospital, and the woman who had shown up with the baby _ covered in blood and saying she had given birth in a taxi _ was arrested along with four others.

My younger sister's favorite was "The Celestial Maiden" and she begged me to read it to her over and over again. In the tale a poor Japanese woman prays for a child. One day she finds a tiny maiden lying on a leaf in her garden. She takes the maiden into her home and cares for her, happy that her prayers have been granted. As nightfall approaches, the maiden reveals that she is a celestial princess who must return home before...

    It was a crime so horrible people find it hard to imagine -- the theft of a fetus cut from its dying mother's womb. Last week's slaying of Bobbie Jo Stinnett by a woman who pretended to befriend her over their mutual love of pedigreed dogs has captured world attention. "Womb-snatch killer," blared a headline in Australia. "Womb-theft baby home" said a headline in South Africa. But as grisly as the slaying of the pregnant 23-year-old woman and kidnapping of her unborn baby was, it's not the first such crime. Two people were sentenced to death in Illinois for the...

    Pioneering scanning techniques have produced astonishing images from inside the womb which show babies apparently smiling and crying. Experts believe the breakthrough could lead to advances in baby health for a whole range of conditions, including Down's Syndrome. The pictures offer a new insight into foetal behaviour. The ultra-sound scanning techniques capture images which show the foetuses yawn, blink, suck their fingers and seem to cry and smile. Up to now, doctors did not think infants made such expressions until after birth and believed they learned to smile by copying their mother. The procedure has been pioneered by London obstetrician...

    What your baby dreams about could be fatal. A new study shows when infants dream about being in the womb it could lead to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). It's the leading cause of infant deaths for babies less than 1 year old. The dreams make babies believe they are in the womb and their mother is giving them oxygen, so they don't need to breathe. More research is being done to see if baby dreams are a cause of SIDS.

    A test which can measure the electrical signals in the foetal brain could one day help doctors protect babies from damage sustained in the womb. It is one of the first times that the activity of the brain has been measured, and showed that foetuses could even respond to a bright light shining through their mothers' abdomen. The research, carried out by scientists at the University of Arkansas, in the US, used a technique called magnetoencephalography (MEG). Nerve activity in the brain involves tiny electrical impulses, and this technique relies on the principle that even the smallest of these creates...
