    A gender reveal party held Saturday in Mexico never stopped — even for a plane crash. A couple had decided to hire a plane as part of their gender reveal festivities that took place Saturday in San Pedro, Sinaloa, Mexico, according to the U.K. Daily Mail. The couple waited by a large display sign that read, “Oh Baby.” A video posted to X, formerly called Twitter, showed the plane zooming low, dropping pink smoke over the assembled guests to show that the baby would be a girl. A Piper PA-25-235 Pawnee aircraft (XB-ABM) collapsed its left wing and crashed while...

    A transgender, queer man who gave birth to a healthy boy last year says he feels isolated among the LGBTQ+ community, questioning, “where do I fit?” according to a report. “Every time I walk into a room, I feel alone,” Ja’Mel Ware said during a workshop attended by nonprofit news site The 19th. Ware, from Atlanta, gave birth to his child in May 2022. But he said has struggled to fit in the LGBTQ+ community as a new father who is also transgender. “It’s like, where do I fit? Because a lot of trans men don’t want to be open...
  • Prophylactic use of tranexamic acid not beneficial in cesarean delivery

    Medical Xpress / HealthDay / New England Journal of Medicine ^ | April 13, 2023 | Elana Gotkine / Luis D. Pacheco et al
    For patients undergoing cesarean delivery, prophylactic use of tranexamic acid does not lead to a lower risk for a composite of maternal death or blood transfusion, according to a study. Luis D. Pacheco, M.D. and colleagues randomly assigned patients undergoing cesarean delivery at 31 hospitals to receive tranexamic acid or placebo after umbilical cord clamping (5,529 and 5,471 participants, respectively). The primary outcome was a composite of maternal death or blood transfusion by hospital discharge or seven days postpartum. The researchers found that a primary outcome event occurred in 3.6 and 4.3 percent of participants in the tranexamic acid and...

    The White House ^ | June 24 | Biden Junta
    Today, the White House released the Biden-Harris Administration’s Blueprint for Addressing the Maternal Health Crisis, a whole-of-government approach to combatting maternal mortality and morbidity. For far too many mothers, complications related to pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum can lead to devastating health outcomes — including hundreds of deaths each year. This maternal health crisis is particularly devastating for Black women, Native women, and women in rural communities who all experience maternal mortality and morbidity at significantly higher rates than their white and urban counterparts. Under President Biden and Vice President Harris’s leadership, this Administration is now taking the next step towards...

    New Jersey Star-Ledger ^ | April 17, 2022 | By Tammy Murphy
    Over the past four years, my Nurture NJ work has allowed me to meet countless New Jersey mothers, many of whom have bravely spoken out about their experiences during pregnancy, labor and delivery. Their stories underscore just how frightening and dangerous childbirth can be, especially for mothers of color. I have written and spoken many times before about our disturbing statistics: a Black mother in New Jersey is over seven times more likely than a white mother to die of pregnancy-related complications. A Black baby is over three times more likely than a white baby to die before his or...

    It’s a scene (almost) straight from the book of Genesis, but with a few notable exceptions: The mother’s name is Penelope, not Sarah. Her husband is Alfred, not Abraham. And instead of baby Isaac, there’s Allie, Benjamin and Wyatt. After 69 years of marriage, Penelope and Alfred Cruz have stunned family, friends and the larger medical community by announcing the birth of a daughter and two sons. They were born by Caesarean section just after midnight Friday at the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. “We’re absolutely thrilled!” said Penelope. “And maybe a little stunned, too,” admitted Alfred. The arrival of...

    Most women in England and Wales no longer have a child before they are 30, official figures show for the first time. An Office for National Statistics (ONS) report found 50.1 per cent of women born in 1990 were childless by their 30th birthday. It is the first time there has been more childless women than mothers below the age of 30 since records dating back to 1920 began.

    Had there been newspapers in the Roman Empire 2,000 years ago, some of the headlines might have been:"GRAIN SHIPS DOCK""PIRATE SHIPS SUNK BY SIXTH FLEET""STUDENTS CLASH WITH POLICE, ROMAN RIOTS END"Such headlines would look very much like the headlines in our newspapers today. After all, the world of the New Testament was a world very much like ours. There were wars, sickness, poverty, slavery, misery, and injustice. There were people who struggled to keep on living. They were living by habit, long after they had lost any sense of purpose, meaning, or goal. It was a world very similar to...

    Left-wing actress Alyssa Milano, appearing on a podcast for People magazine, lamented giving birth because she “wasn’t in control.” She said there were too many people involved and she didn’t enjoy “the fact that lots of people had access to my vagina.” “After going through therapy after giving birth to Milo and remembering that one moment of feeling like I was being held down and had things being done to me that I didn’t want, to me, was very reminiscent of being sexually assaulted,” the 48-year-old Who’s the Boss star said.

    Dyanna Volek was never someone who dreamed of becoming a mother. From an early age, she knew deep down that she didn't want children. Maybe it stemmed from seeing her mother sacrifice her dream of becoming a flight attendant and work three jobs to raise two kids alone. Or maybe it was that other endeavors interested her more. "I'm always looking forward to the next thing," said Volek, who works in local government in San Francisco. "Being a parent was never one of them." Still, the idea of not having children seemed taboo, so she didn't dwell on it much....

    SAN DIEGO, CA—After the urging of both the American Medical Association and the Maori demon-god Whiro, California has elected to remove all unique information such as biological sex, age, and birthplace from its birth certificates, making them more much inclusive. Instead, every birth certificate will only include the simple phrase "you were born." "Assigning sex using binary variables in the public portion of the birth certificate fails to recognize the medical spectrum of gender identity," said Whiro, while chomping on the tasty souls of the damned. "We must remove all distinctions that could lead to discrimination or the denial of...

    New Jersey state trooper Michael Patterson was on patrol recently when he pulled over a white BMW for a routine traffic stop. He asked the driver for his license and registration, and the two started making small talk. It turned out that the driver, Matthew Bailly, is a retired police officer from Piscataway, a township in central Jersey. Patterson grew up in Piscataway, and they soon realized they knew some officers in common. That’s when the chitchat took a remarkable turn. “What street did you live on?” Bailly asked Patterson, 26. “Poe Place,” Patterson replied. Bailly always remembered Poe Place,...

    By defining parenthood by intention instead of biology, legalized surrogacy becomes a vicious process that is destructive of human life.One of the last states to do so, New York recently legalized commercial surrogacy. This means New Yorkers can now pay women to carry a baby to term. Under New York’s law, which state Sen. Brad Hoylman touts as “a model for other states,” surrogate mothers are also guaranteed legal representation and an abortion if they so choose.Naturally, Gov. Andrew Cuomo touts this as a triumph of “love over fear” and a much-needed update to the law. In contrast to the...
