For some people, a 27 week pregnancy update might seem like a random week to choose but the 27 week mark has always been a momentous milestone for me. I don’t want to be morbid here but the survival rate for babies born at 27 weeks suddenly increases (I think it’s due to lung development). And while we obviously want baby to stay put for another 12-13 weeks, it’s a reassurance that if anything did happen now or I suddenly went into labour, there’s a high chance the baby would be OK. Pregnancy is all wonderful and exciting, but it’s also a really worrying time because you’re constantly hoping everything is going to be OK. So it’s at 27 weeks that I’m starting to relax and really start planning for our future with a baby girl! Whoop whoop! Update: I’m actually publishing this at almost 30 weeks because it’s taken me 3 weeks to get more than 30 seconds at my computer!

Their lack of legal status and inability to afford child care makes it nearly impossible for them to find a job, and staying in the U.S. legally is an uphill … [Read more...] about In border crisis, pregnant teens especially vulnerable
Kristen Jordan Shamus Detroit Free Press Published 6:01 AM EDT Apr 14, 2019 It was a traveler from Israel, state health officials say, who unknowingly brought the measles to Oakland County in early March, and sparked what has become the largest measles outbreak in Michigan in 28 years. Before he came to visit an Orthodox Jewish enclave in Southfield and Oak Park, the man spent some time in New York, where an unrelated and fast-spreading measles outbreak among mostly unvaccinated children led the mayor last week to declare a state of emergency. Once he got to Michigan, the man spent his time at Jewish synagogues and institutions to pray and study every day from March 6-13, unaware that he was spreading the virus along the way. The disease has an incubation period of seven to 21 days after exposure, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and a person can be … [Read more...] about How Oakland Co.’s Orthodox Jewish enclave became epicenter for measles
