Postpartum depression is a serious disorder that needs to be watched closely by a doctor. But a study authored by a UCI researcher might offer ways to help predict who is at risk ? even before a child comes to term. A hormone produced by the placenta is linked to postpartum depression when found in higher levels midway through pregnancy, according to a study by Ilona Yim, a UCI psychology and social behavior assistant professor, and her colleagues. The team of researchers took blood samples from 100 pregnant women and tracked those women?

SANTA ANA — It started with the story of TJ. TJ was a 17-year-old boy on death row in Florida for a rape and murder conviction. But he was also a boy whose mother may have drank during his pregnancy, leaving him with impulsive behavior, and an inability to learn from mistakes or plan for the future, according to Los Angeles County Deputy Public Defender William Edwards. Edwards shared TJ's story with members of Court Appointed Special Advocates of Orange County (CASA)

Assemblyman Chuck DeVore has introduced an amendment to his bill granting temporary access to parking for the disabled to pregnant women in their third trimester and within two months of childbirth, restricting access to such spaces for free parking zones — such as a supermarket parking lot — only. DeVore said he was acknowledging concerns of critics that a number of free parking spots for the disabled offered in for-profit parking garages, a feature typical in large urban areas, may be taken up by the influx of newly eligible parkers at no cost.

So far, Digna Hernandez says the third trimester of her pregnancy has been her hardest. Of course, most women enduring the trials of childbirth would agree, but Hernandez has undergone a particularly harrowing struggle — her husband was redeployed in Iraq in February, smack in the middle of her pregnancy’s seventh month. “Just walking upstairs, I get tired,” she said. “I’m in my 37th week, and even just driving to a doctor’s appointment is difficult.

Shawbong Fok Last week, a 28-year-old pregnant woman who needed help called Project Cuddle's 24-hour hotline. She said she was in a violent relationship. She needed to get out, but couldn't ask her parents for help because of her pregnancy. She had nowhere to go and had no one to speak to. Anxious, she had questions churning in her mind. Where would she live? What should she do about her abusive relationship? Where would she seek prenatal care?

As a father of three, I can attest to the fact that children are among life?s greatest treasures, but as far as bringing them into the world is concerned, not much is said on birth announcements about the physical cost to the mother for giving birth. For many women, the initial joy of childbirth is later joined by another emotion: worry, as they realize that many of the changes their bodies went through during pregnancy do not seem to revert back to their normal state. They find themselves confronting stretched and sagging breasts, stomachs with loose and permanently damaged skin, accompanied by weight gain on the hips and thighs.

Coral Wilson Turning 1 year old may be small accomplishment for most children, but not for twins William and Hayden Hurray. The birthday celebration on Sunday in Bonita Canyon Park in Newport Beach was a day parents Mark and Erin Hurray thought would never come. A crowd of about 100 -- friends, relatives and their children -- gathered to admire William and Hayden's glowing skin and pink cheeks. A year and three months ago, the unborn twins were within a day of being overwhelmed by a rare fetal condition.

Ali Cooper was at a friend's house when she took the test. "Positive," it read. A trip to a Birth Choice health clinic confirmed it - she was 16 years old and pregnant. Gripped by fear, Cooper wondered how she would face her parents. Would they chastise or stand by her? The Irvine resident quickly decided not to go through with the pregnancy. She wasn't ready to give birth, she thought, only to be overcome by a different kind of terror. "I was more scared to have an abortion than to be a mom," she said.
