We guess it's true what they say: giving birth really IS a miracle!!
A 36-year-old Swedish woman recently made history as she became the first person EVER to give birth after having undergoing a womb transplant!
The new mother, who wishes to remain nameless, was told she had no womb at just 15-years-old, making it impossible for her to have kids. However, doctors DID mention the possibility of a transplant, although they made it clear that nothing was guaranteed!
Here is some good news for women facing bad news. Studies are finding that pregnant women fighting cancer can undergo treatment without any harm to their unborn child.
After assessing 70 children exposed to chemotherapy in the womb, a Belgian study has found that they developed just like any other child.
It's a good thing this research was carried out too because some doctors recommend terminating the pregnancy if the mother had to undergo cancer treatment, as study author Dr. Frederic Amant explained:
"Many (doctors) aren’t keen to give chemotherapy to pregnant women and may even recommend termination. But treating a pregnant woman with cancer doesn’t have to be so different from treating a cancer patient who isn’t pregnant.”
In the case a mother-to-be is diagnosed with cancer, the study found chemotherapy is possible during the first trimester while using ultrasounds to monitor the baby's development.
The study suggests radiation therapy is best done in the first two trimesters, as the baby is small enough to be covered with a lead blanket.
"These data don’t say that chemotherapy is completely safe, but the baby is better off being in (the mother) as long as possible,” added obstetric physician Dr. Catherine Nelson-Piercy.
The reality star spoke to Andy Cohen at a Sirius XM Town Hall interview on Wednesday, and once again she was not afraid to say exactly how she felt about everything -- including her certainty about the O.J. Simpson case. She explained:
"I knew he did it. There was three people at the crime scene. DNA evidence, three people at the crime scene. Pick a murderer. How hard is that?"
But Cait wasn't just giving her own opinion this time.
The former Olympian went on to talk once again about her friendship with Robert Kardashian, who she now says was ALSO guilty -- that is, he felt enormously guilty about getting a murderer off! She recounted:
