Hayden Panettiere is a mom to 10-month-old daughter Kay Evodokia with fiancé professional boxer Wladimir Klitschko. She has been candid about her struggle with PPD since she gave birth. She said in an interview on "Live! With Kelly and Michael," “There’s a lot of misunderstanding — there’s a lot of people out there that think that it’s not real, that it’s not true, that it’s something that’s made up in their minds, that ‘Oh, it’s hormones.’ They brush it off. It’s something that’s completely uncontrollable. It’s really painful and it’s really scary and women need a lot of support.” (people.com)

    For the first time in January, doctors would try to treat babies while they’re still inside their mother’s womb. These babies in utero will receive stem cells to help treat brittle bone disease. Doctors hope that stem cells from terminated pregnancies, which could work in many tissues, could also alleviate the symptoms of the disease. Brittle bone disease affects 1 in every 25,000 births and is caused by a genetic mutation.
