    3. Judy Ann Santos calms fans' worries about headstand photo

    The #PregnantandStrong actress and cookbook author Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo assures her fans of she and the  baby in her womb is safe, after posting on Instagram a photo of her doing a headstand. A few weeks back, she cancelled a book signing event in Davao because she was ordered to be on bed rest by her doctor. She explained via another headstand photo post on Instagram that headstands are safe for preggy women, and that it allows the baby to move to its proper birthing position. "But of course when doing headstands you must be supervised by professionals. Hindi ko po sya ginawang mag isa, don't worry. But thanks for the concern. Nakakataba ng puso."

    4. Doctors may soon be able to predict more accurate baby due dates

    A new study published in BJOG: An International Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology claims that measuring the length of a woman's cervix within an ultrasound could help predict a more accurate due date. Researchers explained their findings: When a woman's cervix is more than 30 millimeters at her due date, she has half the chance of delivering within a week, and an 85-percent chance if her cervix measures 10 millimeters. Not everyone agrees, though, as measuring the cervix via a tansvaginal ultrasound at 37 or 39 weeks can be quite difficult. (time.com)


    5. Singing calms babies down twice as long than talking to them
    Better practice that singing voice, mom and dad. Researchers from the University of Montreal found that singing or listening to a song, even if they aren't familiar to it, can help keep babies calm longer than just talking to them. The study, which was published in Infancy, also found that babies have yet to develop emotional self-control, and the study suggests that singing helps babies learn that skill. Talking to babies have their own benefits as well, so it's probably best to do both. (sciencedaily.com
