2. Preggos' diet linked to baby’s health A study of 19,000 women in the U.S. found that eating a healthy diet a year leading up to their pregnancy may help cut the risk of their babies developing a heart problem. A healthy diet consists of plenty of fresh fish, fruit, nuts, and vegetables. Researchers believe that a healthy diet before, during, and after pregnancy can have benefits for both mother and child. Instead of focusing on what nutrient a pregnant woman needs, her whole diet should be taken into consideration. The study was published in the Archives of Diseases in Childhood Fetal & Neonatal Edition. (bbc.com)

Ohio pushes to ban abortions for Down syndrome babies Anti-abortionists in Ohio seek to ban abortions for babies with Down syndrome, via a proposed bill already endorsed by the National Right to Life Committee. Because women undergo prenatal testing to see if their baby will be afflicted with certain health conditions, 50 to 85 percent of them discover that their baby might have Down syndrome and chose to have an abortion. That number has since declined. Supporters of the bill say it’s not solely about abortion, but rather the discrimination against babies with Down syndrome. (huffingtonpost.com)
