3. Mom named baby "Uber"
A woman from India named her baby "Uber" after she gave birth in the back of a cab. The new mom, identified as Babli, from New Delhi, called for an Uber cab to take her to the hospital after her calls for an ambulance were left unanswered. Uber driver Shahnawaz was forced to pull over when Babli's contractions became more painful. He helped Babli's two women companions to create a makeshift labor ward in the back of his cab, where she gave birth to a healthy baby boy. Shahnawaz then got back in the wheel and drove to the nearest hospital. He says it had been one of the happiest incidents of his life. (dailymail.co.uk)

Yet another reason to quit. Women in their prime child-bearing years should stop smoking and avoid even second-hand smoke, says a new study that found that women who smoke or are exposed to second-hand smoke are 18% more likely to have problems getting pregnant within a year of trying and to enter menopause before the age of 50, compared to women who never smoked. While the researchers didn't say that smoking or second-hand smoke is solely the cause of these, it's best to avoid it altogether. (huffingtonpost.com)
