A family in Illinois is celebrating in a big way now that their 18-month-old preemie is finally able to go home after spending her entire young life in the hospital.

Little Autumn was born in March 2021 at just 23 weeks gestation. At the time, she weighed just 1.1 pounds and had a number of medical complications, including bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), a type of chronic lung disease. Doctors gave the tiny preemie a 50% chance of survival.

“When a patient is about to deliver at 23 weeks, we know that [the baby’s] survival is about 50% … and so Autumn was given a 50-50 chance of survival when she was first delivered,” Dr.

Viral TikTok video exposes connection between hormonal birth control and blood clots

Viral TikTok video exposes connection between hormonal birth control and blood clots

by Administrator

Hormonal birth control is often recommended to women as a way for them to take control of their sexuality by avoiding pregnancy. Yet there is no denying that women are rarely given all the information needed to make an informed choice about using hormonal birth control. And now, more women are coming forward with the horrific side effects they’ve experienced.

19-year-old Sydney Marshall shared her story on TikTok of how birth control led her to develop a blood clot that traveled to her brain, landing her in the hospital. Marshall said her symptoms began with a slight headache but she found no relief with over-the-counter medication.

Study: Christianity may lose majority, plurality status in U.S. by 2070

Study: Christianity may lose majority, plurality status in U.S. by 2070

WASHINGTON (CNS) — If trends of the past 30 years continue for the next 50, Christianity will lose its majority status in the United States by 2070, according to a new demographic study by the Pew Research Center.

If those trends, first identified in 1990, accelerate over the next half-century, Christianity will have fewer adherents than Americans who are not affiliated with any church, according to the study, “Modeling the Future of Religion in America,” released Sept. 13.

Even with the demographic modeling used by Pew, the numbers vary widely. Christians, put by Pew currently at 64% of the U.S. population, could slide to 54% — or plunge to 35% — by 2070.

UK inventor’s inflatable incubators are saving preemies in Ukraine

An inflatable incubator designed by an inventor in the United Kingdom is being used to help premature infants in war-torn Ukraine.

According to the Daily Mail, inventor James Roberts created the so-called “mOm” incubators after learning about the difficulties of caring for premature infants in war zones. While traditional incubators can weigh as much as 220 pounds (100kg), portable mOm devices weigh less than 50 pounds.

“Hospitals are being bombed – when air-raid sirens sound they cannot move the conventional systems. Our Mom device can be unplugged and transported to bunkers or shelters incredibly quickly, meaning that both nurses and the babies are protected and survive,” he explained.
