The results of this study point to the fact that the father’s mental health represents a risk factor for child development, whereas the traditional view has been that this risk in large is represented by the mother.

Luckiest. Newborn. Ever. The Turkey quake has killed at least 360 people and injured more than 1,300, but those numbers are still super-fluid. In devastating situations like this quake, you at times need a reminder that sometimes hope is still around. This newborn, named Azra Karaduma, is a huge symbol of that hope. This 14-day-old baby was discovered in the rubble of a collapsed building in the city of Ercis — ALIVE. “Given the work conditions and hardships of rescue teams, the best prize is to bring people back to life,” said Ercan Toprak, who led the rescue team that saved the young girl. “We feel the joy of connecting her back to life and hope her mother and grandmother will also be saved very shortly.” We hope so too.
