    Women giving birth by Caesarean section could be the first to benefit from a revolutionary Israeli invention for closing surgical incisions without stitches or staples. The technique also promises to leave patients less prone to infection and scarring. BioWeld1, a unique...

  • Ask Sima - Part IV, Which One’s Better?

    By Sima Cohen

    June 30, 2013 | 11:27 am

    Q: Chia seeds or Flax seeds?
    A: Both are fabulous, but chia is just a little better. Chia packs more fiber, protein, and omega 3′s tan flaxseed. Chia also makes a great thickening agent for soups, sauces and marinades. Use it in place of flour or cornstarch. It’s also great in...

  • Mother’s Day: The gift of responsibility

    May 8, 2013 | 6:29 pm

    On Mother’s Day last year, I was already a couple of months into my pregnancy. Still, there could not have been a concept more foreign to me than the idea of being a mother. I was slow to comprehend the impending reality of motherhood, which I knew rendered me different from many...

  • The curious consensus of Jews on abortion

    By Roger Price

    February 1, 2013 | 11:09 am

    That different Jews have disparate views is not news. What is news is when most Jews agree on a particular idea or approach. And so it is with the curious consensus of Jews on abortion.

    In mid-2012, the Public Religion Research Institute (“PRRI”) published its findings from a...

  • Real Housewives of NYC – She is Coma Toast!

    By Ilana Angel

    August 28, 2012 | 3:16 pm

    The much anticipated three part trip to St. Barths has begun.  We start with the flight onto the small island and Carole talking about the loss of John and Caroline.  I love Carole and actually don’t like it when she talks about them. She seems uncomfortable when she does and I...

  • Lying for the cause

    By Dennis Prager

    August 22, 2012 | 5:27 pm

    There are many admirable values. The list includes, of course, goodness, integrity and compassion.

    But there is one value without which civilization cannot survive, and without which evil is inevitable: truth.

    I cannot think of a 20th-century evil not predicated on lies. It was...

  • RHONYC Hits a New Low

    By Ilana Angel

    August 19, 2012 | 5:28 pm

    Back from my vacation in Canada, I returned to what may be the most horrific episode of the Real Housewives of New York City.  These chicks are completely insane and I’m not sure why I was so anxious to see what I missed.  It is 2 in the afternoon and yes, I am drinking.

    We start...

  • The Real Housewives of NYC Stays Fake but Gets Good

    By Ilana Angel

    August 9, 2012 | 8:01 am

    I’ve been watching all season but truth be told, I’m bored. The new chicks are not that interesting and the old chicks have a hag quality that is not entertaining.  I simply could not be bothered to blog about it.  I wasn’t paying close enough attention to recap it, so I...

  • Thank you Planned Parenthood

    By Susan Freudenheim

    February 15, 2012 | 2:33 pm

    Amid all the hubris and rancor flying around the subject of women’s reproductive rights these days, I suggest we stop for a moment and send a word of thanks to Planned Parenthood for its 100 years of caring for both women and men with nowhere else to turn — almost 50 of those...

  • Should frozen sperm be used to create posthumous grandchildren?

    March 22, 2011 | 1:42 pm

    Last fall, 27-year-old Ohad Ben-Yaakov was injured in an accident at his part-time job, and he died after two weeks in a coma. Ben-Yaakov wasn’t married, nor was he in a relationship. No woman was pregnant with his child.

    Nevertheless, his devastated parents believe it’s not...

  • What You NEVER Expect When You’re Expecting…

    By Sarah Tuttle-Singer

    February 5, 2011 | 11:34 am

     We saw the Romantic Comedies.  We read the books.  

    And here’s the stuff they left out:

    THE FIRST TRIMESTER: 


    —You’ll probably develop carpel tunnel syndrome from spending over an hour a day on Google trying to figure out if those niggling pains in your pelvic area that you’ve...

  • My Interview with the Department of Homeland Security!

    By Julia Bendis

    February 1, 2011 | 10:45 am

    Years ago, I had applied for a position with the Department of Homeland Security.  Why would I apply for a position with the Homeland Security?  Who knows…  Remember my post about my ADD, and pins in my ass?  Well, that’s why.  This was right after 9/11, and they just formed this new...

  • Prop. 73: The Devil’s in the Details

    By Angela J. Davis

    October 27, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    When Californians go to the polls on Nov. 8, many will read Proposition 73 as a proposal to require that health care providers perform the seemingly logical task of informing parents before performing abortions on underage girls.

    But the considered opinions of doctors and Juvenile...

  • The Mohel’s Wife

    By Felisa Billet

    July 7, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    When I congratulated "Julie" at her son's bris, I couldn't believe that she looked better than I did at my wedding. Like most of the other women attending the ritual circumcision, we were amazed that anyone could be so put together eight days after giving birth. Trim and graceful...

  • Moms-to-Be Seek Religion Reconnect

    By Sharon Schatz Rosenthal

    March 31, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    Shlepping around with swollen feet, a growing belly and mounting exhaustion is a challenge for any mom-to-be, but Beth Saltz is determined to go to Shabbat services as often as she can for the rest of her pregnancy.

    "I feel I need to do it now before the baby is born," said Saltz,...

  • In the Pink

    By J.D. Smith

    November 25, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    I'm almost fully pregnant. There's not much for me to do. We're about two weeks away from having a baby girl and I haven't gained a pound. I feel fine. Never better. Thanks for asking.

    We went to a picnic the other day. A woman with a 3-year-old girl told us "your life is going to...

  • Jewish Law and RU-486

    By Francesca Lunzer Kritz

    October 26, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    How do Jews and how does Judaism view the recent approval of Mifeprex, a drug combination that can replace surgical abortion in many women?

    Well, that depends on whom you ask.

    Mifeprex, popularly call RU-486, can be used to terminate pregnancies for up to 49 days, counting from the...
