Expectant mothers risk losing their jobs, their babies or both when employers deny them pregnancy accommodations at work.
Most of the world is joyously welcoming the arrival of the Prince of Cambridge. And while I find myself caught up in the excitement, what would give me real cause for celebration is if Kate does the very ordinary but extraordinarily important motherly act of breastfeeding her baby.
More hot weather is in store for the little prince -- and every other kid born into this generation. By the middle of this century, according to Greater London Authority, most summers in London will be as hot as the city's epic heat wave of 2003, which killed an estimated 600 people.
This week The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge join millions of parents in the latter phase of parenting, one which will necessitate very active roles in ensuring their child fulfills their personal hopes as well as the hopes of an entire country and world... no small task for certain.
The original William & Kate is basically the Sharknado of rom-coms. It's so bad, with a touch of nonsensicalness, that you can't help but have a soft spot in your heart for it.
My guess is that she kept calm and carried on! However if you're pregnant and don't have a royal entourage of doulas, assistants, nannies, the heir to the throne of the British Empire at your side, you may need to pull together a birth plan.
To the general public, please remember that it is not your job to watch news reports about a baby that may or may not be real. Your job is to pay attention to the toddler in your life.
I wanted to congratulate you on your upcoming new arrival and offer some sage advice from parents everywhere. You are in for incredible changes just ahead including a major lack of sleep for your servants and staff and nurses.
This hairdo looked like the Duchess of Cambridge got into a tussle with a pin-up and a flower child, and there was no clear winner. Would my fiancé Jason even recognize this bride coming towards him down the aisle, with her Medusa tendrils?
It's a boy! The long "great Kate wait" has ended, time to pop bottles and clink glasses.
With all the royal baby excitement, we're just about ready to book a trip to the visit the royal family in person. In preparation, we've highlighted fun things to do in Reading, where the duchess was born, Bucklebury, where she grew up, and Anglesley, where the royal couple has been living.
here will be no anonymity as they begin their run of parenting. Even before the baby's birth, Kate and William's caregiving choices have been scrutinized.
Some people might tell Kate that the birth experience doesn't really matter -- that all that matters is the healthy arrival of the third in line to the throne. Hogwash. Women care about the experience and remember how it happened.
It is my guess that their baby will enjoy the sort of upbringing that Kate enjoyed. One that is secure, uncomplicated and loving -- and with minimal sense of entitlement.
