A miscarriage, the loss of a pregnancy, can be emotionally devastating. Many women worry they could have detected miscarriage sooner and have prevented it. Though in most cases, a miscarriage can’t be prevented (it’s estimated that as many as 25 percent of pregnancies end in miscarriage), knowing the signs of a miscarriage can not only help a woman understand what’s going on with her body but can also help her get appropriate medical care to prevent health complications from the miscarriage.
Cooking with your kids can be a fun educational activity, but it requires constant vigilance. Younger children don’t yet know the dangers of the kitchen, while older kids can forget. The hazards lurking in your kitchen might surprise you—not just the risk of fire and poisoning and sharp objects, but some unexpected hazards, too. Safety consists of making sure your kitchen is kid-friendly, adopting safe cooking and preparation habits and closely monitoring your children’s behavior in the kitchen.
