Mom From Viral Rainbow Baby Photo Is Back With Another Gorgeous Pic

Photographer Mary Maloney says she started off 2017 in “a perfect way.” On the second day of the year, she snapped photos of a proud mom holding her rainbow baby.  In October, Mary, the woman behind Pebbles and Polka Dots Photography, teamed up with JoAnn Marrero of From Labor to Love Photography for a stunning maternity photo of Jessica Mahoney.

The photographer is working on a breastfeeding series and learned that Jessica wanted to be a part of it. Mary wanted to highlight that Jessica’s daughter is a rainbow baby, so she provided the mom with a rainbow dress and a veil for the infant. Mary told The Huffington Post that the photo shoot was quick because of the cold weather in Massachusetts, and according to her, Jessica’s daughter was a natural. “Her daughter did perfect,” she said. “Not a peep. A complete angel.” Mary told HuffPost that though the shoot was short, taking photos of Jessica and her daughter was an emotional experience.  “For me, sitting back 20 feet with camera in hand an...

ConclusionsThis prospective case-control study is one of the largest to examine environmental factors, sperm characteristics, sperm DNA fragmentation and chromatin, and chromosome anomalies in spermatozoa in relation to unexplained recurrent pregnancy loss. The originality of our study lies in the comprehensive andrological examination and search for risk factors and fertility history. Further studies are needed to confirm the links between unexplained RPL and a male family history of infertility or miscarriages. The increased sperm aneuploidy observed in unexplained RPL supports a male etiology. These data pave the way fo...

Conclusion Y chromosome microdeletions and chromosomal heteromorphism are not associated with RPL in Northeast China. Some RPL males had structural chromosome anomalies, all of which were reciprocal translocations. We suggest that it may not be necessary to detect Y chromosome microdeletions in RPL males with Yqh±.

Recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL) is defined as the miscarriage of 2 or more clinical pregnancies. The majority of cases remain unexplained after standard evaluations for anti-phospholipid antibody syndrome (APAS), uterine anomalies and parental karyotypes. While ovarian reserve testing is recommended for women with infertility, the role of ovarian reserve testing in the setting of RPL is unknown.
