Are We What Our Mothers Ate? 
   Mothers' health in the days and weeks prior to 
   becoming pregnant may determine the health of offspring 
   much later in life, according to new research. The 
   studies demonstrate that maternal nutrition, protein 
   intake and level of fat in the diet may cause changes 
   in the developing foetus that can have long-term 
   health consequences

Fathers aren't dispensable just yet 
   Scientists may be tempted to think men are becoming 
   an optional extra in the mating game, but biochemical 
   evidence suggests that fathers play a key role in 
   rearing children

Complication risk for older mums 
   UK scientists have produced further evidence to suggest 
   delaying becoming a mother may be risky.  They found 
   women who start their periods early were more likely to 
   require medical assistance such as forceps, or a 
   Caesarean section.  The effect was neutralised if these 
   women had their first baby at an early age - but not 
   for older mothers.
