One great thing about having a baby now is the huge range of apps available to help the mother - or so I thought. When my first child was born, in 2007, the "iCraze" hadn't even been born.Wednesday, 15 May, 2013, 3:07am 1 comment
Yang Zhengrong smiled at the mention of her son, who will turn three in August.
"He is such a joy to the family," the 45-year-old restaurant owner in Mianzhu's Jiulong township said. "We will be in our 60s or probably gone when he is only a teenager and he won't be able to do much for us, but just to think of all the joy he brings the family makes me so grateful."7 May 2013 - 4:52am

Films that use a woman's struggle with impending motherhood as material for comedy aren't exactly appreciated by French director Remi Bezancon. 'Most times they are caricatures,' he says. 'The best film about maternity is Alien.' Yes, that's the Ridley Scott sci-fi thriller in which a man is impregnated with and then torn apart by an extraterrestrial foetus.15 Jan 2012 - 12:00am
I wish working mothers would just get on with it. There's a film coming out starring Sarah Jessica Parker based on journalist Allison Pearson's book I Don't Know How She Does It. Here we go- by all sensible accounts- another dated 'celebration' of the life of a big, brave career-driven mum.9 Oct 2011 - 12:00am
Married teenagers have the highest birth rate of any female age groups, new government statistics show.
For every 1,000 married women aged 15 to 19 in 2006 - the latest figures available - 668 became mothers. This was an increase from 342 in 1986 and 521 in 2001.23 Nov 2010 - 12:00am
