Hits of the Week from Kveller: June 3 – 7

This week’s most popular posts from Raising Kvell, in case you missed them.

– Three Years of Trying & Still No Baby. Their doctors have informed them they’re doing everything “right,” but for Sharon and her husband, three years of trying to have a baby proves just how difficult infertility can be.

– Should a Mom Be Jailed For Her Own Stillbirth? A mother in Mississippi has been accused of manslaughter after traces of methamphetamine were found in her system when she had a stillborn baby. Rabbi Jill Jacobs argues why a conviction like this would open a dangerous slide for prosecuting women for any adverse behavior while pregnant.

– Coming to Terms with Medical Termination. At three months pregnant, this mom found out that her baby had a rare chromosomal abnormality, and she and her husband had to make the difficult decision to abort the baby.

– Since My Divorce, What Do I Do About Covering My Head? The first in a series on the Jewish aspects of divorce, Mayim Bialik talks about how traditionally, once a woman becomes divorced she no longer needs to cover her hair, but it’s a ritual she’s not so ready to let go.
