While a baby was still attached via the umbilical cord, doctors attached a pacemaker to the baby's heart

Researchers completed the first-ever EXIT (Ex Utero Intrapartum Treatment) to ventricular pacing procedure. The patient, a 36-week fetus with complete atrioventricular block and cardiac dysfunction, was at high risk of pre-term death.

Researchers found that 6-year-olds born to mothers with very low vitamin D levels during their first trimester had bigger waists -- about half an inch plumper on average -- than peers whose mothers had enough vitamin D in early pregnancy. These kids also had 2 percent more body fat....
