Pets on the bed - health hazard or harmless comfort?
This week Kate Middleton announced the line up of bridesmaids for her marriage to Prince William on 29th April. Are bridesmaids just the butt of wedding jokes, or indispensible handmaidens for the bride? We discuss the role of the modern bridesmaid with gamophobic (gamophobia is an irrational fear of marriage), Hannah Betts, and Belinda Hanks, Editor of the website confetti.co.uk.
The risks and potential benefits of pioneering new surgery in the womb to treat spina bifida.
