(Many breast cancers are sensitive to estrogen, so there has been concern that for women who have had breast cancer, the high hormone levels that result from a pregnancy might increase the chance of the cancer coming back, according to the American Cancer Society.

One teacher's brilliant ideaRawpixel/Shutterstock Author Glennon Doyle Melton met with her son's teacher, who revealed that every Friday afternoon, she asks her fifth graders to fill out a sheet of paper. She asks them who they... would like to sit with next week and who has been an exceptional class citizen that week.

The Oscar-winning actress now says she “very much” regrets having signed a 2009 petition calling for his release after he... was arrested in Switzerland in 2009. “I very much regret it,” Portman told Buzzfeed in an interview published Tuesday. “I take responsibility for not thinking about it enough. Someone I respected gave it to me, and said, “I signed this. Will you too?” And I was like, sure. It was a mistake.
