Lawsuit says woman gave birth alone on Maryland jail floor
A woman who said she was left to give birth to her baby alone on the dirty, concrete floor of her jail cell in Maryland filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday alleging that jail nurses ignored her screams and pleas for help for six hours. A fellow inmate, hearing Valentine's pleas, called Valentine's boyfriend, who called the jail pleading with staffers to help her, the lawsuit said. The nurses also ignored a concern raised by a jail deputy about Valentine but he did not contact any superiors, the lawsuit said. The lawsuit is similar to one filed in 2019 by a woman who gave birth alone in Denver's jail the year before, claiming that nurses and deputies ignored her pleas for help for five hours. Previously, decisions about whether to move a pregnant inmate were left to jail nurses but deputies were authorized to call for an ambulance for someone in labor.wftv.com

Florida baby believed to be first born with COVID-19 antibodies from vaccinated mother
A baby was recently born in Florida with COVID-19 antibodies after the newborn’s mother was vaccinated when she was 36 weeks pregnant, according to WPBF-TV. “To our knowledge, this was the first in the world that was reported of a baby being born with antibodies after a vaccination,” Gilbert said. AdThe baby girl was born three weeks after her mother, a front-line health care worker, was given the first dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, doctors said. The pediatricians published an article on their findings on medRxiv, saying there are some indications that newborns born to vaccinated mothers are still at risk for infection.

New baby monitor could use AI to alert parents before infant awakes
The internet search giant has worked on a product that promises to warn parents before their little one has even woken up. Using video streaming, audio recordings and AI, the device would monitor the baby's behavior against a database of normal patterns. Based on the infant's movements and any noise it makes, it would detect anything out of character and subsequently issue an alert if the baby appears uncomfortable. An alert could be issued before the baby cries or even wakes up, according to the patent, which was first reported by CNBC. The patent filing states: "While a baby's cry may alert his parents to the baby being in distress, sometimes a baby will not audibly indicate his distress.
