When you think about it, Yosemite is one big birthing room. As such, rangers are cautioning summer visitors to look but not touch, and to give any young wildlife - baby birds, fawns, etc. - plenty of space. “They may appear to be in distress, but are not sick, injured, or abandoned,” the park notes of young wildlife. “If moved from their location, the parents cannot care for their offspring and many of the young animals do not survive.” If spotted on the ground, these animals should not be moved or handled, rangers say. In fact, visitors who happen across newborn wildlife are asked to immediately leave the area so the parents can continue to care for their young.  “When people are present, a mother deer or bird may become aggressive or stay away for longer periods of time, which will prevent the offspring from feeding on a regular basis,” the park says in cautioning visitors.

Forget bellycasting or that barefoot glamour photo shoot on the beach to commemorate your pregnancy. And who needs a cast of tiny post-natal footprints? Now you can print your fetus into a figurine.  "Imagine holding your baby before he or she is born," reads the website of 3D Babies, a company that promises to bring your not-yet-fully-formed baby to life. The process is simple enough. 3D Babies takes your 3D or 4D sonograms, tweaks them a bit digitally and then renders that tiny growing cherub into a plastic doll via 3D printing.  The babies come in three sizes -- an 8-inch life-size, a 4-inch half-size and a 2-inch mini -- with a choice of three shades: light, medium or dark.

"Well, they're not having problems but they still like to live apart, which is definitely different," said Kardashian, who is married to L.A. Clippers forward Lamar Odom.

Later this spring, the American Lung Assn.'s Los Angeles chapter again will sponsor the "World's Biggest Baby Shower" to alert young pregnant women to smoking's dangers. "It's a creative approach," says Ron Arias of the ALA. "You're dealing with a very hard-to-reach group. It's an economic and educational problem more than anything." Statistics bear that out: 20% to 40% of all women who become pregnant are smokers and only about 25% stop during pregnancy, experts say.

On Monday, a memorial of candles, homemade posters and photos, placed on the sidewalk near the site where the three were hit, swelled in size.
