It's no secret that there is an unbreakable bond between a mother and her child, but I never knew there's actual scientific proof to back that bond up. How have I not heard this by now?!?

With all the bad stuff that seems to pop up in our Facebook news feeds these days, I was so happy to see something today that gave me the "warm fuzzies".

I know this piece of information seems like a no brainer, after all we share the same body for 9 plus months, but there is just something so sweet and comforting to know there will always be a piece of our babies that remains inside us besides our memories. Makes all the letting go we have to do as mothers a little bit easier, don't you think?

To read more about how fetal cells can protect a mom from disease, I suggest reading this interesting article from NPR.
