How Soon Can Holoprosencephaly Be Detected
Undivided brain: Most of us have 2 halves in our brain, known as "hemispheres". Holoprosencephaly (HPE) is abnormal division of the embryo's brain and lack of separation of the cerebral hemispheres. HPI can be mild to severe and can cause defects in the development of the face and in brain structure and function. ...Read more
When the embryo's forebrain does not divide to form bilateral cerebral hemispheres (the left and right halves of the brain), it causes defects in the development of the face and in brain structure and function.

Lobar Holopreosenceh: I believe you are referring to Lobar Holopreosencehaly in which the brain is not formed well leading to severe mental retardation. This is a rare condition from failure of the brain to completely divide into two separate halves. Many parts of the entire brain may be fused and not allow normal function. This may be as a result of some chromosomal disorders. A more complete descriptionfromgeneticist ...Read more

Labor hurts: Most women find labor a lot of work and painful. They are blessed with selective forgetting since most are willing to do it again later. Your history of prior abortions will have no particular impact on the process. Labor will start when it decides to.
