New Blog, The Topic Is Cancer 
CDC's Division of Cancer Prevention and Control (DCPC) has launched a new blog titled The Topic Is Cancer to provide personal perspectives on cancer-related topics.
Births: Final Data for 2012
3,952,841 births were registered in the U.S. in 2012. The general fertility rate declined to 63.0 per 1,000 women aged 15–44. The teen birth rate fell 6%, to 29.4 per 1,000 women.

Key Findings: Prenatal Diagnosis of Congenital Heart Defects 
Researchers from CDC and the National Birth Defects Prevention Study (NBDPS) found that 15% of women reported that they first learned about their baby’s congenital heart defect (CHD) during pregnancy (called a prenatal diagnosis). Many times it is critical that a baby receives their CHD diagnosis during the mother’s pregnancy to reduce serious complications after the baby is born.
