ON A recent visit to my local pharmacy, I was fascinated to see the new Blunkhead pregnancy testing kit.

This remarkable piece of technology not only detects pregnancy with an accuracy of 99.99 per cent, but also in the case of a positive result gives a baseline attainment level for the foetus, and also sets it targets which must be met before delivery.
