As is common this time of the year many corporate houses are organising their annual get-together with the media. At one such event last week, journalists were accosted by nearly a dozen photographers at the entrance who were urging those entering the party to pose for photos.

On Friday, Baylor Scott & White Pharmacy told her they are going to cover the cost of new shots. Price said she is very thankful.

"They are going to eat the charges themselves and replace the vials for free for me and my family," Price said.

But Price said she has had issues with delivery services, including Fed Ex before. She said something needs to change.

"A policy needs to change as far as rural package deliveries and them treating them as they would to any other neighborhood," Price said.

If you agreed, you would be subject to the same treatment that the paparazzi mete out to senior corporate executives and celebrities flashing bulbs and look here requests.

By the time the party was over, the photographs were ready for the journalist to take back home ...

When seasons start changing from one to another, pollen is in the air, or the cold weather takes over, allergies and colds tend to go on the rise. This means a lot of moms and families turn to allergy or cold medicine to relieve their symptoms and breath a little easier throughout the day. But what if you're breastfeeding? Knowing how antihistamines and cold medicine affects milk supply could be helpful the next time you reach for the Benadryl.

In an interview with Romper, International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) Tiffany Gallagher of The Boob Geek says, "Decongestants can [affect milk supply], but the longer your milk supply has been established and the shorter the use, the less likely of it being an issue." If your body has adjusted to breastfeeding and you're taking an allergy or cold medicine to get past a short period, you can take comfort knowing that it probably won't have a major effect on your supply.

On the other hand, especially if you'll be taking an antihistamine or cold medicine for long-term use, registered nurse and IBCLC Angie Mann Natero shares "many of them do have the potential to have a negative impact on supply." Although this isn't the case for every breastfeeding mom, it's possible that some moms may notice a change.

"He found them stashed behind the birdbath, a good distance from the front door where the FedEx driver claims he left them," she said. "The box was ice cold."

Price took the box to the pharmacists who said the shots were ruined.

"So at that point, I had $8,000 of ruined medication and I'm supposed to be taking these every Friday," Price said.

Additionally, Healthline shared that antihistamines with ingredients diphenhydramine and chlorpheniramine can create drowsiness or sluggishness, and breastfeeding while taking these meds might make your baby sleepy. The article suggested avoiding these effects by choosing a non-drowsy antihistamine. Although this shouldn't impact your supply directly, it may have an effect on how often you're breastfeeding if you or the baby are more tired than normal, and in turn, mess with your supply in the long run.

Overall, you should consult with your doctor on which antihistamines and cold medicines are best for you while you're breastfeeding. They don't have a major, negative impact on everybody, but each case is different. If you're going to use them more long term or are already struggling with low milk supply, it may be a good idea to reach out to your lactation consultant or healthcare provider to get advice on managing allergies or colds while trying to keep up supply. In addition, there are precautions you can take to keep your baby a little more protected from germs.

A Central Texas woman wants answers from FedEx after a package of life-saving medication for her unborn child was ruined when she says it was left in the wrong place.

When Celestine Price was pregnant with her son two years ago, she delivered him six weeks early.

"I had premature ruptured membranes with caused him to have to be induced and come six weeks early," Price said

So her doctors are taking precautions this pregnancy to make sure that doesn't happen again.

They prescribed shots, called Makenna, to help reduce the risk of a pre-term labor or miscarriage.

"I'm supposed to take them every Friday starting on my 16th week. the doctor doesn't even want me delaying it a day," Price said.

The shots cost $1,830 each without insurance, totaling nearly $8,000 per month.

Price had the shots shipped to her parents home in Belton in a rural area on Tuesday. She said she left special instructions to leave them on the porch if no one answered the door. Price said those instructions were not followed.

"Tuesday afternoon my mom checks for them and doesn't find them. About an hour later my sister checks for them. She still doesn't find them. My dad checked around 5 and still couldn't find them. Then I came by around 9 and I couldn't find them," Price explained.

According to FedEx, the driver left them on the front porch. Price said it was not there. On Wednesday morning, her grandfather went to check again.

"He found them stashed behind the birdbath, a good distance from the front door where the FedEx driver claims he left them," she said. "The box was ice cold."
