Vitamin K Injection?
66
Mon, 11-09-2009 - 6:57pm

Please help by sharing with me your knowledge, experience, & opinions. My baby is due in 3 weeks. I'm 42. I've decided, with no doubts, against the Hep B shot. However my Midwife & doula have told me to accept the Vitamin K shot because it's not worth the fight. I'm currently working on my Birth Plan & Vaccine Exemption Statement which needs to be notarized & submitted. I'm feeling overwhelmed by everything at this point. What should I do?

Thank you

By reading the due date, she may be having the baby right now. I hope it all goes well :) I had my last baby at 40, vaginally, no problems, no Vit K shot. (But that's not to say I couldn't be convinced to get the shot if I had a traumatic vaginal birth.) Maybe hers will be a smooth delivery and a perfect baby as well!

I want her to know that all the interventions at her age are unnecessary. Women have forever had babies at 40+ and the way the medical world treats us is pathetic! I did very few of the tests and my delivery was perfect in every way, so was/is my daughter ;). Testing though, for the most part, is unreliable anyway. I did let them look at her heart with a 4-D Ultrasound and took home a really cool video - in color. I let them take my blood a couple of times, but that is it. But this was at a genetic doctor, my insurance required it because of MY AGE. UGH!

I and all of my kids are yeast resistant (meaning diflucan, nistatin etc is like taking a sugar pill;)

We take a rx strength probiotic (kirkmans) and caproyl (medicinal food).

I used to use kirkmans, I now use the 6 strain blend from customprobiotics.com.
