But if you see a worried look on my face, know I'm slightly tormented. I don't know you, and if I do, probably not very well. The last thing you need or want are everyone's opinions about how you should parent...and least of all medical advice from a stranger, but I have seen devastation that I want desperately for you to avoid.
Part of me thinks that if I take the time to become your close and trusted friend that I can then share with you my heart, and of course then it would be appropriate. But I don't have that kind of time. It's not that I don't want to, but if I ease into this gently, it might be too late.
Did you know that miscarriage rates increased by 4250% when they started making flu shots routine during pre-natal care? Just take a second to let that sink in...miscarriages didn't double in number starting that year at a 100% increase- they rose 4250%.
Did you know that getting the flu or Dtap shot during pregnancy has been reported to cause damage to the baby growing inside you? Brain damage. When your little one is born, your medical team plans to give your tiny, perfect baby 2 shots within 12 hours of birth, one of them immediately. That first shot, Vitamin K, is not just a vitamin. It has been linked to childhood leukemia in 2 medical studies. The second, Hepatitis B, is for an sexually transmitted disease and has been responsible for cases of SIDS and autism. The medical staff might not even ask you if you want those shots and they will just administer them without your consent, and they certainly won't explain the risks of cancer and SIDS. Instead, they'll tell you your baby will die if they don't receive these shots. The truth is, a baby is far more likely to die if they do get the shots. You need to understand these things and prepare before you are in labor.
I don't know how many vaccines you received growing up...I had about 10 in my age group. Do you know that if you follow the schedule the CDC currently recommends, your baby will get 72 vaccines before they graduate high school?
I don't expect to convince you of everything I want you to know. But I'm hoping that this gives you pause to investigate this issue very seriously before taking your doctor's advice or succumbing to the pressure. There are hundreds of thousands of parents who are testifying about how vaccines have destroyed their lives. There are some links within the text that will get you started. If I handed you this note in public, go to alabasterliving.com and open the Vaccine Information page to find this.
I really wish the best for you and your baby. Connect with me on Facebook at Alkaline Mom.
