Typical Vaccine Schedule

newborn skin to skinWhat shots do most doctors give to babies? What vaccines do babies actually get today?

Study this schedule carefully.

Typical Doctor's Vaccine ScheduleThis means that your doctor will require a visit at 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 15, and 18 months. More visits at 2 to 3 years, 4 to 6 years, 11 to 12 years, and 15 to 18 years. That’s 11 required “well baby/child” visits.

Vaccines are given for the following diseases:

  1. Hepatitis B
  2. Diphtheria
  3. Tetanus
  4. Pertussis
  5. Polio
  6. Haemophilus influenzae type B
  7. Pneumococcal
  8. Rotavirus (oral dose)
  9. Measles
  10. Mumps
  11. Rubella
  12. Varicella (chicken pox)
  13. Hepatitis A
  14. Gardasil (HPV)
  15. Meningitis (MCV4)

The Pentacel shot contains five vaccines in one combined shot. The vaccine package insert describes clearly how nearly 4% of those receiving the shot had a serious adverse event afterwards. In the studies on Pentacel safety, the placebo used was another vaccine or group of vaccines. There were no placebo controlled studies. Please read the vaccine package insert carefully for yourself, especially  Section 6 which details the adverse reactions and Section 11 which details the ingredients.

Some doctors choose to give a combination of Pediarix (DTaP, Hep B, & IPV) and Infanrix (DTaP). Please read these package inserts carefully, especially sections 6 and 11.

The CDC has added cute graphics to their vaccine schedule – oh, and more shots.

CDC 2016 Schedule copy

Notice how they’ve added the recommendation that pregnant women should get a TDaP “in the third trimester of each pregnancy.” Pregnancy is a critically important time of development for baby’s body and brain. Please investigate whether this is wise.

Please read. Please get the facts. Vaccines cause harm. Your baby deserves your protection. If for any reason you must give vaccines, please prepare by reading through this list first.

Hepatitis B Vaccine

IMG_1731Does a brand new human need an injection of Hepatitis B vaccine?

The Hepatitis B vaccine is a good vaccine for new parents to start researching, because the CDC, most hospitals, and doctors will recommend that your baby receive this shot in the first day or days after birth. It is critically important for parents to understand the facts about both the disease and the vaccine.

This 10 minute video by the ThinkTwice Global Vaccine Institute is based on information from the Vaccine Safety Manual by Neil Z. Miler. Important issues are clearly outlined with references to published scientific data.

Hepatitis B Video

The highest risk groups for Hepatitis B viral infection are heterosexuals engaging in sex with multiple partners, prostitutes, active homosexuals, and IV drug users.

Infants and children are at very low risk for Hepatitis B infection. Less than 1% of all cases of Hepatitis B in the U.S. are among children under 15 years.

There are two different single Hepatitis B vaccines are available. Hepatitis is also commonly given in combination vaccines, such as Pediarix.

  1. Engerix-B

“Each 0.5-mL pediatric/adolescent dose contains 10 mcg of HBsAg adsorbed on 0.25 mg aluminum as aluminum hydroxide.”

“ENGERIX-B contains the following excipients: Sodium chloride (9 mg/mL) and phosphate buffers (disodium phosphate dihydrate, 0.98 mg/mL; sodium dihydrogen phosphate dihydrate, 0.71 mg/mL).”

http://www.fda.gov/downloads/BiologicsBloodVaccines/Vaccines/ApprovedProducts/UCM224503.pdf page 10 – 11

  1. Recombivax HB

Is produced from cultures of yeast. Soy, formaldehyde, and aluminum are among the ingredients used in the formulation. Each .5 ml of the vaccine contains .25 mcg. Babies are given .5mL dose which would contain .25 mcg of aluminum. It is recommended to give 3 doses at 0, 1 and 6 months. (VPI, Page 1) After receiving all three doses, babies would have received .75 mcg of aluminum. There have been no scientific studies on the impact of aluminum on an infant. One study showed that the aluminum was not immediately found in either blood or urine. The conclusion was not explored: where is the aluminum? Since the aluminum was not excreted, it  must be in the organs, bones or brain.

Neither version of the Hepatitis B vaccine has been evaluated for its carcinogenic (does it cause cancer?) or mutagenic potential (does it impact the genetic potential?), or its potential to impair fertility.

Have there been any adverse reactions to the Hepatitis B vaccine?

Engerix Post Marketing Experience (page 8)

“This list includes serious adverse events or events that have a suspected causal connection to components of ENGERIX-B. Because these events are reported voluntarily from a population of unknown size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequency or establish a causal relationship to the vaccine.

Infections and Infestations: Herpes zoster, meningitis.

Blood and Lymphatic System Disorders: Thrombocytopenia.

Immune System Disorders: Allergic reaction, anaphylactoid reaction, anaphylaxis. An apparent hypersensitivity syndrome (serum sickness-like) of delayed onset has been reported days to weeks after vaccination, including: arthralgia/arthritis (usually transient), fever, and dermatologic reactions such as urticaria, erythema multiforme, ecchymoses, and erythema nodosum.

Nervous System Disorders: Encephalitis, encephalopathy, migraine, multiple sclerosis, neuritis, neuropathy including hypesthesia, paresthesia, Guillain-Barré syndrome and Bell’s palsy, optic neuritis, paralysis, paresis, seizures, syncope, transverse myelitis.”

The incidence of diabetes rose 60% in New Zealand following a massive Hepatitis B vaccine campaign.

VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System) has 36,788 officially reported adverse reactions to the Hepatitis B vaccine. 14,800 were serious resulting in hospital stays, or life threatening. 781 people died.

Is the Hepatitis B vaccine effective? 3 doses are required. The duration of the protective effect is unknown. NEJM showed that antibody declined sharply or no longer existed in 42% of recipients after 5 years.

When the Hepatitis B vaccine was first introduced for infants in 1994, 87% of pediatricians and family practice physicians did not believe it was needed by their newborn patients.

Why is the Hepatitis B vaccine given to newborns?

Vaccination strategy targeting and limited to high risk individuals failed, but infants are accessible. So, since authorities were not able to get high risk groups to accept the vaccine, they decided to target babies.

Since babies are unlikely to contract Hepatitis B and vaccine efficacy declines after a few years, babies are currently being exposed to all the risks of this injection with for zero expected benefit

Vaccine exemptions are available. In 47 states you are allowed a religious and/or philosophical exemption. You can submit your letter of exemption in lieu of proof of vaccination for school entrance.

In California, Mississippi, and West Virginia you must have a medical exemption in order for your child to attend school without this vaccine. However, if you live in those states, my personal recommendation would be to delay the vaccines as long as possible while praying and working with others to change the legislation to allow freedom of choice. Where there is risk, and there is great risk with the Hepatitis B vaccine, there MUST be a choice.

Babies are precious. As parents, we are entrusted with their care. All vaccine manufacturers carry no liability if our child suffers any vaccine damage. We need to make sure we base our decision on facts.

Below you will find brief excerpts from the vaccine package insert for one of the Hepatitis B vaccines. All vaccine package inserts are available on the FDA website. See link below.

11 DESCRIPTION

“RECOMBIVAX HB Hepatitis B Vaccine (Recombinant) is a sterile suspension of non-infectious subunit viral vaccine derived from HBsAg produced in yeast cells. A portion of the hepatitis B virus gene, coding for HBsAg, is cloned into yeast, and the vaccine for hepatitis B is produced from cultures of this recombinant yeast strain according to methods developed in the Merck Research Laboratories.”

“The antigen is harvested and purified from fermentation cultures of a recombinant strain of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae containing the gene for the adw subtype of HBsAg. The fermentation process involves growth of Saccharomyces cerevisiae on a complex fermentation medium which consists of an extract of yeast, soy peptone, dextrose, amino acids and mineral salts. The HBsAg protein is released from the yeast cells by cell disruption and purified by a series of physical and chemical methods. The purified protein is treated in phosphate buffer with formaldehyde and then coprecipitated with alum (potassium aluminum sulfate) to form bulk vaccine adjuvanted with amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate. Each dose contains less than 1% yeast protein. The vaccine produced by the Merck method has been shown to be comparable to the plasma-derived vaccine in terms of animal potency (mouse, monkey, and chimpanzee) and protective efficacy (chimpanzee and human).”

“The vaccine against hepatitis B, prepared from recombinant yeast cultures, is free of association with human blood or blood products.”

“All formulations contain approximately 0.5 mcg of aluminum (provided as amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate, previously referred to as aluminum hydroxide) per mL of vaccine. In each formulation, hepatitis B surface antigen is adsorbed onto approximately 0.5 mg of aluminum (provided as amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate) per mL of vaccine. The vaccine contains <15 mcg/mL residual formaldehyde. The vaccine is of the adw subtype. (Page 6-7)”

Are You Prepared for Vaccines?

New baby heldIf you are preparing for you baby’s next well baby visit, you probably know about the shots. The CDC recommends vaccines against infectious illnesses and most are given as a series of shots starting at the 2 month well baby visit (Hepatitis B shots are recommended at birth for all infants). There is a lot of conflicting information available on the topic of vaccines. While the CDC, the media and doctors claim vaccines are safe and effective, many parents are convinced the shots caused harm to their baby. There are some good ways to reduce the possibility of vaccine harm. Please read the whole list, because there are many important points at the end, but I didn’t know the order to put them in, or which might be the most important for YOU to know.

  1. Be informed. Make sure you know which shots are being recommended for your baby. Keep your own records so that you can make sure your baby is never given duplicate shots. Administrative errors do happen.
  2. Record the batch numbers of the vaccines given to your baby.  A batch number is provided by the manufacturer in order to keep track of possible reactions.
  3. Apply ice immediately, or ASAP, to the injection site.
  4. Avoid acetaminophen, aka TYLENOL (USA) or PARACETAMOL (SA, UK), no matter who recommends it. Acetaminophen/Tylenol/Paracetamol depletes glutathione which is critically important in the role of detoxing the brain. Please research this, especially if your health professional recommends giving a product containing acetaminophen. Carefully read the contents of all OTC drugs. You will be surprised at how many contain acetaminophen. More details on Acetaminophen here.
  5. Give high doses of Vitamin C before, and long-term after. Vitamin C is perfectly safe and can reduce some negative symptoms. Toddlers and babies can be given 1 g/day of sodium ascorbate spread throughout the day or give 2 times the RDI/day of a Vitamin C Complex. See Dr Suzanne Humphries for excellent information on safe use of Vitamin C.
  6. Give probiotics for at least 2 weeks afterwards.
  7. Breastfeed as much as possible. Continue with breastfeeding for as long as possible. Breast milk is full of probiotics and many other factors that are critically important to boost your baby’s immune system. Nursing a baby at the breast is beneficial for comfort and healing. Many mothers find their baby wants to nurse nearly constantly after receiving shots.
  8. Luca Bugarin after shotsTake a full-face photograph of your child BEFORE the vaccine. Many subtle signs of vaccine injury can be clearly seen in the face immediately, or in the days following the injections, if we are paying attention. Notice particularly the eyes and the mouth. Sometimes vaccine damage is seen in eyes pulling in different directions or the mouth pulling up or down, in a similar way to those who have experienced a stroke. Many parents notice a pallor or lack of vitality in the face of their child following vaccines. If you see a difference in your child, that can be a strong signal that future vaccines could cause even greater harm.
  9. Take video of your child’s most advanced actions or skills. Record their speech or verbal ability. Sometimes children have a serious reaction to a vaccine and are sick for several weeks and it becomes difficult to remember what they were capable of before they received the vaccines.
  10. Explore your family history. Are there any i) Autoimmune diseases, ii) Eczema, iii) High-pitched screaming after vaccines, iv) Bowel disturbances, etc. Thousands of parents have found out the hard way that these symptoms can signal a possible adverse reaction in a family. Vaccine harm can be cumulative, which means the potential for harm can increase with each future vaccine.
  11. Get genetic testing for MTHFR gene. People with a “defective MTHFR gene have an impaired ability to produce the MTHFR enzyme (estimates range from 20%-70% or more). This can make it more difficult to break down and eliminate not only synthetic folic acid but other substances like heavy metals.”[1] Since vaccines are known to contain heavy metals, it is wise to have at least a simple saliva test to determine your MTHFR gene response.
  12. Consider delaying vaccines.The older a baby is, the better; the heavier a baby is, the better. Vaccines are known to cause more damage to younger and lower weight babies.
  13. Limit the number of shots. Perhaps no more than one at a time. This will enable you to pinpoint which vaccine causes a poor reaction. Vaccine damage is individual but can also be cumulative. Some babies seem to be fine after receiving many injections; others react to only one shot. Limiting the number will give you more precise information on how your baby is responding.
  14. Investigate the frequency and risk of the diseases. Do you know what diseases the CDC recommends shots for? Do you know the risk of the disease and if there is a way to treat your baby if s/he were to catch the diseases? This information is critically important so you can make an informed choice.
  15. Read the complete vaccine insert, especially the ingredient list. Ask your doctor if they have read the complete insert for each vaccine they are recommending. This is a lengthy document which is available from each vaccine manufacturer for each vaccine, or combination vaccine (more than one disease covered in the shot) that they produce. These documents are available from you doctor if you request one. They come with the vaccines, or you can read them from the FDA site on-line if you know the name of the shot your doctor is planning to give.
  16. Learn about why vaccines are the only medical treatment for which the manufacturer has zero liability.  Most parents are unaware of the existence of the NVICP (National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program), VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System), and the fact that vaccine manufacturers cannot be sued if their products cause damage or death. Pharmaceutical manufacturers, the CDC who recommends their products, and the doctors who administer the products are 100% liability free. This 5 minute video describes the National Vaccine Injury Act of 1986, which set up the ‘vaccine court’, and the impact on those who are injured by vaccines.
  17. Car Seat 2Research adverse reactions. Unfortunately vaccine injury is a reality for thousands, perhaps millions of families. There are many biomedical procedures and protocols families are finding beneficial for healing their children from vaccine injury, but it can be an exhausting, confusing, and expensive field to navigate.
  18. Investigate detox procedures. When neurotoxins lodge in the brain, gut or tissues, it can be removed, but there are many safety precautions you need to be aware of. Many families are achieving incredible healing from serious neurological damage caused by vaccines, but it comes with a tremendous emotional, physical, and financial cost. One mom, whom I know personally, now has a fully functioning 15-year-old. He was diagnosed on the autism spectrum at age 2. While he is now in mainstream education and is considered healed from autism, the family has spent close to $1 million for all the therapies, treatments, supplements, etc. to achieve this incredible recovery. There are resources written by parents who are succeeding at detoxing children from vaccine damage [2]
  19. Investigate exemptions, religious or philosophical, in your state or country. 47 states in the USA allow non-medical exemptions for school. You do not have to be a member of a specific religion or explain the details of your religious objection in order to claim a religious exemption for vaccines. You can get more information on vaccine exemptions from the National Vaccine Information Center (nvic.org).

Lora's 3 BoysIf you don’t know anyone impacted by vaccine injury, or if your children seem fine after getting shots, please thank God that your child has not been injured.

For some it only took one shot to send them into the spiral known as serious vaccine injury. Some families were selective about the shots and delayed them, yet their child was still injured. For others it was a progressive combination of vaccines. These families would give anything to go back in time and make the vaccine decision again.

One mom, L.G., learned about vaccine injury personally:

“I received the Hepatitis B series in my late teens because I ‘had’ to have it for college, which I later learned is a LIE. Additionally, these shots were given to prevent a disease I was never at risk for. It had been years since my last vaccines, but that series triggered my autoimmune disease. I developed an arthritis there is no cure for, that is predicted to be chronic and debilitating for the rest of my life, possibly putting me in constant pain and causing me to be unable to walk or move freely. I am currently doing well but must avoid dietary triggers, get regular exercise and rest. I’m taking a mild medication that has the potential to damage my liver. My pro-vaccine rheumatologist even agreed the vaccines I received as a teen were likely a cause/trigger for my arthritis. I just want everyone to know, if you consent to give the vaccines, you take on the responsibility for any negative outcomes for yourself; no one else is liable, the pharmaceutical companies are completely protected.”

Our doctors, the media, and the CDC tell us babies need vaccines to be safe and healthy. The reality is that there is a level of risk in giving vaccines and the CDC is fully aware of that risk. Many parents accept what they are told. Others question. Some families have differing opinions on the need for vaccines with one spouse in favor, and the other opposed.

Take your time. Do the research necessary for you to make a confident decision in what is best for the health of your baby.

Young Parents & Vaccine Information

Mom Dad Baby
[A true story related to me by the author]
Trust me, as a parent, it doesn’t feel good to have been lied to by doctors. I trusted them to keep my children safe. My heart hurts.
 
It’s not that parents are completely unintelligent. It’s the product of a young, inexperienced human being, becoming a parent, and the continuous brain washing and pressure as we try to decide what’s best for our children.
 
My son has an Autism observation meeting at the end of the month. I can’t even begin to explain how bad I feel. And I don’t know that vaccines were the only reason why he ended up how he is, but I suspect it. He was on track… Then at a certain age, he wasn’t.
 
Hep BI thought I was being a good parent. When I questioned vaccines at the doctor’s office, the doctor and nurses pushed them, saying it was for my children’s safety. I concluded that I was just being paranoid. I did think, when I signed that waiver regarding vaccine liability, it was weird. I thought ‘Why do I need to sign this? It doesn’t make sense…’
 
We refused the MMR vaccine, at the time, thinking THAT was the only problem vaccine. But I was SO wrong!
 
Hep B RisksMy husband and I held out on the Hepatitis B vaccine, but later decided to have our children vaccinated for it. Honestly, until now, I was unaware of how unnecessary, and potentially dangerous these, and other vaccines, were.
I am NOT anti-vaccine. I am PRO vaccine safety! But for now, I don’t want to vaccinate my children, anymore. Not until I know that some actual safety has been verified, legitimately! And I would love if it could stop being such a fight to not want to vaccinate. All parents should make their own decision on whether or not to vaccinate. My children are my own. I don’t need others in the world telling me what I should be doing to raise them properly. I carried them. They are mine.
Melinda Bowen
Before you give any vaccine for any reason, please read these important steps to take to Prepare for Vaccination.

God’s Work in Me

Band conductorThese aren’t new thoughts. Just regurgitated thoughts God gave me on the process He takes us through. God is transforming us to become more like Himself.

But He doesn’t do it in a vacuum.

He doesn’t do it while I immerse myself in popular culture and social media.

How does God, through Jesus Christ, bring transformation to my life?

“And we all with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image, one degree of glory at a time. For it comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.” 2 Corinthians 3: 18

He transforms us as we gaze and behold His image. I want to be more like Jesus. I want to learn how God views me, how much He loves me, and what He has planned for me. I eagerly and hungrily spend time contemplating Him and His perfection. I grow in understanding who He is and what He is like through His work in history, His work in Creation, His work in people, and His recorded Word.

We can’t improve ourselves. We gaze on Him, the author of our life, the Creator of everything and everyone around us, and His transforming power works on us, one degree at a time. Progressively.

Thank you Lord for removing the veil. Thank you for opening the access portal through Jesus. Thank you for opening my eyes to see the work You desire to do in the world today. Thank you for your ongoing transforming power through the Spirit who is at work today. Thank you that you have won the victory and I am invited to be in your victory procession.

“But thanks be to God, who in Christ always lead us in triumphal procession and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of Christ everywhere… Who is sufficient for such things?” 2 Corinthians 2:14

For Women Only

Toblerone Triangle croppedQuarrelsome or Nagging Wife

It’s better to live alone in the desert
    than with a quarrelsome, complaining wife. Proverbs 21:19

Marriage is difficult. We’ve been working on it for 35+ years and I still have so much to learn! Reading this verse in Proverbs about the nagging wife, usually brings to mind incidents of OTHER women. Rarely have I thought I might BE that woman.

As I listened to the audio Bible of Proverbs 21 last week, I believe the Spirit of God gave me a fresh insight and deeper understanding of the nagging wife.

When we hear the words “nagging wife” or “quarrelsome wife” most of us women, have an idea of what that is. We may also know someone who fits that description. But,

What does a man perceive as quarrelsome/nagging?

In particular, what might your man perceive as nagging?

Having recently read most of the old book with old-fashioned ideas, Fascinating Womanhood by Helen Andelin, I came up with this list of possible things men might perceive as nagging.

Reminders of his shortcomings in any area of life. Maybe even something as simple as reminding him that he left the milk on the counter, or left the garage door open. Additionally, almost every man will feel nagged by any reminder, however subtle or unintentional, that reflects negatively on his current role of provider. For instance, reminding him that you are making great personal sacrifices because you have such a small budget, or reminding him of how little money you managed to spend, etc. While you may genuinely feel your efforts need to be commended, they may come across as reminders that he is not providing the family with the abundance he would like to.

A wife is often the one and only place a man will reveal his deepest thoughts/feelings/insecurities/vulnerabilities. We must guard these as a sacred treasure, not to be shared with others. Never to be spoken of in anything that may be interpreted to be demeaning or belittling. Anything that reminds him in a negative way of the vulnerability he has shared with you will most certainly be interpreted as nagging.

While we must guard the treasures shared with us by our husbands, we must not allow them to burden us. We must release those deep secrets into the care of our Lord Jesus who has only affection for us. We must not hold on and allow our husband’s insecurities to weigh us down. We must learn to answer with faith and encouragement both for the sake of our husband and for our own sake.

Another action that could be interpreted as ‘nagging’ by our husband is any attempt to share information or “teach”. Most efforts to bring information or expertise and share it, usually backfire. Generally a man does not desire to learn anything from his wife. If he does want to learn from you, he will certainly ask you, in which case you must share the skills you have gained in a humble patient way. Never patronize him, or speak down to him for not knowing something you know. Never bring him new information, as if you have something really important to teach him. When we bring new information to a man he interprets that as highlighting his weaknesses. What a man wants to hear from his wife is how awesome he is. He only wants to discuss things that directly relate to him and build him up. Everywhere he turns in the world he finds challenges, competition, complaints and criticism. From his wife he wants bolstering. He wants a viewpoint that sees him as the hero.

Other common things woman may inadvertently do that can be interpreted as nagging include talking to him as if he is one of the children, making any disparaging remark about his academic abilities, his financial abilities or past mistakes, any negative reference to his physical appearance or presentation, and unsolicited reminders of any sort. Even when we have good motivations, he doesn’t want to have his actions questioned, “You aren’t going to eat that are you?” or “You aren’t eating now are you?”

Encouraging is probably the polar opposite of nagging. Our goal should never be maintaining a neutral position, but to be robustly encouraging. Encouragement is not only conveyed through the words we say. Encouragement does not hinge on our intentions behind our words. The litmus test for encouragement is how your man hears and interprets your words and intentions. While every man has the same landscape of hopes, dreams, drives and insecurities (For Women Only, Revised and Updated Edition: What You Need to Know about the Inner Lives of Men by Shaunti Feldhahn), every man is different and a puzzle for his wife to navigate. Your unique and valuable position as a wife means learning what words and actions your husband finds encouraging.

Learning how to respond in an encouraging, non-nagging manner does not mean squashing all your thoughts and feelings inside. It does not mean disappearing into a non-person state. As a wife you have a unique position and opportunity to be the one light of encouragement in your man’s life. If you see yourself in this position of honor, you will reap benefits beyond your imagination.

240+ Doctors Question Vaccine Safety

Doctor 2Sometimes it seems lonely to make a decision contrary to mainstream medical opinion. This is a list of 80+ doctors in various fields who have spent significant years of their lives investigating the vaccine issue. Their conclusion is that vaccines are not as safe nor as effective as we are being told. Some of them say it with a lot stronger words and phrases than that. If you have a doctor to add to this list, please let me know in the comments below.

What Helps Labor go Easier, Faster, Better?

IMG_1725Proverbs 14:12 says “There is a way that seems right to a MAN, but its end is the way of death.” I think this particularly applies to childbirth. If it seems right to a MAN, it might not be the best way for a woman. Of course there are some rare men, such as Michel Odent who left his OB practice to become a midwife, but overall most women, most times, are going to have a much better birth outcome by trusting the way God has made their body, and trusting a woman who respects the natural birth process, to be her birth attendant.

There is a little booklet, called The Basic Needs of a Woman in Labor, written by an acquaintance of mine from Cape Town, South Africa. This short powerful book is a gleaning of information gained through working alongside Michel Odent and is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for all pregnant couples.

Through Dr Odent’s many years (more than half a century) of attending births (around 15,000 births) in both hospitals and at home, Dr. Odent has come to the conclusion that a laboring woman needs not much more than to be left alone, simply to be attended to by a quiet, non-invasive and low profile midwife.

If you’d like to read more information on the safety of homebirths, this is an important study recently published:

Outcomes of Care for 16,924 Planned Home Births in the United States: The Midwives Alliance of North America Statistics Project, 2004 to 2009, Journal of Midwifery & Women’s Health, Volume 59Issue 1pages 17–27January/February 2014 http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/jmwh.12172/abstract

And this is a discussion of the study by the Midwives Association of North America: http://mana.org/blog/home-birth-safety-outcomes

[The study] confirms the safety and overwhelmingly positive health benefits for low-risk mothers and babies who choose to birth at home with a midwife. At every step of the way, midwives are providing excellent care. This study enables families, providers and policymakers to have a transparent look at the risks and benefits of planned home birth as well as the health benefits of normal physiologic birth.

Birth is such a wonderful, incredible event in the life of a woman. Most of us don’t have enough children to allow us to “get it wrong” too many times. I urge all pregnant or wanting to be pregnant women to choose your birth attendants with much information and awareness.

Once you have made important decisions about your baby’s birth, you need to do some research on the necessity and risk of giving your newborn vaccines. I’ve written extensively on this topic.

Appropriating God’s Blessings in 2016

Based on Deuteronomy 33

Appropriating and proclaiming God’s blessings in 2016

I am rich in favor,
Full of the Lord’s blessings.

The eternal God is my refuge.
His everlasting arms are under me.
He drives out all enemies,
Such as illness, doubt, fear, insecurities.

The Lord is my protecting shield,
My triumphant sword.
He brings security, prosperity,
Grain and new wine,
While heaven drops down dew upon me.

O Lord, hear our cry.
Bring your servants together in unity.
Give us strength to defend our cause.
Help us against all opposition.
Bring justice and healing.

For the glory of God,
And of Jesus Christ,
Our Rock,
Our foundation,
Our Savior.
