Vaccines

Welcome to my information page to help you explore the health benefits and safety of vaccines, especially for babies and children. Every parent wants a healthy happy baby. You will find a lot of conflicting information available today on exactly how to achieve that goal – a healthy HAPPY baby. I’ve been researching this topic – HAPPY babies – for over 34 years and have learned a lot along the way from thousands of mothers and babies, books, and experts.

I urge you to take all the time necessary to find out if vaccines, and any other recommended standard medical treatments, are going to ensure that your baby is healthy and happy. If you are still pregnant you might like to explore how labor and childbirth can have a longterm impact on your child.

Bringing a precious new life into the world is one of the greatest thrills and responsibilities we may ever have in our lifetime. Nurturing a human being over time is an enormous privilege. Congratulations on taking the time to think through some very important issues. I have supplied links below to some of my compilations for new parents, grandparents, and anyone concerned about the health and safety of babies. You could think of this as a table of contents in a book. Feel free to browse in whatever order works for you. I’m always open to ideas of how I can improve my delivery of information, so feel free to make a comment or send me a message.

Be Bold, Share Truth!

I overheard an expectant father mention that his first baby was due in September.  He was excited about picking up a large package — a gift in anticipation for the arrival of his new baby. We happened to be exiting the post office at about the same time.

I boldly started a conversation with this total stranger by asking his permission: “Would you mind if I shared some unsolicited information with you?”

He answered, “Sure.”

So I started, “Please research vaccines before you agree to give them to your new baby.”

And you know what – HE WANTED TO KNOW MORE! He asked questions. He was receptive. He was APPRECIATIVE. He wanted to get the name of my website. He wanted to take my card. He was 100% supportive of his wife breastfeeding and wanted to share information about our local breastfeeding support group with her.

He totally understood that fact that there are some irregularities between the pharmaceutical industry and our government which might not be in our best interests, and was not at all offended by my approaching him. He was THANKFUL.

So, GO FOR IT. Look out for new parents. Take the bold plunge. ASK them if you can share some important information with them. Get their permission and approach gently. Parents need to be warned about the risk and potential harm of the recommended vaccine schedule.

Every parent genuinely wants the very best for their children, but they don’t have all the facts.

Shots for Babies

These are the actual shots that were prepared for a 16 month old who was “behind” on her vaccines. She was given all these vaccines on the same day: DPaT (diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis), Hib (Haemophilus influenza type B), IPV (Inactivated poliovirus), MMR (measles, mumps, rubella), Varicella (chicken pox), Hepatitis A, and PCV (Pneumococcal conjugate).

Parents unquestioningly line up their children to receive this many shots. It is routine for the doctor’s office staff to inject this many needles using both arms and both legs of baby while holding them down with force. Some babies and children actually die within hours or days after this chemical assault injected into their body. Many have serious immediate reactions which may have lifelong negative impacts. Other children seem to be ‘fine’ but return to the pediatrician’s office over time with ADD, ADHD, autism, diabetes, and various other illnesses, and they continue to be injected with yet more vaccines – all on the CDC schedule – but no one connects the dots. Referrals are made to occupational and speech therapy, and children are diagnosed with speech or developmental delay, and autism and many other auto-immune conditions or allergies.

Rarely do parents, or doctors, stop to ask WHY?

Please educate yourself, and all the pregnant or potentially pregnant people you know – BEFORE they face this many injections for their precious baby at one time. This schedule has never been studied in combination and US children are sicker than ever.

Identifying Vaccine Injury

Some symptoms of vaccine injury are obvious.[1] Others are not. If you or anyone you know experiences a baby or child death soon after vaccines, there are some tests that can be done to determine if the death is connected to vaccines. Evidence of an association is required to pursue a case with the Childhood Vaccine Injury Compensation program and there is a strict time limit for claims – two years for deaths and three years for injuries.[2] These tests are briefly described further down along with a link to the Parents Guide: What to do if Your Child Dies After Vaccination, Guidelines to Autopsy Medical Tests Parents Immediately Should Require (Guidelines) [3].

Some babies/children demonstrate immediate behavior changes including illness, pain, fever, or seizures soon after receiving vaccines, sometimes within minutes or hours. Other babies/children may demonstrate a decline over time, may develop allergies, neurological impairment, gastrointestinal disorders, or other auto-immune illnesses. For the injuries that develop over time, vaccination is often overlooked. Because the CDC and others promoting vaccines are adamant that ‘vaccines are safe and effective’ tests and research to examine a possible link between vaccines and illness are often denied.

Many vaccine injuries can take months to become apparent. If you must give vaccines, for any reason, please read this or this before you take your baby/child for injections, so that you can prepare to offset any possible negative impact. It is highly recommended to keep a health journal before and after vaccinations and list all allergies, food intolerance or aversions, unusual behavior, sleep patterns, skin conditions, gut status, etc. Small things mean a lot. Keep copies of all medical records. Ask for a copy of the record after all visits to a doctor.

Adults may be able to sue vaccine producers for vaccine injury [4] and you can probably sue for injury to your pets, but because of the 1986 Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, you cannot directly sue the vaccine manufacturers or those giving the vaccinations when a child is killed or injured by vaccines.

While most doctors of the past 50 years are not trained to acknowledge or identify vaccine injury, many are learning through experience to identify vaccine injury. Parents are also extremely in tune with their baby and are able to recognize even subtle changes in development after vaccines. Videos of your baby/child provide excellent proof of neurologic impact from vaccines.

For many, the worst-case scenario is for a healthy happy infant or child to die soon after vaccines. These cases are often termed “Sudden Infant Death” (SIDS) or Sudden unexplained death in childhood (SUDC). This term is defined as the death of a child over the age of 12 months and was officially adopted in 2005 in Pediatric and Developmental Pathology after a talk from 1999 in which Dr Henry Krous asked “Post-Infancy SIDS: Is it on the rise?” [4]

One can’t help but ask, does the increase in the number of vaccines play a role in these deaths?

Before your  baby is two years old, the CDC says they need 36 vaccines against 14 different infections, delivered via 24 needles, and containing 91 different antigens.

By the time children are six years old, a child receives 46 vaccines with a combination of ingredients that has never once been tested for safety. Could this increase have anything to do with this unexplained devastating new childhood diagnosis of SUDC?

If a baby/child dies soon after vaccines it is very important that the correct tests are done including tests for CRP (C-reactive protein), liver enzymes, cytokines panel, brain tissue samples and more. See this comprehensive Guidelines for details of all medical tests and information on attorney recommendations. [3]

“With the current practice of injecting several multi-valent vaccines [often as many as 9 separate vaccines] into an infant or toddler during the same office visit, some recipients’ central nervous systems (CNS) apparently become overloaded and/or the brain suffers dramatic injury from multiple neurotoxins and other toxic chemicals crossing the blood-brain barrier (BBB); others experience severe allergic reactions to one or more of the vaccine components. Encephalopathy or anaphylaxis can occur with fatal results.” [3]

Parents are usually in shock immediately after the sudden death of their baby/child. The government will often perform an autopsy, but the parents need to know “they have every right to request the pathologist perform post-mortem blood and tissue assays/analyses” as described in the Guidelines. [3]

“Parents may need an attorney’s legal help and/or intervention to get the proper tests performed. Nevertheless, parents have every legal right to request an autopsy be performed, including certain tests looking for toxins, similar to what is done in drug overdose deaths. Parents also have the right to request storage of samples for future tests that are developed as new scientific discoveries are made.” [3]

Chances are, if you are reading this, you or a loved one has personal experience with an unexplained death after vaccines. This is an incredibly difficult time and the agony can be multiplied to learn that a procedure you follow for your baby/child, in the interest of keeping them healthy, is one that could potentially have caused their death. My heart aches for the thousands of deaths of babies and young children every single year soon after their vaccines, and I pray these parents will find the answers they need, and will be able to help educate other parents on this subject.

Vulnerable Brains

“The early environment for a human infant is particularly important. In fact, the most vulnerable time for a human’s brain development in terms of environmental impact is from the period of birth and for several months after, in this fourth trimester. It is in this time that a human needs to avoid serious stressors, and it is when nurturing is so critical. There is a continued need for protection throughout childhood, of course, but the closer to the day of the, the more important affection is.”[1]

Does it make any sense to inject known neurotoxins into a baby on the first day of life? Or at 3 months? A babies’ brain is in such a critically vulnerable state at this time and needs to be protected. It is the parents most critically important role – to protect their babies’ brains. Every procedure must be evaluated in the light of the impact it could have on the very vulnerable brain.

Babies routinely receive three doses of the Hepatitis B vaccine which contains 0.25 mg aluminum as aluminum hydroxide starting on the first day of life, again at one month, and six months.

Babies also are routinely injected with Vitamin K within hours of birth. There are two brands of vitamin K.  Hospira, contains 9 mg of benzyl alcohol as preservative which damages the liver and contributes to the high frequency of infants who develop jaundice within two days of birth. The other brand, Amphastar,  contains polysorbate 80 and propylene glycol. Both are seriously dangerous neurotoxins. Polysorbate is known to open the blood brain barrier and when given in conjunction with aluminum, the hazard is drastically increased.

Many researchers are now suggesting that giving mothers vitamin K in during pregnancy provides protection and is far safer than subjecting every baby to a Vitamin K shot at birth (which carries a black box warning due to risk of side effects).[2]

In the rare circumstances when vitamin K is recommended, “oral Vitamin K is as effective as injectable Vitamin K and its usage is recommended in our country to reduce complications and costs of parenteral therapy.”[3]

Please research the risk versus benefit of ALL medical procedures recommended for your precious baby – especially in that critically important 4th Trimester – or the first 3 months of life.

Pregnant? Who Do You Trust?

pregnant-cdc

The CDC has been recommending two vaccines for pregnant women: The TDaP and the flu shot. Is it safe to give these vaccines?

Please inform yourself. Your doctor trusts the CDC. Is the CDC information on pregnancy and vaccines trustworthy?

Some basic questions every pregnant woman, potential new parent, grandparent, etc needs to consider:

  • Has the CDC done safety investigations on vaccine impact during pregnancy?
  • Why is there now such a big push to give vaccines in pregnancy when previously ALL medication was discouraged during pregnancy?
  • What are the potentially harmful ingredients in a specific vaccine and what is the impact it might have on a developing baby?
  • How much time has my care giver devoted to investigating the true risk versus potential benefit of these vaccines? Have they taken time to investigate beyond just repeating the CDC recommendations?
  • If mercury in tuna and other seafood should be avoided, why is it promoted as safe to be injected?
  • Have other women experienced serious adverse events after accepting vaccines?
  • Is the pertussis vaccine (included in the TDaP/DTaP) effective in protecting a newborn from contracting whooping cough?
  • Is whooping cough always deadly for a young infant? Are there any steps that could protect a baby from whooping cough other than a vaccine?

Every parent wants what is best for their newborns. We want to protect them from illness. Unfortunately our world has become extremely complicated and there are huge industries devoted to pushing products on people. We investigate which car seat is safest. We compare the car we will buy based on safety ratings. In the same way, we need to investigate all products recommended to us by anyone, even our very nice doctor.

Preparing to Vaccinate
Which Vaccines are Safe?
My Dear Friend
My personal objections to vaccines

Author: Becky Hastings, wife, mother, grandmother, passionate follower of Jesus, seeker of truth, health and joy. I seek answers to difficult questions, engaging in discussions some would rather avoid. As a breastfeeding counselor for nearly 24 years, I have a special passion for helping new parents have a happy healthy baby!

Death From Measles?

Every day parents are told by their health care professionals – both doctors and nurses: ‘if you don’t vaccinate your children, they will die.’ Parents also hear variations, such as ‘I’ve seen babies die from measles’, ‘children die from measles’ and ‘if your baby catches measles they will die.’

Physicians and pediatricians, whom all parents revere as being the ultimate source of knowledge of such things, often repeat these statements.

I have a very good friend, whom I respect a lot. She is a medical doctor, a mother, and a grandmother. She probably graduated in the late 1970s or so. She said this exact thing to a group of mothers when some raised questions regarding vaccine safety. In fact, this friend actually said “I have seen babies die from measles and it is horrible”, with the strong implication that the measles vaccination is essential to prevent death via measles, and because the conversation was very limited, the additional inference was that ‘all vaccines are needed’.

Her remark about actually having seen a baby die from measles stuck out in my brain. Since then I have heard or read many doctors who say the same thing, and it really makes me wonder. Have these doctors provided personal medical care to a baby who ended up dying from measles, or have they seen a case study, presented in a lecture with a picture of a baby that died from measles? Doctors are generally not open to being questioned about their claims, so I have not had my question answered.

Marcella Piper Terry is an intrepid researcher of vaccine safety and vaccine history. “When we bring up the fact that in developed nations like the U.K. and the United States, the death rate from measles had decreased by 98 – 99% before the vaccine was ever introduced, we are often accused of being calloused and not caring about the babies in Africa, because ‘everyone knows measles is deadly in Africa, right?'”

“Well, let’s take a look at what measles was like in Africa, way back in 1979…” (You Cannot Be Pro-Life and Pro-Vaccine, http://vaxtruth.org/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/Pro-Life-printer-friendly.pdf)

In a talk given by a doctor from Zimbabwe (formerly Rhodesia) he describes measles as a rather benign illness – even in Africa.

“In summary we know that under-nourished children suffer severely from measles, whatever their race.”

“Altered immunity, brought about by malnutrition, is the most likely explanation for the severity of measles in Africa today, and this also explains why the disease was so severe in Europe in the past.” J. H. M. Axton The Natural History of Measles, Department of Paediatrics and Child Health, University of Rhodesia, Zambezia (1979), VII(ii)

I am not saying that babies never die from measles, but that babies rarely die from measles, and that the way doctors represent the information about measles deaths is FALSE. In most cases of infant death associated with measles anywhere in the world, the prevailing cause of their death should more appropriately be attributed to nutritional deficiencies. In fact, there is ample evidence that vitamin A can significantly reduce the impact of measles infections and vitamin C in high doses can reduce the impact and duration of all viral and bacterial infections.

To routinely and categorically say that a child will die if they are not vaccinated against measles is an outlandish lie. All parents need to investigate this information for themselves. Doctors have been given a lot of information, but that doesn’t make it true. They believe what the CDC and the AAP tells them. They believe the pharmaceutical rep who is pushing vaccines. They think there is strong scientific evidence that shows vaccines are safe and effective. They have not taken the time to find out that NO SUCH SCIENCE exists.

From time to time Becky shares easy recipes that can help you have a healthier life!

 

 

How do I Research Vaccines?

For a start, please read the vaccine package inserts.

Every person with access to the internet has access to the complete vaccine package inserts of every single shot that your doctor might recommend for your baby/child. Well in advance, ask for the exact name of the shot they plan to give so that you can read the complete vaccine package insert.

You can find every single vaccine package insert by typing into your search engine these words: “FDA vaccine package insert”. You can add the name of the brand your doctor uses, the manufacturer or just the disease you are concerned about. I don’t need to give you a link, but here is the main link for all FDA approved vaccines.

There is a lot of information but all the inserts are arranged in the same way. I urge you to pay particular attention to Section 11 Description, which will list the ingredients; Section 6 Adverse Reactions, which lists previous adverse events from the shot; Section 8 Use in Specific Populations is relevant if you are pregnant and want to know if it has been tested for safety for pregnant women; Section 13 Nonclinical Toxicology, is very important. I’ve included this section from the Prevnar13, which is the top-selling vaccine product worldwide in 2015.

This means that we have no idea if this vaccine might cause cancer, damage cellular DNA, or impair male fertility (see genotoxicity). However, because it was tested on rabbits, female fertility should not be impacted.

I don’t know about you, but injecting something into my infant when I don’t know if it will cause cancer, or not, doesn’t bring me a lot of comfort.

Vaccines make a lot of money for those who make and distribute them.

Source: https://www.statista.com/statistics/314566/leading-global-vaccine-products-by-revenue/

Section 16 Storage and Handling is also an important point to consider. Most vaccines require stable cool temperatures, yet should not be frozen. Trusting that the vaccine that will be injected into your baby/child has been at ideal temperatures from the moment of manufacture, to delivery to your doctor, and while stored at your doctor’s office, is a complete act of faith.

In researching for this blog I was startled to find out that the vaccine recommended for and commonly given to every single newborn in the USA on the first day of life, still contains thimerosal. How do I know? Here is the vaccine package insert for Engerix B. Section 11 includes the information that “The procedures used to manufacture ENGERIX-B result in a product that contains no more than 5% yeast protein. Each 0.5-mL pediatric/adolescent dose contains 10 mcg of HBsAg adsorbed on 0.25 mg aluminum as aluminum hydroxide. Each 1-mL adult dose contains 20 mcg of HBsAg adsorbed on 0.5 mg aluminum as aluminum hydroxide”, but no mention of thimerosal. BUT, when I went to the GlaxoSmithKline Material Safety Data Sheets, I found this startling information:

The MSDS states clearly that the injection is 1% aluminium hydroxide and 0.1% ethylmercurithiosalicylic acid sodium salt, aka thimerosal.

I have nothing to gain or lose from the choice you make regarding vaccines. But for you and your family, it is a hugely significant decision. Vaccines are known to cause injury and too often the result is a lifelong sentence. Please research so you can make the best decision for your family, based on the true risks of the vaccine versus the risks of the infections your are concerned about your child catching. Realise that if your child does catch a childhood infectious illness, there are many things you can do to help them heal so that you only experience a temporary inconvenience.

Before your  baby is two years old, the CDC says they need 36 vaccines against 14 different infections, delivered via 24 needles, and containing 91 different antigens.

You owe it to your baby/child to understand each shot, all the ingredients and all the possible consequences. A good vaccine to research is the Hepatitis B vaccine because all infants are recommended to receive it within 12 hours of birth. DTaP/TDaP is important to understand because it is often pushed on pregnant women during pregnancy.

Which Vaccines are Safe?

Many young parents, after being exposed to some of the dangers of the vaccine ingredients, are still not completely able to shake the strong authority giving them advice. They may have a friend with a vaccine injured child. They may have read about vaccine injury and are aware that it is a true risk, but having been repeatedly told by their doctor, by the media, by family and friends, that vaccines are safe and effective, they seek a way to give the shot/s, yet detox from the poisons received. Maybe their thinking is something like this:

‘I know it’s bad. I know it has harmful ingredients in it, but I’m so fearful of the disease, or I am so bullied by people around me, that I still MUST give my child this shot. So, please tell me how I can inject this poison into my child, then make it all go away afterwards.’

Injecting poison can never be completely removed (poison is especially difficult to remove from the brain). The damage caused by injecting poisons can never be completely repaired (especially the damage to the gut and the epigenetic impact you create in your DNA). You and I will never know the level of health and wellness our bodies and brain might have achieved if we had never been injected with vaccines in our childhood, but our well-meaning parents. In the same way, when you inject your baby, you will never know what their potential for life and health would have been without those poisons. Today, in the USA, babies receive 46 shots before the age of 6. This combination has never been tested for safety and is creating a generation of sick children unknown to any previous generation.

Before your  baby is two years old, the CDC says they need 36 vaccines against 14 different infections, delivered via 24 needles, and containing 91 different antigens.

Additionally, many people are completely unaware that a lot of vaccine science is founded on the use of aborted human babies – their tissue and cells. There are many ramifications for using vaccines based on human tissue and the residual DNA that is present, which I write about in more detail here.

Ask yourself, ‘Is there a way to protect my child from illness, to make sure they have a vibrantly healthy brain and body and reach their full potential without injecting them with poison before their brain is even fully developed?’

If the answer is yes, you owe it to yourself and your child to find that route to health. You might be bucking society, or the people you respect, but your journey will give you confidence and JOY.

My friend, Ashley Cates, added this insight:

“I want to add — do not fear the infections vaccines are supposed to prevent! Your child will have a much better chance at living a healthy life even if they catch measles, whooping-cough, and chicken pox… In fact, it gives them a lower risk of cancer if they do catch it. And these diseases are not dangerous for relatively healthy children living in the USA. If you still fear not vaccinating, you know you need to do more reading and more research because there are many highly intelligent parents and professionals who do not fear those diseases because we are well-informed. We’ve finally been able to see reality through research – even after being indoctrinated to fear instead of thinking critically about vaccination.”

“Again, once mercury and aluminum get into the brain and start destroying neutrons, that is not something you can just ‘detox’ from. You cannot just undo all of that damage. You are making a major change to the growth of the brain. And God-forbid the residual DNA from the aborted fetal cells integrates into your child’s genome. (There are studies proving these things happen.)”

If you find yourself forced to give vaccines for any reason, please read this carefully and take as many of the steps as you can to help reduce to negative impact to your baby or yourself of the vaccine ingredients.

I’d love to hear your thoughts and comments below!

To My Newly Pregnant Friend

Congratulations! You have been blessed to carry a new life in your body and that brings so much excitement as well as many unknowns. Whether this was a 100% humanly planned event, or somewhat unexpected, every conception is a miracle enacted by God’s design!

Excitement stirred a strong need to write to you – but then when I got going, I had a hard time stopping; the blog became too long. If you are overwhelmed, just know I tried to be brief, but my heart is so full with a desire to share what I have learned during my journey of motherhood! If you get bored, or there is TMI, please, before you leave, scroll down to my three points right at the end!

I remember 34 years ago when I found out we were expecting our first baby. I really didn’t know anything. I had no experience with babies and didn’t have any friends having babies. It was 1982. There was no internet. No social media. No cell phones. We were young but very excited.

I’m not saying you have to be a Christian to seek the very best for your baby, but as a very young Christian, I was eager to seek God’s wisdom, protection, and leading in my new adventure. I believe God specifically led two women into my life during the very first weeks of my pregnancy to help give me direction. Both women strongly recommended breastfeeding. But they were also well aware that even women who desire to breastfeed often have difficulty. They encouraged me to be as well prepared as possible during pregnancy to ensure breastfeeding success. One thing both of these women urged me to do – completely independently of each other – was to attend La Leche League breastfeeding support meetings. They knew I would find support, information, and help to formulate and achieve my personal breastfeeding goals. Both women persuaded me that I needed to attend all four of the different LLL meeting topics prior to baby’s birth.

Since God confirmed this advice through two different women from two vastly different parts of the country, I decided it must be important and found a LLL group meeting locally! There was actually one group that met in the mornings and one group that met in the evenings, so I attended both! I also read every book available in both the LLL library and the Natural Childbirth class library. I was very eager for information that would help me make wise choices and provide a good outcome for birth and baby.

After having five natural births, and breastfeeding each baby for an extended period of time, I am so eager to help other women find the same empowerment I found through these natural processes. As my children grew, I became a LLL Leader so that I could help other women achieve their breastfeeding goals. Now that my children are mostly grown, I seek to offer greater guidance and support in the area of natural childbirth and breastfeeding. I don’t know everything but have learned a lot over the years and have learned so much about supporting women on their journey through 23 years of LLL Leadership. My goal is not to help women achieve my goals, but to think through their options and formulate their own goals.

Navigating through the complexities of modern medical care during pregnancy and raising children can be a minefield; some might say a crapshoot. We daily hear stories of awful health outcomes in babies and children: SIDS, neurological diagnosis in 1 of 6 children in the USA today, rampant allergies, attention difficulties, etc. The reality is that every second child in the USA is suffering from a chronic health condition. Additionally, in recent years, powerful psychotropic drugs are routinely given to children and even babies, despite the lack of knowledge of how these drugs will impact the child’s long term life and health. Loving, caring parents may find the advice from medical experts very confusing. We all want what is best for our baby, but how do we achieve that?

I recently heard a sermon which stated that “Love is caring enough for others to do something to help them. Seeing them rush towards harm, but not warning them is not loving.” In the same sermon, we were urged to ask “What can I do in the world around me? What breaks my heart?” The thing that breaks my heart is when babies and mothers are not given all the help and support they need to navigate a healthy birth and achieve breastfeeding. What breaks my heart is babies harmed and the breastfeeding relationship sabotaged through modern medical care! I’m not saying this is happening intentionally, but many times what works for a hospital or their staff, or their routines, is not always the thing that achieves the best outcome for mom and baby. Sometimes  hospital policy can disturb an optimal breastfeeding relationship.

My desire is to love young parents enough to help them navigate their journey to a safe healthy outcome for themselves and their baby. I especially have a heart to help Christian couples navigate this journey. As Christians we often put a lot of trust in others. This can sometimes lead to our blindly following cultural norms without research or understanding what is good for us and our baby, what is best for the ‘medical or business model,’ and what is outright deception.

While every expert will agree that babies live and thrive on breastmilk from mother’s breast alone until around the middle of their first year, the truth is, in the USA, statistics indicate that only 22.3% of babies were exclusively breasted (EBF) until 6 months in 2016. That means the majority of moms struggle to navigate through the birth experience, and the early weeks and months of breastfeeding, long enough to find the simplicity and joy of nourishing her baby exclusively through the mechanism designed by our Designer to sustain human life. This intricate fabulous design provides wonderful life enhancing nuances that will benefit baby for their entire lifetime. A baby deprived of breast milk, as well as a baby who is not exclusively breastfed, is at a disadvantage throughout life. Any substance passing through a baby’s lips that is not mom’s breast disadvantages the infant gut, known as the microbiome. Additionally, the infant gut is also disadvantaged through surgical birth rather than natural birth.

Our number one goal throughout pregnancy should not be just to have ‘a healthy baby’, but to set ourselves up for the best possible chance of EBF with our healthy baby. We need support from those who understand how to help us navigate birth and the early weeks to ensure successful exclusive breastfeeding. This is NOT a nice bonus, or ‘good for those who can manage it.’ EBF is an absolutely essential component of lifelong health and well being. Any routine medical procedure that causes even a minor impediment to successful EBF should be evaluated and perhaps postponed or denied.

Holding an absolute standard is difficult but imperative.

My goal is not to criticize others or cause others to feel guilt or discouragement. What has happened in the past can be instructive and inspirational. My first birth did not happen according to my expectations and hopes. During every succeeding birth I learned more about my body and the process of birth. I certainly didn’t do everything perfectly or even achieve all my own goals, but the process of having natural births and exclusively nourishing my babies from my breasts alone is probably the most empowering act I have ever managed to achieve in my life. I believe God gave me information, support, and dedication to achieve this and I am eager to help others have the same feelings of empowerment. Additionally, I have been privileged to see mothers whose first attempt at a natural birth and EBF did not turn out as they desired, but they persevered with subsequent pregnancies. Watching them achieve their goals after experiencing disappointment is inspiring because these women display great determination. When they succeed their empowerment extends to all areas of their life.

Living for the glory of God means I cannot ignore people rushing ignorantly toward harm. Deception in the USA medical system abounds in the area of pregnancy, childbirth, and babies. Many parents have no idea how the birth industry operates, the pressure they will face from lack of sleep, emotional and physical exhaustion in the weeks after the birth, and how it will all impact their baby’s opportunity for lifelong health. Additionally, most parents have no idea that our society is full of sick children and the critical importance of navigating the early parenting years in order to achieve a robustly healthy child.

It is well known that babies deprived of exclusive breastfeeding have a greater risk of obesity, allergies, cancer, diabetes, learning difficulties, ADHD, etc.

As a starting point, I highly recommend parents to read a short book called The Basic Needs of a Woman in Labor. While short and simple, this book contains some profound truths that can give every women great confidence when facing the mystery of childbirth for the first time.

Additionally, since I don’t have time to cover every aspect of breastfeeding in this short article, my strong encouragement is

  1. Immediate skin to skin contact with mother and baby. This skin to skin should not be interrupted for any reason and should be extensive. If mom is medically unable, skin to skin should be done with dad, or alternative family member. Ideally, baby should not be separated from mom during the entire time after birth, except in the most urgent situations.
  2. Delay cord clamping (until the cord stops pulsating or for one hour after birth). This allows all the baby’s own blood to nourish baby’s body. The cord blood is replete with stem cells which miraculously travel through the entire body and perform healing.
  3. No routine medical procedures should be performed on baby until breastfeeding is well established (minimum of 8 weeks). All procedures have the potential to interfere with the establishment of breastfeeding and impede the bonding process. Some routine procedures used in most hospitals: prophylactic antibiotic ointment on babies’ eyes (to protect from potential infection if the mother is infected with chlamydia or gonorrhoea)[1], injection of vitamin K, a bath which removes important oils and vernix from baby, Hepatits B vaccine (a disease which is spread through sexual contact or shared needles) is recommended to all babies regardless of the mother’s Hepatitis B status, circumcision (a very traumatic procedure for baby which is not medically or religiously indicated).

I pray for pregnant women to become well prepared to welcome their babies so that they can experience the wonderful empowerment of childbirth and nourishing their baby from their own body. I would value the opportunity of discussing any of these points further with you.

If you are interested in learning more about the complicated topic of vaccines for babies and children, I wrote this especially for you. Also, there is a lot of pressure for pregnant women to inject themselves with the flu shot and the TDaP (Tetanus, Diphtheria, and acellular Pertussis) vaccines during pregnancy. Please research the concept of injecting yourself while pregnant in depth before agreeing.

Wanting nothing but the best for you,

Becky
