Thank you, Rebecca Dekker, once again! Whether we (speaking for birth professionals) already have an opinion or not, I think we should all know this information to be able to pass onto clients/students who are asking us what we think or know about the possible risks of getting or refusing the vitamin K shot following birth. This was a lot of work, I know it! Thank you again for clearing the myths surrounding this after-birth intervention and bringing light to fact that parents are so often bombarded with misinformation on the net, even perpetuated sometimes by doulas and childbirth educators. Well worth the $5 to purchase the pdf as a handout for clients and classes.
