The administration of Vitamin K to infants has become almost
mandatory. The tradition began in the 50's when mother's and
baby's were separated at birth and therefore, the baby was unable
to get the VK from the collostrum. This is no longer the case.
Mother and baby are rarely separated at birth now so there is no
need for the shot. It has many risks involved. If there were no risks
involved, it wouldn't be contraversial.
I urge every woman to completely research the risks involved with
this routine before they say "yes" to the shot. There have been
numerous studies that show a link between VK and cancer,
jaundice, psychological and physiological problems.
