I have been told that the very first injection my baby is likely to receive will be a Vitamin K shot and this will be give as soon as she is born.
Ouch, that seems harsh to me.
You mean my baby will go through the stress of labour, and then before she gets a proper cuddle with mum and dad, and a good feed, you are going to jab her with a needle and put foreign substances into her body?
What's this all about???
Not only that, but some mums I have spoken to about this in Thailand weren't even aware this happened to their baby, it is something that is considered standard and often gets done when baby is whisked away for checks and you may only find out about it on the bill.
So in the spirit of GET INFORMED, GIVE TRUE CONSENT I thought this was well worth a google.
