I'm still undecided about GBS too. I didn't do it with my other two, but it was sort of by accident that it didn't happen. I may bring it up at my appointment today, since I forgot to mention it at the home visit, but maybe I'll forget again! I definitely wouldn't go to the hospital just because I was GBS+, but I would consider alternative treatments or oral antibiotics.
Definitely no eye goop or vitamin K here, though I've been taking extra vitamin K myself since 34 weeks for what it's worth.
We'll try to do the PKU test again. It only worked with our first baby. But we'll let the midwives do it, and can always let the ped try too on our 3-4 day visit to her office.
As for vaxes...originally we were in the "need to do more research" mode, planning on delaying and selectively vaxing starting at age 2. Well, the more research I did, the more I was opposed. I downloaded the PDF trial results from the actual vaccine manufacturers, and it really amazed me to see just how ineffective vaxes are in a considerable percentage, and how fast any immunity fades in many cases, plus the exhaustive list of side effects...and this is from the people trying to SELL this junk to us! Then I read everything from the CDC that I could find. Plus I read a few books on the subject (it's nearly impossible to find an unbiased author, but it was still informative). Top it off with 3 cases of autism in our families (2 on my side, 1 on my husband's) and the possibility of a genetic link, and I do not want to risk injecting any of the preservatives like mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde, etc. into our children.
So in the end I'm now very against, and my husband is on the fence about a few. He's asked our pediatrician about which vaccines she thinks are "safe" so that we could just do those, and her response is always "none of them are safe, but if you want any done you can always go to your public health department office"; she's a pediatrician, an M.D., with priviledges at Children's Hospital Boston, and she doesn't think they're worth the risk with the exception of the occasional dose of tetanus.
So nope. I'm not consenting to any vaccines. Although I realize it's within my husband's rights to take the children himself if he decided to (which of course I hope he would never do, and doubt he would).
