How can you NOT research a procedure in which a part of your newborns body is surgically removed?
As for myself, I have done three horrible mistakes with our first child as well. He was an IVF (invitro fertalization) baby and therefore, I've had the whole bunch of ultrasounds with him from the get-go. I had about 5 internal ultrasounds in just first 8 weeks of pregnancy. Then I trusted my OB saying that the early test for spina bifida and downs is better than the 20 weeks one and so I had a one hour ultrasound when I was about 3 months along. Then a standard 18 weeks u/s. And then starting at 20 weeks I had an internal u/s every two weeks to make sure my cervix wasn't shortening. and so on . When I have learned how bad ultrasounds are I just couldn’t imagine how dumb I was to trust the doctors and to actually believe that u/sounds were harmless . I'm beating myself for that so very much!
Then the vit k shot at birth. While we did decline the hep B, we figured there was nothing wrong with vitamin. Wrong! My poor baby! I have read just recently that it doubles the chances of leukemia and other kinds of cancer in kids under 10 years of age .
And then there were 9 shots (vaccination delayed only for 2 months) that we 'selectively' gave to our baby! How in the world could I be so ignorant?! How could I let them to inject poison into my perfectly healthy little boy?! How?! But I did. I thought I was making informed decisions …
