Workshop #4 - Baby’s Early Years; Vaccinations
Welcome to our third Natural Family Living discussion: Baby’s Early Years: Vaccinations. This discussion will key in on Part 2 – Baby’s Early Years: Vaccinations from Peggy O’Mara’s book Natural Family Living.
Some of the topics we'll discuss are;
- Vaccination Concerns
- Risks and Adverse Effects of Vaccinations
- Vaccine Effectiveness
- Natural and Artificial Immunity
- Increase in Chronic Disease
- Risks and Benefits of Disease and Vaccinations
- Current Vaccines and Schedules
- Vaccines and Big Business
- What are Vaccines?
- History of Vaccines
- Vaccines and Parents' Rights
- Making the Decision
- Selective and Delayed?
We realize that this is a topic that many of our members are passionate about. Please keep in mind that Mothering is neither pro or anti vaccine. You will encounter posts here that do not feel right to you and that’s ok. This is an open dialog and we ask that everyone be respectful of others' opinions. Take what feels right to you and leave the rest behind. Please be respectful to all our members so that the workshop can be a place of meaningful and respectful discussion for all our members.
We would like to invite everyone to join us no matter where you are in your thinking or feelings. These discussions are meant to be nonjudgmental so please keep in mind when reading members' responses that this is a true discussion based on Natural Family Living and not a place to debate or criticize. Feel free to tell your story; what were your initial thoughts about vaccines? Do you feel good information was available to you? What have you learned that you’d like to share? What would you like more information on?
We’re excited to offer this workshop and hope it will give our members a glimpse into the grassroots of Mothering magazine and Natural Family Living.
This workshop will be facilitated by our moderators Arwyn and Amnesiac. They are here to guide the discussion and keep it on topic. They will occasionally post references or ask questions to keep the conversation flowing. Please feel free to contact them at any time with questions, suggestions or concerns. Please keep in mind our workshop guidelines and current user agreement at all times.
We are compiling a Natural Family Living Resources Sticky which we will update with each workshop. Please feel free to refer to it for more information. For articles and information on our current workshop, please see the Baby’s Early Years; Vaccinations page.
