Hello all,
I am new to this forum, but not new to Mothering mag. I am 32 weeks pg and planning a home birth. This is my first home birth (fourth child).

I am considering the Vitamin K information and leaning towards NOT giving Vit K (instead making sure I drink alfalfa tea). I will be breastfeeding. If I do decide to do Vit K, I am considering the natural, oral formulation.

Two of my older children had jaundice. My third child didn't, which may have been due to late cord cutting. I am planning on cutting the cord after it stops pulsing this time. This is one reason why I am considering no Vit K.

Does anyone have a great resource for me or any opinions you would like to share?

There are some great threads on this here. Perhaps doing a search for Vitamin K will bring them up.
