Hi Ladies of the Mindful Vaccination forum -
As the (very new) Mod of the Vax forums I have been trying to get acquainted with every one and help keep conversations flowing. :)
I invite any one to always feel free to PM me, and I will do my best to get back to you timely! Some days are better than others, but I promise to get back to you within 72 hours unless life is too crazy.
Sharing this: "Mindful Vaccination Forum Guidelines" and Vaccination Forum Guidelines
For Mindful Vaccination (the forum you are currently in) it says:
Straight from Cynthia herself we have this thread: http://www.mothering.com/community/t/1380233/who-should-post-in-im-not-vaccinating-and-mindful-vaccination
Mindful Vaccination - This is a support-only forum for those who are vaccinating selectively, on a delayed schedule or fully vaccinating on schedule. Members who aren't vaccinating should not post here to debate or argue accuracy or opinion of things posted.
Further she wrote:
I hope this is better clarification for all of us. I apologize sincerely if I have not modded correctly with this guideline above in hand in any way. I did have some confusion, but sought clarity. Got it now. :)
Since we're all in this together...Let's read the above. Take note of it and flag accordingly.
In regard to flagging etiquette:
Flags that are put on members solely due to the fact that they are non vaccinating and posting in Mindful Vaccination are unnecessary. As long as the non vax member is showing support and keeping with the above, they can post freely in the forum.
If you see a post (even if you agree 100% with it) that is NOT supportive- Please do the right thing and flag it. This isn't a war zone, this is a place where we can all be adults and offer the support to those who are asking for it.
If you have nothing supportive to add, but would like some discussion and debate - we do have the Discussion & Debate forum. http://www.mothering.com/community/t/1369963/guidelines-for-posting-in-vaccinations-discussion-and-debate
Members who want that kind of discussion can be redirected to the Discussion & Debate forum.
Ok ladies - in all humbleness this is what I needed to be clear on so I can help serve you all better.
Please be fair, and compassionate with each other. If I can help in any way, PM me or post here. I know Cynthia or one of the other wonderful mods can answer any questions I haven't the foggiest on how to answer.
Again, I do apologize if I have made any mistakes (pffft. I said "If" LOL), but think I got it figured out now.

Now I do have a clearer picture. Thank you for your support in making this a sacred place for us mamas(and papas) who decide to mindfully vaccinate!
