GBS? yes, I am positive and wanted to know my status to research and decide on treatment options. (I opted to receive penicillin during labor.)
Prophylactic eye ointment? yes, for several reasons (not STDs), but hubby and I researched it quite a bit and feel that it is an appropriate precaution with my GBS status.
Hepatitis B Vaccine? No, we are delaying, and was thrilled to hear that our new family doc recommends delaying!
Vitamin K? yes, but delayed, and hopefully administered as baby is nursing.
Newborn Heelstick for PKU? Yes, but the hospital does not allow it to be taken before 24hrs of age, thus increasing accuracy. Knowing the devestating diseases it can detect, hubby and I feel that it is well worth the prick.
Newborn Hearing Screen? I am not sure how this is done at my hospital. Depending on that, we will likely allow it, but only with me or hubby accompaning her. Again, we feel that information gathered is worth potential consequences.
Obstruct livery vehicles!
