Many pregnant mothers, and fathers too, become intimidated by their obstetricians and agree to vaccines during pregnancy, even when their gut instinct is telling them not too. It is very important to understand that doctors who recommend vaccines are "following orders" and doing as they are told by the CDC and medical associations who also follow CDC recommendations. As doctors have shared, they do not study vaccines in medial school and relatively few do independent vaccine research after medical school. I have witnessed expectant parents who were considering vaccines during pregnancy decide against it, simply after reading the vaccine package insert. (See a sampling of excerpts from package inserts at end of this post.) For mom's and baby's health, it is incredibly important that expectant parents educate themselves about vaccine risks before agreeing to any vaccines. It's the responsible thing to do. Simply "trusting" your doctor is not enough.

The CDC recommends that pregnant women receive flu and TDaP vaccines even though vaccine package inserts state that "safety and effectiveness have not been established in pregnant women." Mothers are reporting miscarriage, pre-term labor and health issues for themselves and their children following these vaccines. A recent CDC study found that pregnant women vaccinated with the influenza vaccine had two times greater odds of miscarrying their babies compared to women who did not receive the flu vaccine
Cathy Isaacs was pregnant with twins when, against her better judgement, her doctor convinced her to get a flu vaccine. Within hours of receiving the vaccine Cathy began to miscarry. She lost her son. Her daughter was vaccine-injured and subsequently diagnosed with Autism. Listen as Cathy tells her story in the video below.
