we did two U/S (both by MY choice)...the initial blood tests...and we'll do the gestational diabetes test, because they do it in a NORMAL way (no glucola to drink...we just eat a normal breakfast and an hour later get a prick on the finger that they do in office..at which time they also test my iron)....I would refuse it if it were done any other way. Then I also get the GB testing done...I was going to decline this one on my last pregnancy but my midwife said that in case of transfer they will assume I'm positive if I dont have a test on file...I didn't want to risk antibiotics being used on me when I didn't want them...just because I didn't want an uncomfortable swab test....so we went with it....didn't need a transfer but that was one extra thing I didn't have to worry about you know....

at the one week checkup we did the PKU testing for the baby....and we also do the Vit K (oral only) otherwise we decline everythign else.

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.
