As flu season nears, pregnant women urged to get shots - Health - Pregnancy - msnbc.com

We've never had the flu shot in our family except when it was strongly pushed while Robbie was in the NICU. I really don't know how they can say that anything like this is safe for pregnant women with all the ingredients in them.... JMO.

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.

And WHY do "they" think that it's ok to push and push and push pregnant women to get these vaccines. When pregnant women don't get the vaccines then they're scared into it by horror stories... I know I was literally berated by everyone I knew to get the H1N1 shot because if I didn't, my baby would die! W... T... F...

Yup, I got bullied into it when I was pregnant, and am so mad at myself for giving in. My dr pushed the H1N1, but since they didn't carry it in the office, I just kept telling her it wasn't available to me. I will not be getting another one, that is for sure!

My midwife did not recommend flu shots for her patients. She did not feel comfortable with it and that is why I picked her. It is unfortunate they are still pushing them.

Yep I was pushed to get the h1n1 when I was pregnant- every appointment I was harassed by the staff and nurses.. but I loved the actual doctor so I stayed.

Luckily with my last pregnancy, I was not pushed into getting the H1N1 vaccine. I had home birth midwives, so they were definitely more naturally minded. I did however get H1N1 at 11 or 12 weeks and ended up in the ER on Thanksgiving. It honestly wasn't that bad... I got fluids and some pain meds and went home.

I'm surprised at how many pregnant moms get pressured into flu shots! This is my 3rd baby and it has never once been mentioned by any OB or midwife I have seen.
