Hey everyone! Wanting to get some suggestions on how not to feel pressured by my doc when it comes to getting vaccinated. This is my first pregnancy and in my everyday life I try to eat healthy and nurture my body the natural way.
I have never and do not plan on getting the flu shot or the whooping cough vaccine. I have my personal reasons but I hate to be questioned or looked as a bad person for saying no to what they consider "safe". Any suggestions on how i can respectfully deny without causing tension? Thanks!

Maybe it's just that I have a great Dr ,but he is pretty good with not pressuring me when I say no to something. They asked after my third baby was delivered if I wanted a vaccine for whopping chough. I had just gone through a natural delivery w a 10 lb baby and had some complications after ward and was in a I need to be left alone don't touch me stage and they just accepted my No and didn't ask agian. Thats how it should be.
I too do not get the flu vaccine, but after having a local baby die of whopping cough (we live in a small town of 800) and having it be a problem here I would most likely get it after baby is born. But I refuse to get any vaccines while preggo.
