To get the H1N1 Swine Flu vaccine or not to, is a question plaguing many pregnant women. With U.S. health officials making pregnant women one of the highest priorities and doctors pushing for the vaccine, many pregnant women just do not know what to do. I strongly urge all pregnant women to do a lot of research before taking the plunge for the vaccine.
With inserts for the vaccines saying that the safety of these vaccines for pregnant women has not been established, I am still shocked physicians are suggesting pregnant women get the vaccine. I mean, they will not prescribe medication if it has not been tested on pregnant women, yet they are recommending a vaccine that could possibly be fatal to these women. Apparently they feel the risk of the H1N1 Flu outweigh the possible side effects.
Miscarriage reports from pregnant women who have taken the H1N1 swine flu vaccine are starting to roll in from all over the world. Women in all trimesters of pregnancy, are reporting miscarriage just hours of the vaccine. Others within days of getting the vaccine. These are women who have had healthy pregnancies up until the vaccine, which leads me to believe questions should be raised. Can we assume it was an adverse effect of the flu vaccine or was it just bad timing for these pregnant women?
Just weeks ago I was in my 9th month of pregnancy when my own physician began talks of giving me the vaccine. The first thing I did was get on the internet and start doing load of research. I am not a fan of vaccines (for my own personal reasons), but was very scared for the life of my unborn child, if I were to get the Swine Flu. News across the web about the affects of the vaccine and reports of miscarriage did a good of of scaring me into digging deeper into the real facts. After much research I opted to NOT get the vaccine.
Dr. Palevsky, a board certified pediatrician who utilizes a holistic approach to children’s wellness and illness, offers a live interview that Exposes Vaccine Myths. The National Expositor, delivers a disturbing article, Silence about Vaccine Deaths in Media is Due to the Confidential Contracts with Vaccine Manufacturers. Organic Health, recently posted stories from several women who suffered miscarriage shortly after receiving the vaccine, all whom believe the vaccine is to blame.

ClinicalTrials.Gov, a service of the National Institute of Health reported a clinical study to determine vaccine safety in pregnant women and how the body reacts to different strengths of the H1N1 influenza vaccine. The results will be available July 2010. Participants will include approximately 120 healthy pregnant women, ages 18-39 years, in their second or third trimester of pregnancy. I am not sure why pregnant women in their 1st trimester are not a part of this study, as many women have reported miscarriage in the 1st trimester after getting the vaccine.
In this Fox News interview, a physician, who specializes in infectious diseases says the vaccine is more deadly than Swine Flu itself. He even says he will not allow his own children to receive the vaccine.
My advice for any pregnant women who is considering the vaccine is to do your research! You do not buy a car without doing research, and you should never allow any foreign matter into your body without doing your own research!
What are your thoughts on this topic? Do you think pregnant women should or should not get the H1N1 Swine Flu Vaccine? Do you think the reported miscarriages were due to the vaccine?
