Birth Exemptions:

For those who are planning a hospital birth but want to evade invasive routine post natal procedures such as a Hep B shot, vitamin K injection, newborn screening, or the application of silver nitrate in the newborn's eyes, a very specific birthing plan must be submitted to the hospital in advance of the birth. Hospital staff must be informed, in advance, of your needs, wants and desires where your baby and birthing experience are concerned. The same applies to midwives.

  • Create the Birthplan. Or modify one of our ours to fit your state laws and any other personal circumstances. (see below)

  • Sign the birthplan in front of a Notary.

  • Submit the birth plan to your hospital or midwife. Keep a couple extra copies in case plans change.

  • Make sure affected parties (doctors, nurses, etc) understand your requirements and wishes.

  • Plan on having one or two trusted persons stay with the mother and child to watch the child at all times while in the hospital, so no unwanted injections are given the baby.

  • The birth plan arrangements and letter should be turned in before delivery date.

  • The "Refusal to Permit Medical Treatment" form below is optional.

  • The "Refusal to Register Live Birth" form below is also optional.

Vitamin K Injection...

The Question of Vitamin K for Newborns
"Essentially all human infants are born with very low blood levels of vitamin K and, since low amounts of vitamin K crosses into breast milk, levels remain low for several weeks after birth in breastfed babies. The purpose of this natural, universal experience of low vitamin K levels in newborns is not known. ..."
"Mouse and epidemiologic studies indicate that the neonatal “deficiency” of vitamin K, which promotes cell turnover, may actually protect the developing fetus from damaging substances that “escape the primary placental screen.”
Read the rest of the article here:

The prescribing information on Vitamin K shot states that fatalities are an adverse reaction according to the Merck pharmaceutical package insert.
"The injectable form of vitamin K can rarely cause severe (sometimes fatal) allergic reactions when given by injection into a muscle or vein. Therefore, vitamin K should be injected into a muscle or vein only when it cannot be given by injection under the skin or taken by mouth, or when your doctor has judged that the benefit is greater than the risk. Seek immediate medical attention if you experience symptoms of an allergic reaction such as rash, itching, swelling, dizziness, or trouble breathing."
Potential exists for the newborn to experience hypersensitivity to any component of this medication.
Each milliliter contains: Phytonadione ............. 2 mg or 10 mg

Alternatives to Vitamin K Prophylaxis...

Although oral vitamin K is not licensed for use as a drug by the FDA, drops for oral administration are available. Typically, one drop contains 2 mg. of vitamin K. Contact a midwife in your area, or a birthing supply company (such as, or Scientific Botanicals (206 527-5521) where your health care provider can order liquid vitamin K directly.

Here's another much safer alternative that your chiropractor or naturopath can order for you.

Or buy direct from

Good article with links to sources of oral and natural vitamin K

A good organic whole food diet along with lots of leafy green vegetables is all that is necessary to prevent vitamin K deficiency in newborns.

Hepatitis B Vaccine
Most states now require the Hepatitis B vaccine for newborns. Many parents are also cornered by emergency room personnel during accident visits. Hospitals nationally are under pressure to utilize every opportunity to score a "hit." If your pediatrician understands your views, get him involved with the hospital. As a last resort, protect your right to receive quality care in by asking hospital personal to sign the following waiver. Usually, you'll never find anybody in the hospital to sign this simple form, but you well get relief from demands to vaccinate your child.

"I certify that the (Name of Vaccine)________ vaccine being administered to (Name of Child)_________ is free from all known and yet unknown zoonotic or human viruses or viral fragments and will not cause acute or chronic illness in the recipient due to viral contamination or as a reaction to the components of this vaccine. (Signature of Physician and Date)_________."

If you do get a signature, hold on to the form.

Australian Childhood Immunisation Register (ACIR) - Immunisation medical exemption Form

See this web site for information on exemptions in "daycare" (Medical only) versus "compulsory" phase of school.
Conscientious Objection
As there is no requirement for children to be vaccinated to be enrolled in the compulsory phases of school, there is also no requirement for the parents of unvaccinated children to formally conscientiously object to the vaccination of their children.

Medicare Australia


Your child may have an exemption from the immunisation requirements if:

  • a recognised immunisation provider (e.g. your doctor) signs a letter or form saying that:
    • they have told you about the benefits and risks of immunising your child and you have a conscientious objection to immunising your child (your provider should complete a Health Insurance Commission Immu-12 form),
    • immunising your child with a particular vaccine is medically contraindicated (your provider should use the Health Insurance Commission Immu-11 form),
    • the child has a natural immunity to the disease, or
    • the vaccine is not available,
    • you or your partner are a member of the Church of Christ, Scientist and you have a letter from an official of the Church advising that you are a practising member of the Church.
What are the exemptions?

To receive these benefits without being fully immunised your immunisation provider needs to certify that:

     •   Your child has a medical reason not to have a particular vaccination;
     •   Your child has had a disease and has a natural immunity;
     •   A particular vaccine is unavailable.

Official Form Required: Use Vaccine Exemption due to Medical Contraindication

TB can be detected by biofeedback machines that are hooked up to a computer, such as the QXCI, Best BioMeridian MSAS (Meridian Stress Assessment) or Electro Dermal Screening, Quantum Life System, and the F-Scan. You will need to ask specifically for a pathogen scan, especially TB. You will also need to request a printout with the results.

See below in Misc some QXCI, etc practitioners.
