NewBorn Birthing Plan and Birth Exemptions
BirthExemptions  |   Birthing_Plans  |   Vitamin_K  |   Hepatitis_B  |   Eyedrops  |   Newborn_Screening

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.

Steps:
  • 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.

Vitamin K Injection...

The prescribing information on Vitamin K shot states that fatalities are an adverse reaction according to the Merck pharmaceutical package insert.
http://fdb.rxlist.com/drugs/drug-9003-Aqua-Mephyton+Inj.aspx?drugid=9003&drugname=Aqua-Mephyton+Inj
"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
Inactive ingredients:
Polyoxyethylated fatty acid derivative ................... 70 mg
Dextrose...................................................................... 37.5 mg
Water for Injection, q.s. .................................................. 1 mL
Added as preservative: Benzyl alcohol ...................... 0.9%

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 birthwithlove.com), 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 order directly from Amazon.com

Biotics Research, Bio-K Mulsion - 1 fl oz

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.

Eyedrops

Waivers - Take Care In Signing
If you take your new baby to an MD as opposed to a naturopath and/or chiropractor, please be aware of and careful of any forms you sign.

Our WARNING below is about signing (some) state approved and AAP created forms. See this letter from our director, Ingri Cassel, before you consider signing waiver forms.

WARNING!

Dear VacLib Members and Friends -

Wanted to give you all a heads up on state issued exemption forms. I haven't had to deal with this personally for several years, and I always crossed out sentences or clauses, and often adding some of my own, before signing their exemption of medical release type of forms. When Donna Carrillo began to diligently search out existing exemption forms and posting them, I read over a couple of them and encouraged people to make up their own whenever possible. After having a "closer encounter" with such a form - a form provided to the state of Idaho by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and used by licensed Idaho daycares, I was shocked into the VERY REAL danger of signing these forms without changing them significantly.

Any form one affixes their initials to, dates and affixes their signature to at the end is a LEGAL document. All statements prior to your signature you must agree to fully OR restrict your signature to say that you are signing under TDC - threat, duress, and coercion. The form that my daughter was told she needed to fill out for this daycare is posted here: ChildCareExemptForm.pdf. On this form, she crossed out all the "nots" and in her personal statement she further clarified that she understands fully the risks of vaccinating her child.

I have since found out that most public schools and daycares in other states also use a similar form. Basically, by initialing and signing this form as is, you are admitting to understanding that "vaccine preventable" diseases are extremely deadly and ALSO admitting to negligence for willfully denying your son/daughter the life saving protection that vaccines offer. These forms are MEANT to not only be intimidating but to catch the legally ignorant off guard. This is very serious to me since all states have adopted the federally funded Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act which gives states the right to literally steal your children for up to 48 hours -- the time they have to prove child neglect OR abuse.

If it were ME, I would insist that they accept a form that I provide them since it satisfies the law. If there are any problems or they insist on me using their form, I would cite the law and ask the school or daycare provider where it actually says in state statute that this particular form is the only form that will satisfy the law. Since your parental rights are at stake here, it is best to be vigilant and err on the side of being overly cautious.


A modified AAP form is posted here that you may wish to use with your doctor: AAPmodified.htm

AAPmodified.doc MSWord .DOC file  |   AAPmodified.pdf PDF file, best for printing.

Not all State employees are aware of the law and many exhibit the Hitler Complex. Take a firm stand. Some individuals have had difficulty getting the required forms. Such arrogance on the part of State employees should be reported to the Director of your state Department of Health.

See:   AnaiRhoads.org Why Signing a Waiver to Avoid Vaccines Can Be Considered Abuse
She is referring to the Refusal To Vaccinate Form developed by The American Academy of Pediatrics, not a regular religious or conscientious exemption letter or form.

Short Sample Vaccine Letter

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 the following manner. (Usually, you'll never find anybody in the hospital to sign this simple form):

"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.

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.
