P3's Pregnancy Community Blog: Flu vaccines are NOT safe during pregnancy!

Flu vaccines are NOT safe during pregnancy!

Please take the time to read this article and learn how it can be dangerous to have the flu vaccine while you are pregnant.
Education is key!

Ultrasounds in Pregnancy, safe or not?

It would first help you to know what an ultrasound is and does to the body. I think once people understand that, the desire for unnecessary ultrasounds would diminish. http://www.naturalnews.com/028853_ultrasound_fetus.html

Our screening of "The Greater Good"

Peaceful Pregnancy Pathways would like to thank all that came out for the viewing of the documentary, "The Greater Good" on vaccines. It was very educational and I hope people left feeling a bit more educated on the topic.


Banning companies from promoting their products in our Public hospitals!

The public hospitals or hospitals in general are a place where sick go. One reason why I believe in homebirths and why I'm a midwife. Included in this is the simple fact that it is not the time to push private labels, whether it's formula, diapers, or any other products. It's a shame that we constantly look for ways to profit in areas that I consider basic human rights.

Hospitals backing breastfed babies!

We have waited for the day that hospitals stop supporting Formula companies by constantly pushing their products on new moms. We feel the change is finally coming.
First Mayor Bloomberg is initiating a plan for NY hospitals to "lock up" formula unless it is medically necessary. Go Mayor Bloomberg!
Now we have this article below....

One step at a time I suppose, hopefully more positive change to come!

BreastMilk Pros!!!

Alert! Arsenic now....

Aye aye aye!!! Is anything safe to eat? Well our boobies are still the best, but this is good to be aware of. My only criticism of this article is that it doesn't really state how much WORSE arsenic, and other toxic substance levels would be if it wasn't organic. Just sayin...

Lead alert! For the ladies, unfortunately!

I'm sorry to have to share this but lead is VERY harmful in the development of the fetus AND is still a main component of the theory of autism due to heavy metals. BEWARE!

ALARM NEWS ON CHILDRENS MEDICINE!!

We can't understand why no red flags pop up when these people are making the medicine. Its scary and horrific that people give their children this without the knowledge of what it actually will do.
