Even after years of working in the medical field we are still not taught nor teaching expectant mothers this-
Vitamin K is necessary for normal blood clotting and it is. It helps to in the overall integrity of our bones. But the thing we are guilty of doing is this. When a baby is born one of the first needles it’s given is filled with a synthetic version of Vitamin K . My own children had to endure this. Yet not one midwife or OBGYN ever said it’s not truly essential. As vitamin K occurs naturally in all green leafy vegetables.
Expectant mothers need to be told about this as part of their prenatal care.
They talk about everything else and true we do. Sandra kimler says in her book SO, WHY BECOME VEGAN? Why not know how to prevent a needle being stuck into our new born baby’s ? If expectant mum’s have lots of greens leading up to the due date, then there is plenty of vitamin K in the breast milk.
We really do know so little of our own health . Yet there is so much we can do. Take responsibility!
Learn and share. If you’d like to learn more on health and Veganism that’s a great start.
