I had my baby at a midwife center because I despise hospitals and the drug pushers in them. The only shot she has had was a vitamin K at birth. Hospitals are the some of worst transmission arenas for bacterias and viruses. Even the sheets aren't properly sanitized! If the hospital staff would simply put grapefruit seed extact in the rinse cycle of the linen wash, all the germs would be eliminated - but that's just out of the question I guess!
