Two seperate couples I know were pregnant during what I'm going to refer to as "the swine flu craze" of 2009 and both received the H1N1 vaccine
during pregnancy at their doctor's request. At the time, both had seemingly normal pregnancies with normal children. One of the women had a
miscarriage within a month and the other had a child that died within 2 days of birth. I'm not saying that I know for a fact that the shot caused
these things to happen, however, I do know for a fact that NO ONE EVER INVESTIGATED whether or not there was a relationship. That, to me, is somewhat
alarming. The doctor certainly isn't going to elude to the shot being the cause because they prescribed and administered said shot, and the
pharmaceutical company couldn't care less because they already had a deal with the gov't at the time that relieved them of any and all liability.
I feel bad for your friends and for anybody that this may have happened to.
I think part of the problem is that doctors in many cases, don't know this will cause harm, because a whole generation of doctors have been trained
up learning to rely on prescribing medicine. The fact that they are given incentives to prescribe medicine doesn't help either. But, I do believe
that most just don't know that better nutrition is probably the thing they should be prescribing.....
I will say, when I was pregnant in 1980 and 1982, and again in 1997, my doctors DID NOT recommend any flu shots and also, NO MEDICINE, not even over
the counter cold medicines,or even aspirin or headache medicine.
At that time, all the women I knew that were pregnant were advised to call their doctors BEFORE taking ANY medicine. Heck, my doctor even advised me
to cut back on caffeine!
There is no way my doctor would have given me a flu shot. Heck, my first OB-GYN didn't even want me to have any pain killers while giving birth!!!!
(I told him if he got a vasectomy without painkillers, I would give birth without any, lol!)
But anyway, here is some information and links (below) regarding miscarriages supposedly caused by the H1N1 flu vaccine.
Link to a good site that discusses
all sorts of vaccine information.
This is a link that shows documents specifically related to the H1N1
