Quoting mommy4916:" im on the fence about the vit k as well, this is my 5th baby and will be a home birth, and my midwife ... [snip!] ... only needed if the mother has tested pos for an std. and that even with gbs the drops dont do anything to protect the child."
Quoting Kayla [ ]♥:" Yes, the eye drops are only to protect the baby from blindness if you have gonorrhea (sp)."
Quoting mommy4916:" wow!! so there is no point really to them if im std free?"
Quoting Kayla [ ]♥:" Sorry, gonorrhea and clamydia. Sometimes you don't know you have either, and hospitals think it's better safe than sorry... but I'm 100% certain I don't have it, so we didn't give it."
Quoting raptor mommy saves:" Oh wow I need to ask about those eyedrops aswell. I never had an STD and I don't like giving my baby meds it doesn't need."i feel the same way!
