Ahh the H1n1. This is what REALLY got my Doula life in high gear.

Back in April of 2009 the H1n1 or formally known as “Swine Flu” ( for the safety of pigs, they changed the name… I’m serious.) made its charming novel flu way to the Spring filled Untied states. “originally” from Mexico, it swiftly moved its way across the world.

The WHO…or the World health organization called for a level 6 pandemic. now for the non medical types, this does not mean that a level 6 pandemic is going to destroy the world, shut down hospitals and create total influenza panic.

It means its reached most of the world.

I sat back and watched the panic in my clinic ensue. thousands of mask were ordered, fit testing was done for  respirators. Every clinic and Hospital member had to ‘carry’ this with them. And to use it for ANY patient with a cough.

What a flippn waste of resources!

With in two weeks our entire county and state had masks on a six month back order.

Every pharmacy and and drug store was whipped clean of any and all hand

sanitizer. Tissues, gloves, hand soap. All cleared from the shelves as if some Zombie epidemic was sweeping the gray streets of Seattle, threatening to devour the very flesh they scrubbed fruitlessly.

Panic was rampant, (thanks to the national media and our government) Droves of people stood in lines all the while flooding hospitals and clinics  with people sniffling and coughing.

Patients rained on the hospitals and clinics, begging and crying to be seen, convinced ( again by the national media) that is they weren’t seen, DX and treated with Tami-Flu ( which by the way does NOT work for the FLU) were going to die right there, on the disease laden floor of the local Seattle hospital.

Thousands upon thousands were seen and then turned away. Patents who  only needed  MINIMAL self care and whom obviously could have fought out the Flu at home;  in the comfort of their bed; free from the 60,000 other diseases that frequent Hospital emergency rooms. (Including Staph and Mersa) were sent home with nothing more than a fat Emergency room bill and a discharge sheet telling them to: rest, push salty fluids and stay at home.

( And we wonder why our country is in a health care crisis we can’t even wipe our own butts with out a ‘Doctors’ help)

I pulled data from the CDC.GOV site and here are some interesting numbers they pulled from their back sides. Now do note that these are estimates. It is also VERY important to note that they stopped all H1N1 nasal swab testing back in July of 2009. Not to consider that most local facilities stopped testing  for H1n1 far earlier than that do to cost of the test, insurance companies denying coverage of them, and that the on site test could only test for type A or type B.

So there is NO HARD data.

All speculation.

And from a scientific evaluation, that’s bad science and medicine!

If you don’t have the numbers, you can’t make these statements. All the symptoms of the H1n1 are nearly identical to traditional seasonal flu ( which by the way already kills 35-45,000 people a year)

Updated Estimates from April – December 12, 2009

Using the same methodology CDC has updated the estimates to include the time period from April through December 12, 2009.

  • CDC estimates that between 39 million and 80 million cases of 2009 H1N1 occurred between April and December 12, 2009. The mid-level in this range is about 55 million people infected with 2009 H1N1.
  • CDC estimates that between about 173,000 and 362,000 2009 H1N1-related hospitalizations occurred between April and December 12, 2009. The mid-level in this range is about 246,000 H1N1-related hospitalizations.
  • CDC estimates that between about 7,880 and 16,460 2009 H1N1-related deaths occurred between April and December 12, 2009. The mid-level in this range is about 11,160 2009 H1N1-related deaths.

Note: Less than 5% of increases in the estimates from one reporting date to the next are the result of delayed reporting in cases, hospitalizations and deaths.

Now with the proper amount of fear dosed to the American populace ( those not foolish enough to swallow the snake oil codswallop our government spoons us) They called for vaccinations.

So…we’re going to try and mandate a nation wide vaccine sweep  for over 300  million Americans with an untested Virus and side effects. ( They DO NOT test vaccines!)

All of this funded of course by the American tax payer. Mr. Obama gave Glaxo Smith and Klein, Merk and Pfiser a 2 BILLION$ payout to produce a vaccine for the common seasonal cold. ( Right in the middle of a depression with almost 15% unemployment)

It takes nearly 18-24 months to grow a seed for vaccine, yet they had a H1N1 Vaccine ready to go in under 6 months. ‘ready’ to go, and testing it on young children, pregnant women and the military before  administrating it to the general populace.

Excellent, lets test on the two MOST vulnerable in our country: children, and pregnant women.

I am 100% against vaccination of pregnant women, or  any living being for that matter. Lets give an untested FLU virus to millions of women, and when they have spontaneous miscarriages three days after the immunization, the white coats will play coy and chalk it up to “it happens”. I’ve been to numerous boards where mothers have self reported adverse side effects to the H1N1.

Yet the government, medical facilities and the media do everything they can to make any woman feel as if she is mad for even thinking that a virus, injected into their body via muscular administration could not possibly be the reason her body spontaneously aborted a perfectly healthy fetus?

Many of the woman whom I chatted with describe an onset of light to medium cramping, a feeling of fatigue and sever body ache. A few women called their Dr, complaining of the side effects, and we’re told they were ‘normal’ and that they’d go away in a few days or so.

It says specifically in the package insert that NO testing has been done on pregnant women, or any studies on reproductive harm. You also get ZERO compensation should you be harmed from this vaccination:

8.1 Pregnancy
Pregnancy Category C: Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine or AFLURIA. It is also not known whether these vaccines can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can affect reproduction capacity. Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine should be given to a pregnant woman only if clearly needed.
8.3 Nursing Mothers
Neither Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine nor AFLURIA has been evaluated in nursing mothers. It is not known whether Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine or AFLURIA is excreted in human milk. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised when Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine is administered to a nursing woman.
8.4 Pediatric Use
Safety and effectiveness of Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine and AFLURIA in children below 6 months of age have not been established. The safety and immunogenicity of AFLURIA was evaluated in 298 children between the ages of 6 months and 9 years (see Adverse Reactions [6.2] and Clinical Studies [14]).


Vaccinating people is questionable to begin with, lack of studies, piss poor adverse reaction reporting ( less than 4% of adverse reactions are reported to the CDC each year)

So to vaccinate a WOMAN while she is pregnant is unethical and down right dangerous.

Why? Because of her histamine and immune response. When a woman is pregnant their immune systems are super sensitive, prepared to pounce on any bacteria or virus that invades their body. When given an injection the bodies react negatively and well…its down hill from there.

Some women experience no side affects ( that have yet to present themselves, no long term study has been done to see the lasting affects of vaccinating a pregnant woman,and or the lasting affects it has on that unborn child.

Since the push for vaccines, and the mandatory ordinances in some counties and states ( which is also unconstitutional) Autism has gone from being 1- 100,000 children to 1-100.

But that’s a topic for another page.

Do your research before you put ANYTHING in your body. Don’t let Drs or professionals bully you and tell you that you are going to cause detrimental harm to your child while they themselves refuse to take accountability for any medical harm their advice could cause.

If corned you can always ask them…

“So Dr, are YOU going to take full personal responsibility if I suffer a side affect or my child’s health is affected, and may I please have this in writing?”

Get educated. Get Smart. Get POWER!

Don’t let them deny the truth. Vaccines are about money. Not about community!
