Product description

Product Description

What is Vitamin K? Why is it offered to all newborn babies? Does my baby need it? Should we agree to an injection, oral supplements or decide to do neither? Are there alternatives? Can we postpone the decision? Are some babies more at risk, and why?

Vitamin K has been routinely recommended for newborn babies for several decades, and many parents are happy for their child to be given this. But others want more information, have questions about why this intervention is offered or want to know whether there are downsides. This book guides the reader on a journey through the information, debate and research on this topic. It explains the issues and clarifies the different perspectives, drawing upon up-to-date midwifery and medical evidence and opinion and parents’ stories.

Dr Sara Wickham is a midwife, educator and researcher who has been writing and lecturing about vitamin K for more than twenty years. She is the author or editor of fifteen books, has edited three midwifery journals and provides in-person and online educational and consultancy services for midwifery, medical and health-related practitioners and organisations around the world.
