    Is this really necessary? I so far have very little hatred against needles, and my baby would soon need to be vaccinated, but is the Vitamin K injection immediately after birth necessary?

    Yes it is. Research before and now has proved that many babies die or get critical after severe internal bleeding following what we consider normal trauma.

    Our family pediatrician said it is very important. There are children who grow up okay without it, like those in traditional and natural home births, but if you want to take the risk it depends on you.
