Re: Vit. K shot

Just had this conversation with my doula yesterday!

she said that the shot is only really important for babies that have traumatic labor and come out bruised up.

she also said that you can get the drops and put them on your boob and the baby will get it while nursing.

but, most importantly, she said that you can help in advance by consuming lots of vitamin K in your third trimester. Fennel tea, and other things.. would have to google vitamin K.. spinach was one, I think.
