I’ve been working with children with special needs for almost 20 years. Over the years parents would come to me with their stories of vaccine injury and show me videos of their healthy children walking and talking prior to receiving a vaccine, and then show me follow-up videos of these same children with a blank stare and little to no affect or speech. These parents’ stories prompted me to do my own research on vaccines, which eventually lead me to earning my doctorate and writing my dissertation on vaccine choice. In 2009, while working on my dissertation, I got pregnant with my first child. This was the year that influenza and the swine flu had hit hard, and my doctors repeatedly encouraged me to get the flu vaccine specifically because I was pregnant. I had never received a flu shot before and was extremely reluctant because of all the research I had done. However, after much persuasion and assuring me that I would receive the “preservative-free” vaccine, I complied and got the shot. Two nights later, at 13 weeks pregnant, I awoke at 2am with amniotic fluid pouring out of me. I rushed to the hospital where I was told my baby wouldn’t survive because I only had 5% of amniotic fluid left. But I’m not one to give up, so I put myself on bedrest, despite so many professional and personal opinions to terminate my pregnancy, I researched how to generate amniotic fluid, drank lots of water, ate extremely healthy, and ¬†prayed for the health of myself and my baby. Miraculously, by 20 weeks my fluid was back to 100%, doctors remarked that they had never seen anything like this in all their years of practicing, and I gave birth to a healthy baby boy at 37 weeks. This is my vaccine story and the reason why I fight to protect others from toxic vaccines.
