Vitamin K Shot in Newborns - Controversy Reignites

We were given a choice between the Vitamin K shot or the oral version with our home births. However, with our hospital births we were not given a choice and our babies received the shot. I believe parents should be able to decide for themselves.

Were you given a choice as to what version your baby should receive? Were you aware of the controversy?…

    I think Jonah was given it orally, but I am not sure. I don't even remember them telling me. They only informed me of the Hep B shot.
