Cormit Avital became a new mother to a beautiful baby girl. Unfortunately, her elation didn’t last long before her daughter developed a cough so bad, she would “turn blue.”
From PJ Media:
New mom Cormit Avital thought she had it all figured out. Healthy, fit, and organic all her life, she refused the whooping cough vaccine that was offered to her when she was 28 weeks pregnant. In recent years, this vaccine has become a standard part of prenatal care. Doctors found that pertussis, which is a dangerous illness (especially in infants), can be prevented when the mother receives a booster in her third trimester. Her body creates antibodies against the disease and they are passed along to the unborn child, thereby preventing infection after birth.
InAvital’s case, she developed the cough after she gave birth to her daughter, Eva, who then quickly became sick as well.
“[She was] coughing to the point of going blue, flopping in my hands, couldn’t breathe, rushing [her] to hospital,” Ms Avital said.Eva had to be taken to the hospital several times, once after suffering apnoea which caused her to stop breathing for three minutes.
The newborn is now in intensive care and entering her fourth week of the disease.
“It’s just so hard to watch this tiny little thing … go from red to blue, sometime they go a bit black, and for a moment you think they are dead in your hands, they flop.”
Sure, there are many stories of parents who don’t get vaccinated and don’t vaccinate their children and nothing so tragic happens, but is that REALLY a chance you want to take with the fragile, precious life of an infant?
