Baby Gallery

If you have an unvaccinated or partially unvaccinated baby or child that you would like to star on this page, please send your picture via email to us. We only publish first names.

You don’t have to send any details with the photo. I have included it with the following pictures as they are my children.


Robin’s mother was given the DTaP and flu vaccines while pregnant and felt horrible afterwards. She also had an itchy skin reaction  and symptoms of anxiousness.  When she asked her GP for further information about vaccine ingredients they wouldn’t give her any information and acted like nothing happened.
Baby Robin received one dose of DTaP/IPV/HIB and PCV and afterwards became ill and weak so the mother looked up the vaccine ingredients for herself and decided not to give anymore vaccines.
