Upcoming vitamin K book (comments now closed)

This summer, I’m working on a long-overdue update to my work on vitamin K, and I hope to be announcing the publication of a new book on this topic for women, families and birth professionals in the Autumn.

This post invited comments on areas and questions for me to consider for inclusion or answer within the book but the form has now been removed as we have reached the next stage of the book process. Thank you so much for your input.

This is such a controversial area! So far we have received questions about what the real risks of vitamin K deficiency bleeding (VKDB) are, what has changed in the past few years and whether there is anything that parents who do not want vitamin K can do or watch out for (and yes, there is). I will be talking stem cells, placentophagy and addressing the alleged rise in vitamin K deficiency bleeding in those who decline vitamin K (and no, none of these have easy answers or are as cut-and-dried as some people are suggesting, so we need to take a wider perspective and think very carefully about such issues). I want to make sure that the book will be as useful as possible, and am hugely grateful for your input. I will keep you posted about the books’ progress in my monthly newsletter and update emails, so please feel free to sign up if you haven’t done so already.
