Prevents bleeding: Vitamin k is crucial to prevent bleeding, and newborns cannot make enough vitamin K by themselves. It is critical to receive this shot at birth, otherwise bleeding, brain damage and death can result. It is safe for your baby to receive the shot.

No: It occurs about 5 % of the time. In developing countries where we have access to life saving measures, postpartum hemorrhage is usually controlled. Make sure you take your vitamin during pregnancy and eat iron-rich foods so that your blood count is good prior to giving birth.

Probably: You just need to take one of them. I tell patients that a centrum or one a day or two flintstones chewables are just as good as an super expensive, designer prenatal vitamin.
