One of the most common questions we have received since announcing our pregnancy is, “are you going to vaccinate your child?” It seems that this can sometimes be a very sensitive topic that strikes a deep cord within people.

We love exploring important, sensitive topics in loving, all-inclusive ways. In this video, join Brittany as she interviews Chantel Quick about the topic of vaccinations. Chantel is a beautiful, caring human, a blogger, an avid researcher of vaccine information for over a decade, a natural, loving mama, and a good friend of ours.

We hope you find value in the information she shares in this video, and above all, hope that you feel empowered to make the choices that feel best for you and your child/children around vaccinations.
