As well as being a doula, I work at a county immunization clinic so as you can imagine we do a lot of vaccines. And one that we probably administer more than any other is the one for measles, mumps and rubella. It is also one of the most controversial because of it's supposed connection to autism.

Have you had any experience using the approach and was it hard to complete the regime.
