In my study, I was fortunate enough to locate a used copy of Just A Little Prick, and read it cover to cover with a great thirst. Chapter 3, The Wake Up Call, contains 12 pages of writing I will never forget. Back then I thought Hilary must have been an outlier, with her experience, but since then, I have heard her story, and worse, from enough women to know that the negative experiences I witnessed during my Ob/Gyn rotations in medical school and residency are not rare events. Sadly and at times infuriatingly, I now am certain that the field of Obstetrics does more harm than I ever thought possible. Doctors these days seem to ignore their own textbooks and medical literature in lieu of tradition; harmful tradition.
After a child is born, things do not get much better within the realm of conventional medicine and medical policy. When Hilary and Peter were raising children in New Zealand, vaccines were not given at birth and the schedule was not as aggressive as it is today. During the years, they raised their two sons, policy was changing and more vaccines were added to the schedule. Parents were awakening to the many problems in their own children due to vaccination. Hilary was one of a handful of people in the country who seriously looked into the science, and compared it to the policy and the coercive tactics of the health departments, often turning their arguments totally upside down.
I am so delighted to see Just A Little Prick back in print, available on Amazon. This book is a gem. It has a little bit of everything; real life stories and experiences, wit and humor, sound scientific support, Hilary's artfully eloquent writing style, Peter's poignant reflections on life with Hilary, on seeing the issues from his own perspective, on policy, and his own humorous and gentle style. The manner in which their chapters are interlaced, keeps some levity to this potentially very heavy topic.
This is a book I will always want on my shelf, right next to the sequel, From One Prick To Another.
