The risk that a newborn will develop vitamin K deficiency bleeding is 1700/100,000 (one out of 59) if vitamin K is not administered. When intramuscular vitamin K is administered, the risk of vitamin K deficiency bleeding is reduced to 1/100,000. While women may have misconceptions about vitamin K prophylaxis for their newborns, health care providers should be prepared with factual information. Prophylaxis is needed even for healthy newborns without risk factors for bleeding. Other forms of… 
Refusal of Intramuscular Vitamin K by Parents of Newborns: A Review.
TLDR
A renewed focus on education of and collaboration with parents is needed to address this major public health threat, VKDB, which is rare but can result in either neurologic sequelae or death.
The challenge to define the optimal prophylactic regimen for vitamin K deficiency bleeding in infants
TLDR
The introduction of combined proPHylactic strategy with prolonged oral prophylaxes after the intramuscular dose at birth has showed a decrease of the late severe VKDB incidence, Nevertheless, there is still lack of consensus about the administration scheme after the first dose atBirth.
Safety and efficacy of supplements in pregnancy
TLDR
The roles of critical nutrients in pregnancy and the available evidence on the use of supplements to reduce risks and improve maternal and fetal outcomes are discussed.
Gaps in the coverage of vitamin K1 prophylaxis among newborns in India: insights from secondary analysis of data from the Health Management Information System
  • K. Bora
  • Medicine
    Public Health Nutrition
  • 2021
TLDR
Vitamin K1 prophylaxis was not practiced in more than one-third newborns in India, and it calls for identifying the barriers, addressing the gaps and implementing newborn vitamin K1 Prophylactic more effectively throughout the country.

PREVENTION OF VITAMIN K DEFICIENCY BLEEDING IN NEWBORNS
TLDR
Evidence is provided that there is need for intramuscular vitamin K prophylaxis for all babies in order to eradicate haemorrhagic disease of the newborn and there is no evidence that this therapy is harmful.
Reasons for Refusal of Newborn Vitamin K Prophylaxis: Implications for Management and Education.
OBJECTIVE The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends intramuscular (IM) vitamin K prophylaxis for all newborns to prevent vitamin K deficiency bleeding. Given the serious implications of
Neonatal Vitamin K Refusal and Nonimmunization
TLDR
This is the first population-based study to characterize parents who are likely to decline vitamin K for their infants and whose children arelikely to be unimmunized, and enable earlier identification of high-risk parents and provide an opportunity to enact strategies to increase uptake of vitamin K and childhood immunizations.
Weekly oral vitamin K prophylaxis in Denmark
TLDR
Weekly oral prophylaxis was recommended for all infants as long as they were mainly breastfed, and compliance was good, with 94% of the infants completing the course of pro phytomenadione, followed by weekly oral vitamin K proPHylaxis.
Administration of vitamin K to newborn infants and childhood cancer.
TLDR
The alleged association between intramuscular vitamin K prophylaxis to newborn infants and childhood cancer could not be verified in the present study of full term infants born after non-instrumental delivery.
Improving the vitamin K status of breastfeeding infants with maternal vitamin K supplements.
TLDR
In exclusively breastfed infants who receive intramuscular phylloquinone at birth, the vitamin K status as measured by plasma phyllaquinone and des-gamma-carboxy-prothrombin concentrations is improved by maternal oral supplements of 5 mg/d phyloquinone through the first 12 weeks of life.
Childhood cancer, intramuscular vitamin K, and pethidine given during labour.
TLDR
The only two studies so far to have examined the relation between childhood cancer and intramuscular vitamin K have shown similar results, and the relation is biologically plausible, meaning the prophylactic benefits against haemorrhagic disease are unlikely to exceed the potential adverse effects from intramuuscularitamin K.
Vitamin K1 Content of Maternal Milk: Influence of the Stage of Lactation, Lipid Composition, and Vitamin K1 Supplements Given to the Mother
TLDR
Samples of maternal milk from nine mothers collected from day 1 to day 36 of lactation showed significantly higher vitamin K1 concentrations in colostral milk than in mature milk, suggesting that the lipid content influences theitamin K1 concentration in maternal milk.
