, Sept. 8 (Xinhua) -- First-time mothers are increasingly hesitant to vaccinate their children, according to a study released Friday.
The study said that nearly half of all first-time mothers had concerns over vaccinating their children.
The study conducted by the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute found that only 73 percent of mothers they surveyed had decided to vaccinate their children by the time they ready to give birth, while just under 90 percent of mothers who already had children were sure about vaccinating their children.
Lead author on the study Margie Danchin told Xinhua on Friday that the results of the study were "concerning", especially considering the vast difference between first-time mothers and those who were more experienced.
"It really highlights the fact that first-time mums are often facing this question about vaccines for the first time for their kids Nike Air Max 270 Blanche Noir Homme Pas Cher
, and that they are really perplexed by it, and have concerns," Danchin said.
A particular worry is the rise of the anti-vaccination movement, or "anti-vaxxers" Homme Nike Air Max 270 Noir Verte Pas Cher
, who spread misinformation about vaccines, with a doctor in Melbourne, John Piesse, recently being forced to stop practicing medicine in August after speaking at a forum and bragging about helping mothers avoid getting vaccinations for their newborn children.
Danchin believed that these anti-vax groups can be "very vocal" Homme Nike Air Max 270 Midnight Marine Pas Cher
, causing parents to question the conclusive scientific evidence showing that vaccinations are necessary to protect children at the developmental stages of their lives.
"(Those groups) make parents doubt the science, and certainly get parents to question what information is reputable and what they should trust. So I think it's truly the job of us as strong vaccine advocates to provide parents with suitable clear information," Danchin said.
"We really want to target the healthcare providers in pregnancy, so predominantly midwives in the public health setting Homme Nike Air Max 270 Clair Bone Pas Cher
, but also obstetricians - because this study will not only be about childhood vaccinations."
"We also need to address maternal vaccines, and that's flu and whooping cough for the mothers, as well as the vaccines for children after birth,"
"So Nike Air Max 270 Hot Punch Homme Pas Cher
, we want to try and normalised these vaccines discussions in pregnancy so that we know they will occur, and support midwives in particular who have these conversations," she added.
Only two thirds of the mothers that were assessed as part of the study felt that they were given adequate information regarding vaccines during their pregnancy.

GUIYANG， Aug. 31 (Xinhua) -- Southwest China's Guizhou Province has started to move 8，000 people from their homes to make way for the world's largest radio telescope which will be completed in September， local authorities said Wednesday.
The people being moved out are from eight villages in Pingtang County， of Qiannan Buyi and Miao autonomous prefecture.
With a dish the size of 30 football grounds， FAST， the Five hundred meter， Aperture Spherical Telescope， is made of 4，450 panels. Scientists have depicted it as a super-sensitive "ear"， capable of spotting very weak messages - if there are any - from space.
Upon completion in September， FAST will require radio silence within a 5-kilometer radius.
A relocation budget is about 1.8 billion yuan (about 269 million U.S. dollars)， has come from the poverty relief fund and bank loans. About a third of those being resettled are living under poverty line， and meet national requirements for resettlement， said Jiang Xiaoxiang， deputy head of the Pingtang County.
Over 600 apartments have been built in two new settlements， about 10 kilometers from their original homes.
The villagers will be compensated in cash， or with new housing. Those who lost their lands will also be compensated， said Jiang. They will be offered job in tourism and support services for the FAST project.
Construction of the FAST began in March 2011 at a cost of 1.2 billion yuan.
Upon completion， the telescope will be the world's largest， overtaking Puerto Rico's 300-meter Arecibo Observatory. Enditem
ISLAMABAD, Dec. 17 (Xinhua) -- The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has approved a loan of 167.2 million U.S. dollars to improve the power distribution system in Pakistn to provide reliable and regular electricity to businesses and domestic consumers.
The loan is part of the 810 million U.S. dollars Power Distribution Enhancement Investment Program approved by ADB in 2008 Homme Nike Air Max 270 Grape Pas Cher
, a statement issued by the ADB Islamabad office said on Tuesday.
The multi-tranche financing facility (MFF) targets investment in priority areas to reduce power losses and increase the reliability of the power distribution system.
"There is an urgent need for more dependable power distribution and this loan underscores ADB's commitment to work with the government to resolve the current power crisis," said Klaus Gerhaeusser, Director General of ADB's Central and West Asia Department.
The country's energy crisis has led to a sharp reduction in investment, badly hurt industry and small businesses Femme Nike Air Max 1 Anniversary Aqua Pas Cher
, and in 2012 lopped an estimated two percentage points off annual gross domestic product, the ADB said.
"The rising costs of imported fuel oil which accounts for over a third of the country's energy generation are also putting an increasingly unsustainab.
