Swine flu vaccine causing miscarriages?

I'm not a big fan of vaccines in/around pregnancy because your body is going through so many intense hormonal changes.  Here's an article you might want to read about the H1N1 vaccine being implicated in miscarriages.  In our area the H1N1 vaccine is mixed into the "regular" flu vaccine. 

p.s. because my husband and I teach at a college, we get "free" flu vaccines, which we used to totally take advantage of.  We've stopped in the past 5 years and have interestingly not only not gotten the flu, but been healthier than even, even as our students sneeze on us...buyer beware!

(NaturalNews) Recent data presented to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Advisory Committee on Children's Vaccines has revealed some shocking information about the effects of the H1N1 / swine flu vaccine on pregnant women. According to the report, the rate of miscarriage among pregnant women during the 2009 H1N1 / swine flu pandemic soared by over 700 percent compared to previous years, pointing directly to the vaccine as the culprit -- but the CDC denies the truth and continues to insist nobody has been harmed.

According to the CDC, nearly 50 percent of all pregnant women were vaccinated with the H1N1 vaccine during the 2009 / 2010 influenza season. Those whose physicians instructed them to get a seasonal flu shot were three times more likely to get it, while those instructed specifically to get the H1N1 shot were ten times more likely to get it. And the numbers clearly show that along with the rise in vaccinations due to the H1N1 scare came the sharp increase in miscarriages, including a slew of actual reported adverse events.
