Michigan mom jailed for not vaccinating son loses primary custody Mom Jailed for Not Getting Son Vaccinated 'Devastated' After Boy's Father Has Him Immunized against Her Wishes

USA Today reports that the 40-year-old Bredow, who had to serve five days in prison for refusing a court order to make sure her 9-year-old son got his vaccinations, had to fight back tears when discussing her experience after being released from jail. "It's been a rough few days to say the least".

A Friend of the Court referee, after reviewing the custody battle case, recommended that both parents, Bredow and Horne, get joint custody of their son.

The judge took away Bredow's primary custody of the child and said she would have to share guardianship with her ex-husband, James Horne, the AP reported.

A U.S. mum jailed for defying a court order to vaccinate her young son says she's outraged he's been given several immunisations while she's been locked away.

"I am an educated vaccine-choice mother and I have signed vaccine waivers and have been fully compliant with all state laws for both of my children for every school year", Bredow said before the sentencing hearing last week.

Bredow denied the claims of her ex-husband's attorney. In previous court pleadings, she said that Bredow had consented to getting the shots, meaning her refusal to do so constituted contempt.

Less than one week on, the Detroit mother says it's been the "worst five days" of her life, compounded by the news her son had been immunised.

Bredow said she has received an "overwhelming amount of support" from her community. "I was trying to stand up for what I believed in, and it was worth it for me".

"I have been the primary caregiver of my child since he was born".

"It's clear to me that you don't care about orders even if you agree to them, which you did".
