McLeod’s Daughters star and former drug addict Zoe Naylor has revealed she doesn’t vaccinate her children.

Ms Naylor spoke to Kidspot about her unique parenting approach and does not believe she is placing other kids at risk by not vaccinating her children.

‘If your kid is in daycare and there’s someone else who doesn’t vaccinate, you feel they’ve been left open,’ she said.

‘But if the mother of that child is homeopathically treating their child and looking after their overall wellness, you shouldn’t worry.’

Ms Naylor has three children – Ella-Blue, 9, from a previous relationship, and Sophia, 4, and Beau, who was born in May, with husband Aaron Jeffries.

The family live in Blipin in the Blue Mountains, after relocating from Bondi in Sydney.

She described their parenting style as ‘attachment parents’, saying they only take charge of their children when necessary, writes Daily Mail.

‘We have kind of surrendered any notion of control and putting the kids in any schedule. We allow them to lead with what they want,’ Ms Naylor said.

She said she believes people need a holistic approach to wellness and has a homeopath, chiropractor, kinesioligist and a medical doctor.

Ms Naylor added that she only takes her family to the doctor if is it absolutely necessary, and her four-year-old daughter Sophia has not seen a GP since birth.

The mother-of-two said she keeps her children healthy through diet, by avoiding wheat and refined sugar, and that her family rarely gets sick.

Zoe Naylor is best known for her role as Regan McLeod on Australian drama McLeod’s Daughters.

She recently revealed details about her life before she found fame as an actress, admitting she battled a drug addiction.

‘In my late teens and early 20s, I was a heroin addict,’ the 39-year-old said during an interview on Channel Seven’s The Daily Edition.

Zoe and husband Aaron Jeffrey married in 2010 after meeting and falling in love after playing farmers on McLeod’s Daughters.

  • As long as everyone is aware that her children are not vaccinated and she doesnt allow them to be around children they dont know such as in playgrounds, etc


  • This is her own personal decision and her way of life. If she doesn’t want to vaccinate her children at least don’t put any child at risk.


  • As long as she keeps her children away from others, then she can feel free to do what she likes! I only have to see a video of a young baby not yet old enough to be vaccinated with whooping cough, to have my heart broken. It’s why we should vaccinate.


  • I’m not really phased by her parenting style, that’s in her home, her choice, only she has to deal with that. The anti vaccine stand is beyond belief for me though. That involves more then just her children


  • I don’t agree with her parenting ways and thoughts, but that’s up to her I guess.


  • I don’t see the relevance of stating she was a former drug addict in the title.


  • We all have different opinions. I can appreciate & respect her different thoughts.


  • The reason her children haven’t caught any diseases is because of the herd around them who have been vaccinated. If enough of the herd stops vaccinating then all those who haven’t been vaccinated will get whatever the disease is. And these days, the old remedies and cures don’t work as well because of the super bug problem.


  • Like everyone says….if you don’t vaccinate because you’re scared your child might get mild autism…a totally treatable condition, you’re a bit of an idiot. Is it worse being mildly autistic or being rendered disabled due to Polio or suffering death from other vaccinatable conditions. I think you’re an idiot parent if you’d rather risk death than have your child vaccinated. Oh, it’s 100% proven that vaccination doesn’t cause illnesses. These people just outrage me. Keep your kids away from mine


  • Those children may not show physical signs of the diseases but if they come into contact with another child who has it, they could be carriers and pass it onto another child. If they don’t have their children vaccinated they should arrange for them to be minded at home and them be home schooled.


  • so the rest of us aren’t looking after the wellness of our children???


  • I am pro vaccinations and I just can’t understand her point of view. :-(


  • Each to their own I guess. Personally I think all her strategies are kind of weird,,but thats me personally. Who am I to judge?


  • Only time will tell whether her parenting style is effective.


  • How stupid and selfish of her. I hope her kds don’t pay the price, and that she doesn’t kill someone else’s child.
