No matter WHAT the hospital policy or how they try to throw their weight around, you have the right to your own child even if you must sign AMA forms about what you decide. But, you know what you are signing up for if you go there, best bet is to go where you are routinely given what you and baby need and want.
A call to CPS?
Yes, I had that happen once. With the last birth. I did not want the forced csect but gave in due to their torturing me pretty much. Then, when the baby was born, they were nasty to me and would not even let me have my baby when I asked. He would be bawling in the nursery and I would be ringing their bell saying I wanted him and they would refuse. They would insult me for breastfeeding and told me I was being abusive for not letting him be bottle fed. The reason they called it abuse is they had a policy against allowing the babies to be with the mothers during shift changes and those could take hours. If they were sooo busy with shift changes, where did they find the time to bottle feed? Then, I had company when they stopped by to "teach" me how to care for my baby and such. Umm, I already had several children and in fact used to teach parenting classes. I did not want to sit there while they went through their whole thing. So, they called child abuse on me.
In the end, the social worker told me I was one of the best parents she ever met, she did not think she could handle all these children so well as me and that she could learn some things from me.
So that is my nightmare experience with giving birth at a hospital last time. So what happens if I just say no to the crap? The hospital will do whatever they have to to try to control you, including putting you through CPS hell.
