I did not have or plan an oops, but just wanted to reply about the consideration of not bringing your baby in if you go to get checked out. Unfortunately all hospitals are different, so you just can't know what the best thing to do is. I had a midwife-assisted home birth, and I went to the hospital afterwards to get stitched up. I did not bring my baby - I was afraid of what they would do to her. Turned out ok, but I did hear that they were really concerned about it and were considering reporting it. I guess their concern was that I'd obviously just ahad a baby, and where was she? Like maybe I'd had a stillbirth I wasn't reporting (yeah, like someone as high as I was - I was seriously happy - had a dead baby at home). Or maybe something even more sinister I don't even want to consider. Well, it turned out ok for me to not bring my baby, but even that may be a gamble of sorts.
If I had a homebirth again, whether an oops or with a midwife, I think I would call my local visiting nurse organization and have one come by the next day. Then I would feel like I had my butt covered medically, but also have a good amount of control (a visiting nurse isn't going to start ABX on my baby without my knowledge and consent, for example). I'm sure this isn't a solution for everyone, but my experience with the visiting nurse when DD had jaundice led me to feel this was an ok move. But I'm sure even so, you could end up with a bully for a nurse that forces you to go to the hospital or calls CPS.
There are no clear answers, and that's a huge problem in this country. If our choices are: use the medical model, opt out and hide, or opt out and be subject to retaliation by the medical model if you want/need them, that can lead to bad choices. What if you had a concern but didn't get checked out because you were afraid of what the hospital would do with your baby? What if you didn't go, but your baby needed help? What if you did go, and they did all kinds of things to punish you? I hate the idea of having a home birth and having to plot my best move to cover my butt while simultaneously being afraid. I should be able to take my unassisted or assisted home birthed child into the doc, or call a visiting nurse, without a thought if I wanted to. And I should be able to not bother if I thought there was no need for it.
