We intend to refuse the Hep B, eye ointment and possibly the Vit-K as well.
I found Dr. Injac's name on our group forum and he is said to be Very parent-empowering, allows parents to make their own choices without judgement, etc...And he is a pediatrician who has hospital privileges at Texas Children's Hospital.
However, I just called Dr. Injac's office and it turns out Dr. Injac does not want to take on new patients who do not want to follow hospital protocol. In other words, he ain't down with refusing Hep-b, vit-K, or eye ointment for your newborn.
I am due March 6. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Do I need to get a pediatrician to sign off saying it is ok not to get the hep-b, vit-k or eye ointment? Does the pedi need hospital privileges?
