just got done reading the rest. i am so glad that she is home with you. beautiful name! beautiful children and family! congratulations. i am so sorry that things went the way they did. how sad and frustrating!!!!
i know not all hospitals are the same and it sounds like PR is a piece of work to say the very very least, but in a place that forces you to go to the hospital or calls child services in to have your baby removed sounds like a place that would make up whatever it could.
when i worked maternal child heath we had a mom that delivered in her car at the doors of the ER. she wanted to be admitted, her choice. the ONLY issue was because the baby wasn't born in the hospital the policy was that the baby had to be bathed before they were allowed to enter the nursery. again, these were the MOM'S choices. so, i gave the baby a bath and that was the end of it. the baby never went to the nursery and the mom was discharged the next morning, i worked night shift so it was in the middle of the night that the baby was born. i guess since she was so close when she delivered she wanted to get seen??? i don't know.
no antibiotics, not even really admitted as a patient. no nurse did vitals on the baby even if i recall correctly. so, of course every hospital does things differently but it sounds like PR has some serious control issues!!!!! it sounds like you give up alot of your rights there to make choices for yourself.
i hope things are great from here on out! i have never been involved with social services, but i think i'd be as proactive as i possibly could. don't give the control freaks anymore reason to display their need to control. yuck!
