Mama,That's great that the sw has seen through this idiocy imposed on you by the hospital. Good luck in getting some progress through the courts. Excellent that your baby is starting to heal too! How unnecessary and painful what your family had to endure, I basically left the community to uc as I just never felt comfortable that I could birth where other people may intervene. I wonder why on earth the person phones especially 3 hours after you'd birthed, they just cannot keep their noses out, shame on them. A pp mentioned about the legalities of refusing to go in the ambulance that was not called for by yourself. I think that even if they had gone away without you on board there would have been more authorities at your door pretty darn quick cos once there's a clue that a new baby has arrived, outwith hospital, that somehow that necessitates intervention. I'd like to know where we really stand on this issue legally too.
