My midwife told me New York State Law does not give us the choice as to whether or not we want our newborn having the eye drops and vitamin K injection. (She said we can't even do oral vitamin K.) I delivered my first child in California and it wasn't a problem if I wanted to refuse anything. The idea of giving my newborn eye drops and the vitamin K injection really, really bothers me. Is this really legal? Has anyone in New York State had any success in refusing? I'm so upset...
