i just found out the hospital our birth center uses for transfers doesn't *allow* rooming in. wtf!?! my midwives told me it's my baby though and if I end up there I can have my ped. call in an order that baby rooms in with me regardless of thier *policies*. maybe that could be an option for you? they did tell me to be prepared for *consequences* from the nurses though
if I were you I would try to change thier policy by fighting this or get your pediatrician to help.

You know what is REALLY MAJORLY STUPID about these hospital policies? They're so damn inconsistent from hospital to hospital.
I found out the hard way - after a c/s, I spent 1 hour in recovery (although my husband and doula were allowed in there), and dd had to spend 4 HOURS in an observation nursery. Her apgars were 8 and 9 and she was perfectly fine but it was "policy" for a baby born by c/s. And before the c/s, my OB had told me that of course someone could bring dd into recovery to see me. Well when the time came, no one could do it. And of course the staff had changed 3 shifts since I was admitted so it was really hard to keep track of "policy".
I agree if you can find out their reasons for their policies and try to work around them, that's the best way. A lot of the issues I had were due to staffing problems.

If I were you, I'd just have my baby at home.
Everyone has offered you lots of great advice. I hope you take some of it.
