We had a beautiful homebirth 3 months and are just getting around to the birth cert. b/c we need it for travel in month. my local dept of health services(long beach, ca) won't issue one until we have avisit from a public health nurse! i am so pissed! can i refuse? has any one else been through this? it seems so invasive. like i need a nurse coming to my house and talking to me about vaccines!
