Oh my! Do you have any other details? Were mom and baby safe? How did they find out? That's very sad!
|mom had a raging yeast infections with major discharge, could not get ahold of her friend, did not know what to do so she went to the hospital to find out what she should do. they ended up telling them that they were having a unassisted birth, and of course everyone freaked out and told them how unsafe it is to do a birth like that.|
next day cps showed up at there house and said they would be back in a few days since they found out her due date and they would check on her.
mom went into labor that afternoon, had baby 36 hours later, cps showed up 4 days later with SEVEN people at their door. dad said sorry, not letting you in unless you have court order, they said we are just here to check and see if mom and baby are alive, please let us in. so they did. all seven people told mom and dad ( very young mom and day who are all by themselves ) that baby needs to go to the hospital. finally mom and dad "let" them take baby to hospital.
their friend calls and baby is no longer in the hospital but in foster care, because there is nothing wrong with baby.
mom MAY be let to go see baby today, ONCE, and maybe nurse. Mama is pumping, her milk just came in."

Isn't Washington supposed to be a friendly state for homebirthing or maybe I am all mixed up.
Either way this just sucks
