18 months ago when I had my DD, the doctor at my hospital(who has a permanent scowl on her face, I might add) called CPS and said I wasn't taking care of myself. I apparently had a UTI(I'm figuring since I had her that day it was probably from before I gave birth) and so she called and told me "it's too soon for a UTI". The CPS lady told me that the doctor had also mentioned I've had to have my sheets changed "a little too often"...uhh what?? They basically told me I HAD to be on depression meds(because I've had a "history" of depression...who hasn't been depressed?!), so they bound me up and I ended up getting mastitis. Yaaay! :/ Well they put me on Zoloft and it made me spiral into AWFUL PPD.

 Well I went to the hospital the other night for contractions. I figured since I'm due in a few weeks I should tell them my birth plan. I told the nurse I'm breastfeeding and I'm NOT taking medications for a normal emotion that everybody will get eventually. She said "well, there ARE safe meds to take while pregnant. if you're not on meds, it will make the post-partum worse". I told her how it was. I told her I didn't even have post-partum depression until AFTER they made me bind my boobs and put me on meds!!! She kept trying to convince me and I told her it's not going to happen, and I'm not taking "safe" meds during BF.

Ugh, really? I love that hospital but if that doctor gives me any CRAP again...!!!!

Note; I didn't know I had a choice of continuing to BF whether CPS told me to or not. I Thought they'd take DD, but when CPS came to investigate later that week I told her what happened. She had no idea. & she told me they're not allowed to do that. Oh, I told them I didn't want her to be formula fed. She was in the special care nursery for a week because she was small(otherwise healthy, with jaundice for a day), come to find they were formula feeding her and not using the GALLONS of milk I pumped. I pumped SOOOO MUCH for days ahead!! Not cool. I'm not being a doormat this time.

There has to be more to this story. 

I had a history of depression too - no calls to CPS, no insistence by medical professionals that I take medication. 

What are you leaving out?

I'm not leaving out on anything. I've heard of CPS being called for ridiculous reasons, and this is just another one of those.

Yes, there are cases of unwarranted calls to CPS. But your physician called on you - not a bitter ex, or a spiteful neighbor. He/she is a mandated reporter, and typically has good reason to call. 

If you were not a threat to your child, why the call? I seriously doubt the tale you are spinning.

Why the hell would you want to go to that hospital again?
