Hospital Mother/Child rights Rights
Hello, I'm Kathleen, 31 and pregnant with #4 and new to the group.
I am researching my hospital rights because while I enjoy the security of hospital births I dislike staying long after birth. I find it upsetting to wait around for 24 hours for permission to take my child home. For the most part I keep them in the room with me, but this time I would like to be gone in 12 if possible. I opt out of hep b and vitamin K, and am not circumcising.
Have any of you birthed in a hospital and then gotten vaccines at the pediatrician next day on your own? Or left AMA without being sent to social serviced? What information can you give me? I live in Texas.
