Dr refuses to care for babies born at home
My friend is planning a home birth with a midwife and she has three older kids too. She needs a new pediatrician since her current one is retiring. (She has a special needs child and requires a pediatrician). Anyway, this one dr office said they were taking new patients and took all her info on her kids. When they got to the last one , the one she is pregnant with, they asked where she was having the baby. She told them a planned home birth and they told her that the dr couldn't see the baby for at reason and wouldn't see any if the kids either.
Obviously we are shocked. But what ideas do you have that might help prompt policy change? Ever had a dr refuse care based on where your child was born?
