How can I ensure my baby won't be given formula in the hospital and cps won't be called?

No formula: Just ask! most hospitals have breastfeeding initiatives and want to do whatever they can to promote breastfeeding.

What is it called when a hospital refuses to put a tracheotomy tube into this child's trachea so the parents can take the child home?

What is it called when a hospital refuses to put a tracheotomy tube into this child's trachea so the parents can take the child home?

Need more information: We can't answer this question without more detailed information about the case. But since there seems to be a disagreement between the doctors taking care of the child and the parents, this service is probably not a good place to get a second opinion. If you question the decision of the care providers, you may need to involve an ethic committee to review the case or request a second opinion from another specialist. Good luck, I hope the child eventually recovers! ...Read more

Unknown: Unable to guess the answer to your question. But I would assume your GP would like to discuss the results with you so you have a proper understanding of the results, and be able to answer any questions that you might have.

Do I need to call the hospital and let them know I am in labor?

Yes: You should always call the hospital, if you are able, to let them know you are coming in and why. They will be able to have a room prepared for you and have your paperwork ready.

I want my doctor when admitted to hospital. How can I insist he call the shots? He knows me best.

You can't: Sorry. The system is changing. Many hospitals now have "hospitalist services" who take over when you're admitted. Even in hospitals using the older system, your doctor must necessarily be in an "on-call" schedule since he/she can't be available all the time. Electronic medical records make "hand-off" communications excellent though. I advise that you see your doctor in the office after discharge. ...Read more
