not sure how I didn't post about this yet, I have been following the story on facebook. Makes me mad and so sad at the same time.

Here is the facebook page, you have to start at the bottom to get the story backwards through updates. She seems to be doing very well but is still not home with her parents. At least she is in care of her grandparents and not a foster home.

That is awful! I hope she's able to come home soon. Shouldn't their DSS be working on helping children who actually need protection instead of wasting time and resources on parents that obviously love their baby?

Holy crap! They can do that? I didn't realize you could have your baby taken away after just one complaint, I thought there had to be some kind of investigation before they just up and took your baby away. I do understand why it's taking so long to get her back though, the legal system is very slow and they can't skip steps or expedite the process. This sucks so bad! I wonder how often that happens....

I *thought* there was a lot more to the reason the c-section was recommended for her - like a lot more medical back story that made this quite a bit more dangerous in the eyes of the state.

This is the first time I've heard this story but I was wanting more details about the actual L&D as well.

I should have learned by now! The ICAN list always dissects these stories in great depth, and then I delete the convo, because the list spits out a hundred emails a day, and then months later it will come up here and I can never remember the details. Bah!

I wouldn't be surprised if there was more to the story, too.

Sigh, It was probably UC. When the hospital makes a complaint to CAS, they listen to the Dr's of course because they are the trained *professionals* They stuff like this happens

hhm....but if it was unassisted, I doubt the husband could have gotten her shoulders unstuck himself.

I hope someone can find more info out for us!

hmm good point, maybe they had a CPM, but since they are illegal in Illinois they couldn't say they did..
I would like to know the whole story too..

I believe they said they had a Midwife attended homebirth. I'm on there, it's so sad and utterly ridiculous. All this bonding time that the parents are missing with their precious little girl, so sickening.

I was very fortunate with Tesla's homebirth, since we had to transfer. Apparently it's quite common for CPS to be called on HB transfers. We totally lucked out that our admitting neonatologist, who would have made the call, was himself the product of a HB, and thought we did everything just the way we should have for the situation. I hope they get her back soon!

wow. that is one of the most upsetting things I have read in a long time and so STUPID. WTH? There are so many more important things the state could be doing. But, if they are with her parents, is there something preventing her from being there 24/7 with the baby?

i'm thinking this must have been unassisted. maybe the husband didn't quite know what he was doing, and that's why the nerve damage occured? i'm very cynical of the state, but even this story seems very surprising. i'm sure there is info lacking on their facebook page. either way, sad.

I can't imagine someone trying an unassisted breech being a first baby....but of course that's just me.
