Do this only if you feel it is necessary but listen to your body. You may be subjected to a number of procedures you may not want, and they may take your baby from you and admit him or her to the NICU.

This largely depends on the hospital, the staff, and perhaps if you were to have a tiny baby or not.  Child Protective Services may or may not become involved  if you refuse any treatment they want to do to your baby as this has occurred in other unassisted birth instances.  Remember your rights.

At this point, you can also call your midwife to come check in on things.
