I have never heard of anyone doing this, but you may be able to talk to the hospital. They are following guidelines set forth, but maybe you can sign some sort of consent. Other than that, you may have to go to a hospital that is further away or do a home birth. Those are probably your only options right now. I would write a letter, though, to the hospital by you and tell them you are upset that they are limiting your options for a safe birth. I would also write a note to your physician and other physicians in the area. People need to know that women are upset that their options are being taken away.
