Re: Help with Legal rights!
I'm so sorry for your friend! What a terrible situation to be in. I don't have much experience in this area, but it sounds to me like your friend and her family need 2 things right away:
1. A private psychiatrist- someone needs to keep calling until they find a doc who is willing to take her on as a patient and who is willing to work with her as a nursing mother (i.e. not recommend weaning)
2. A lawyer- someone who can help her and her family navigate the legal implications of her choices
IMHO, separating a mom from her baby is putting her at risk for more severe depression and also putting her at physical risk: if she is unable to express her milk she could wind up engorged or with mastitis, and that's not going to do her any good.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
