Something nobody seems to know about. The same explanation for the procedure is used everywhere and does not convince me. There seems to be a larger underlying reason. I found that when you refuse the screening like i did, hostilities with the nurses rise instantly. It should be done, they say, between 5 and 8 days after birth, but they took from my kids coveredly 20 hours after birth, from the incubator. I found out only because the child was bleeding from the heel when i picked her up. They could/would not give me the illegally taken sample. Whats up with that?
