Re: Refusing Eye ointment in ontario
I'm in Ontario. My midwife offered the vitamin k shot and the eye ointment and asked if I wanted her to have either of them. I said yes to the vit k and no to the ointment. She seemed pretty non-plussed by it, saying something about it being based on old methods anyway. That was the end of the discussion. DD1 had both I'm sure, they were never given as an option, but that is one of the many things I was unhappy about at her birth. If you pipe up it should be no problem.
