Can my ex-husband insist on being in the delivery room for the birth of our child or is that my decision under HIPAA regulations?
I am in the state of WI and am in the process of getting a divorce. I am pregnant and the divorce will be final a month or two before giving birth. Child custody arrangements are being made as part of the divorce and will be shared.
When I go to give birth, what are his rights? I am fine with him being at the hospital in the waiting room and coming in to meet the baby after she is born, but I don't want him to be in the delivery room.
I also expect that he would have the right to be at the hospital and visit the baby in the nursery, but can he insist on being seeing her when I have her in the room with me or does that fall under HIPAA as well?
