Breastfed, Homebirthed Babies Taken Away From Parents For Not Using Hospital

It looks like it is time for an email barrage on the Washington State CPS. This is outrageous!

All three of their babies have been taken away from them and placed in the care of strangers. Levi was 10 months old when his mother, local singer and songwriter Erica May Rengo, gave birth to his twin brother and sister, at their home in Bellingham, Washington.

“Our birth was glorious,” she said, and the twins were reportedly healthy, full-term babies, who had no problem quickly figuring out how to breastfeed. The little family was overjoyed until CPS stepped in to “help.”

It is another medical kidnapping according to the parents. The Rengos have chosen a wholesome, holistic lifestyle, based in their Christian faith. But CPS has stepped in to override the parents’ decisions. Now Erica and Cleave are living what they call a nightmare, separated from their children for reasons that don’t make any sense at all to them.

Decision to Home Birth

It was only natural for Erica to choose normal, family-centered birth. Erica herself was born at home, and says that her mother was a homebirth educator and La Leche League leader (a world-wide support and education group for breastfeeding mothers). She and Cleave chose a birth-center birth with their first baby, but decided to birth at home the second time. She knew that her body was perfectly designed to work for birth. She believed this was the direction God was showing them for the birth. Erica was very careful during her pregnancy to watch her diet and exercise, in preparation for the birth. She read, researched, and prepared.

She describes her homebirth as “exquisite” and “empowering.” Morna Kai Grace and Daniel Clemente were born into their parents’ loving arms.

The birth was perfect. There were no complications with the birth or afterwards. But Erica and her husband Cleave had agreed to notify the local paramedics, in an effort to appease concerned family members who were fearful of their decision to birth at home. That is where their problems began.

The Medical System Gets Involved

Sometime after the babies arrived on October 2, paramedics arrived to find the twins nursing and everybody doing fine. The twins each weighed over 5 lbs, and the paramedics allegedly verified that everyone appeared healthy. The paramedics allegedly recommended that they go to the hospital for evaluation, which is standard procedure for EMTs.

The Rengos say they declined, telling them they didn’t want to expose their newborns to the dirty environment of the hospital. They were planning to follow recommendations they had found, which stated that newborn twins should stay home for the first six weeks of life, to give their immune systems the opportunity to build up.

CPS Shows Up

Because they chose not to go to the hospital at that time, the paramedics allegedly called CPS. A couple of social workers showed up the next day, and wanted to see all of the children. CPS told Erica that they were “here to help.” But Erica says that is not at all what happened.

When the social worker found some eczema on Levi’s skin Erica told her that she was treating it with some herbal remedies, including comfrey and calendula, as well as applying coconut oil and giving probiotics. She was also doing an elimination diet to try to locate what could be causing the skin condition. Even though it was in the healing process, the social worker became critical that Erica wasn’t treating his eczema with steroids, a treatment option that Erica wanted to save as a last resort because of the side effects. The CPS agent would later testify to the judge that Erica had neglected to treat him completely.

Even so, the eczema was the only thing wrong. Erica says, “right away they found out that the children were not in danger.” The twins were completely healthy; the house was clean; and there are no drugs or alcohol involved.

The Rengos agreed to take the children to a pediatrician, who said the babies were doing fine.  The only concern was that the twins were slow to gain weight. At the time, Erica was trying to maintain a supply for three breastfeeding babies. She says she followed the pediatrician’s advice to supplement with formula, and the babies promptly got back on track with weight gain.

  1. This is just another tactic the New World Order is implementing in their utopian vision for society.

    If the mother was an illegal emigrant or a Muslim do you think CPS would of taken the children?

    They are attacking and targeting the middle class people who are the backbone of our free society, to destroy our country from within.

    They want these children put through the “Rockefeller” pharmaceutical medical system to get their shots and Social Security numbers early to make sure none slip past the system.

    Let this be a warning. We are at war with a “revolutionary government” intent on taking our children for indoctrination into their utopian society.

    I am proud to say my folks were visionary and knew these vaccinations were part of the eugenics program, so I never got vaccinated ever.
    If they ever have mandated vaccinations anytime soon, they will not give me or mine any shots. I am prepared to give them shots first, in FMJ !!!

  2. If any of us regular people did this without a court order, it would be called KIDNAPPING! I wonder if there are any lawyers out there that would file criminal charges against CPS and the police for taking their children under color of law?

  3. This is not only a crime, it breaks the Ninth Amendment.

    It is a CONSTITUTIONALLY PROTECTED NATURAL RIGHT. How more natural can you get then a home birth? Does not everyone recognize that is the way babies were born before there were nations,
    governments? Remember that not all of our natural rights were enumerated.

    CPS is an UN American organization working towards the total destruction of the family and family values, and moving our children to state “facilities”. Can they not find someone who defends the US Constitution to take travesty of injustice and attack on the Bill of Rights protections to court and put an end to it?

  4. They wanted to make shore they got all the unnecessary shots an entered properly into the slave system. Most people don’t know it but if you are born at home an are not documented, you are a sovereign citizen. This is the only true way to beat the system. I recommend people start having there children at home. This family should sue Washington state an cps.

  5. I am pregnant, in my fourties and worried about facing this same type of problem myself, as the Navy Hospital where I will be going for my care has now implemented “group care” and “home visits” by a social worker until the child is three years old. I do not like the questions on the form that I have to fill out before the “group” appointment this week. I see where this is going. I’ve already bucked the system and refused vaccinations for my two year old, and I see myself facing even greater issues seeing that I do not want a “group” doctor appointment with other women and I do not want “home visits” until my child is three. The questions on the form are very clearly directed to determine the type of social worker that will be coming out to visit. I would have a home birth; but by law I must go to a hospital because of my history. I’ve had some issues with the pediatrician we see at the Navy Hospital for our daughter. I see myself having even more issues now due to the changes that have taken place recently because of Obamacare. We are all in for a fight.
