No intention to waste your time, have not been through this. But in your shoes, I would check this with another doctor, and then maybe talk to a lawyer also.
If the other doctor says it is totally a medical necessity to confirm the health of the baby, that is one thing, that would be hard to fight. But if it seems like it is just a legal issue (hospital trying to protect itself from liability) you might be able to get somewhere with an attorney working on it.
