When I was in the hospital I had to speak with a social worker because I was under 20 and unmarried, and it was a Catholic hospital. Fortunately for me I was never referred to CAS, but I know a lot of people are. Just try to keep in mind that they have the best interests of your child at heart -- it's not anything against you, personally, they just want to do everything in their power to make sure your child is getting what he/she deserves. You should be thankful they're only visiting you, and not taking your kid away.

Also... for my son's first year I was involved in a healthy babies program where I had a public health nurse visit me at home each month to check up on my son's overall development and answer any questions I had. If you can get this in your community I would highly recommend it... they are not so iron-fisted as CAS and they will back you up if it ever comes to a court case.
