DENVER -- The mother of a formerly conjoined twin is banned from seeing her baby in the hospital.

Amber McCullough gave birth to conjoined twins in August, knowing only one would survive.

Hannah's sister, Olivia, died during separation surgery at Children's Hospital Colorado.

Three months later, McCullough says hospital staff imposed a "behavior agreement" after she filed a complaint about Hannah's care.

She was limited to seeing her daughter for only three hours a day.

Last weekend her access was cut off completely.

McCullough claims it was in retaliation because she asked to transfer Hannah to another hospital in Boston.

In an email to McCullough's attorney a hospital official said the decision was made after "she was overheard making threats about treating physicians and how they will be 'sorry' for their decisions."

Amber said she might not see her daughter until she's transferred to Boston which could take a couple of weeks because of insurance issues.
