My Mood:
My c section birth plan...

I can't wait to present this to the Dr's and see their response. There is no reason to not honor my requests, im hoping they don't try to give me crap. Im making sure they are agreeable early on because if not I will be Dr shopping.

For the birth
My doula and husband will be present at the surgical delivery
PLEASE Explain/Confirm Any/All procedures with myself or my husband beforehand.
NO General Anesthesia or anything to make me drowsy or tired.
I will be having an epidural, I do not want a spinal, PLEASE insert catheter AFTER epidural
Please do not restrain my arms
No chit chat or small talk please
Please pull baby out as slowly as possible, to allow fluid to be naturally expelled from the lungs
Please allow the cord to stop pulsating prior to cutting
I would like the drape dropped at the moment of birth to see the baby born
PLEASE allow IMMEDIATE Skin-to-Skin contact so I may avoid Birth Trauma
I would prefer the newborn assessment and APGARS to be done with the baby on my chest
Should the baby NEED to be taken to the warmer or the nursery, my husband will be going with the baby and stay with at all times.
NO Sedatives after birth. This will adversely impact bonding/breastfeeding
The baby will be accompanying us to recovery and remaining with us the entire stay
Please administer Vitamin K
DO NOT administer Hepatitis B vaccine please
NO EYE OINTMENT


After care of myself and the baby
Please administer Vitamin K
DO NOT administer Hepatitis B vaccine please
NO EYE OINTMENT
NO CIRCUMCISION
NO BOTTLES, FORMULA, ARTIFICIAL NIPPLES
DO NOT BATHE MY BABY
I have an increased risk of stroke, I would like to get up and walk as soon as humanly possible
Please remove the catheter as soon as possible (Even if it is the middle of the night)
Please allow for me to see a lactation consultant as soon as possible after birth
I would like a hospital grade breast pump ready and available for me to ensure proper milk production
I will be taking home my placenta for encapsulation
