Re: Can you critique/offer any pointer on my birth plan please?
Thanks for letting me know about my Dh's name in there still! I have talked with my OB about nearly all of these things and he is very open to what I am hoping for, the plan is mostly t give the nurses and NICU doctors so they know too. Thanks for you tips!

I know your situation is different so I would be sure to have a few people with you that can focus on the labor and delivery and then one to stay with you and one with baby if/when your seperated. Make sure your birth team knows your wants specificly so they can pay attention and advocate for you. I hope you get the birth experience you want
Just wanted to mention you left your DHs name at the end and in the cord cutting part.
I changed some wording and tried to condensed things a bit, copy and pasted the revision in the original post if I could get some more feedback I'd appreciate it! Thanks!
