Re: Birth Plan for Hospital

I think it's great you know what you want and have articulated it well on paper. My main reaction is that it's way too long. I don't know if the nurses/docs will have the time to read it. My recommendation is that you shave it down to one side of one page. Bullet points are good, I'd stay away from paragraphs. I had a birth plan for my hospital births (2 of them) OB gave me a form. It was one side of one page and even then there were nurses who never looked at it. The longer version above is great to talk about with your partner/doula/support person. That's my 2-cents! Good luck!
