Re: Birth Plan for Hospital
what she said! I'm a nurse (although I don't have much experience in labor & delivery) and I really highly doubt the vast majority of nurses would read this (and, in particular, remember it), it's very extensive and gives off a bad vibe.

ETA: I had a natural birth at a hospital without a doula that was not stressful at all thanks to a wonderful nurse. Unfortunately the demeanor and helpfulness of the staff will likely be luck but I think the birth plan in it's original format may start you off on the wrong foot. I had a birth plan but it was much more for me and my hubby.
