My advice is do what you want, refuse what you don't. If you need you think you'll need help having the birth you want, hire a doula.

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.
