That's gross. Basically they're saying they don't care a lick what the mother wants. Yuck.

Our hospital encourages moms to write up a birth plan. Along with the prenatal class info pack, they include an outline booklet - it's a booklet because it explains all the different options/terms, but you could just "fill in the blanks" with your choices. It's actually very well written and laid out.
