Re: Birth Plan?

Thank you, birdinhand! With my first child the hospital basically laughed at birth plans. I don't remember anyone asking me what I wanted, I remember being told what I was getting. It sucked. I got what I wanted but I had to fight for it. Not very relaxing.

The hospital has since undergone a MAJOR redo! Among other fantastic things, they now encourage a written birth plan and even send out a basic form for mom's and labor partners to fill out and have ready when the times comes. I've filled theirs out but I'm going to redo it to include some of your wording

Basically, we're going for a water birth at the hospital with a midwife, delayed cord cutting, no visitors until after our hour with baby.
