Are You Preparing a Birth Plan?

Many of the birth plans you may see in books or birth classes are simply checklists of medical procedures you do or don't want. To be truly useful, a birth plan should include much more. If you want to give birth normally, you'll need to develop strategies for making it happen. You'll also need to talk with your support team and your caregiver as your plans take shape. The more restrictive your birth site is, the more carefully you'll need to plan and the harder you'll have to work to keep your birth normal.

Have you thought about creating a birth plan for your coming labor/delivery?  If so, what things will you be including in your plan?

Hmmm.  I hadn't thought much about this yet.  I think I'll bring it up at my appointment next week and see what my doc thinks.
