Elective c-section birth plan


Did anybody write one?
My midwife has suggested I write one up in order to feel a bit more at ease with the whole thing.
I wrote one for my other two childrenís births but both went out the window and ended very differently to what I had planned so Iím hesitant to try another one; although I understand that this one would be quite different.

Not really sure what you would put in one..? To be fair I had an emergency one last time so didn't get to choose much but I don't know what you are able to choose with an elective? I assume they mean about having skin to skin and breastfeeding/bottle etc?

Yes, thatís it. Midwife also suggested to put down if you are aware of what happens and donít want to hear about the ins and outs before you go through to have the procedure, you can jot that down. I think she meant it to be more of a cathartic excercise to help me see this section, after two emergencies, in a different light; to begin to imagine what it will be like on the day itself. Although, after two pretty hectic, long and scary births, Iím not sure itís that easy to believe all will go to Ďplaní. X
