a few family members have asked if i have a birth plan put together yet but
a) i thought i was WAY too early to start doing that!
b) my midwife/GP hasn't mentioned what i have to put in it... or mentioned it at all
so what do you put in a birth plan? and when did you girls put yours together? i thought mine was pretty straight forward, hospital birth and gas + air please! i'm stuck on what else needs to go in there though
the plan pretty much goes out the window.. basically they just want to know in advance if you want offered the epidural or not, if you'd like a water birth.. if you want to stay in the same room as your baby, if you're going to breastfeed (to avoid giving them bottles/pacifiers) - you can find sample birth plans online and look at those to get some ideas.
There's loads of birth plan templates online. Babycentre.co.uk has a good template and so does cowandgate. I just searched 'birth plans' on google to get an idea. Although I've heard from a lot of people that they always go out of the window! Lol xx
