    when did you ladies discuse your birth plans?? i feel like i've not discussed anything about the birth even though we briefly talked about breastfeeding. just feel like im missing out a bit (or should i say a lot) i've not seen the labour ward or gone through anything regarding birth.

    I signed up the the NHS Choices website, which gives you the option to write your birth plan online. It's not perfect, but makes you think of the important options :)

    i've decided not to do one. i don't want anything specific and all the other things i can think of are generally encouraged by midwifes anyway such as moving around, changing positions etc
    i'm opting for a homebirth and expect when the midwife arrives i'll still be able to hold a conversation to answer any questions.
    i think a birth plan is more about stating specifics your DON'T want if you feel strongly about something.
