So I really want to make a birth plan this time around because when I'm in labor I don't want to be answering all the nurse's questions and I tend to be a control freak and want everything (afterwards) done my way. When I was pregnant with Aiden, I made a birth plan and brought it up to my doctor and he said he didn't do those. I was a little confused but just let it roll off my back because I formula fed right away and didn't need any special directions for the hospital staff after Aiden was born. This time, though, I want to try breastfeeding right away and therefore have some different ideas about what I want to happen after my little girl is born. Like getting to breastfeed her as soon as possible, scheduling time with the breastfeeding consultant, etc. I'm sure I can tell hospital staff all of this when I get admitted, but I probably won't be thinking straight once I'm in labor. So my questions are: *When should I make my birth plan? *How can I get my doctor to review it with me? *Should I make an extra copy or two to bring with me to the hospital to give to them when I'm admitted? *If I do give one to the hospital staff, should I also send one with my pre-registration forms? I'm sure a couple of these questions have been asked before, but I'm really lazy and don't want to look through the section.
