    Finally got around to writing my birth plan.

    Please can you let me know what you think or if I have missed anything.

    BIRTH PARTNER:

    Jason - Partner/Father.

    LABOUR:

    I would like to remain mobile and upright as much as possible.
    I would like to use the birthing ball.
    I am happy with students being present.

    MONITORING:

    I would like intermittent monitoring as I want to stay mobile for as long as possible. If the baby has shown signs of distress I will have continuous monitoring by whatever means is best for the baby.

    PAIN RELIEF AND MEDICATION:

    I have been offered an anti-sickness tablet. I would like to have this anti-sickness tablet.
    I am happy for a cannula to be inserted as a precautionary measure.

    I will be using my TENS machine as much as I can.
    Secondly I would like to try gas and air.
    Thirdly I would like to try Pethidine.

    CEASAREAN:

    I would like to avoid another caesarean unless the baby is in distress.

    EPISIOTOMY:

    I would prefer tear naturally than have an episiotomy unless advised otherwise.
    I would like guidance when to push to allow the perineum to stretch and to reduce risk of the perineum tearing.

    DELIVERY:

    I would like to be on all fours or against the head of the bed when delivering the baby.

    IMMEDIATELY AFTER DELIVERY:

    I would like the cord to stop pulsing before the cord is cut.
    My partner Jason DOES NOT wish to cut the cord - unless he changes his mind on the day.
    I would like the injection to bring on the delivery of the placenta.
    I would like to see the placenta.

    I would like the baby to receive the Vitamin K injection.
    I am planning on breast-feeding.
