Every pregnancy site I have been to, or magazine I have read, says that you need to make a birth plan, and hand copies of it to your delivering doctor and nurse team so everyone knows your wishes.
So, here's mine. Bear with me.
Preferred Method of Delivery: Natural
Drug-free or Epidural: Epidural
C-section?: If necessary
Induced labor: As of now, no.
And that's it. No water births, or music, or camcorders, or anything like that. I just want it to be as smooth as possible. I say "as of now, no" on induced labor, but if I am still pregnant at Valentine's Day and my baby was due around New Year's, I'm pretty sure that no is going to change to a "Yes! For the love of all that is holy, YES!" simply because I will want this baby OUT of me at that point.
So there is the final plan. I don't think any adjustments will be necessary. And I'm not going to print it off and hand it to my barely-speaks-English doctor or the nursing staff. It's pretty simple. Just give me drugs and I'll be okay.
