I want an all natural birth with no pain meds and want to try to completely avoid an episiotomy. Do I write that down and hand it to someone? hahaha
I don't really understand.

Google search "birth plan generator." Browse through the list of websites and select one you like. They give you a list of common things mothers do and don't want during labor/delivery/post-partum for you to select from. You print it out at the end and give a copy to your doc and to the hospital. Be prepared though, doctors and nurses understand that people change their minds from their birth plans and will ask you what you want each time and make suggestions regardless of what your birth plan says. Of course you can say "no" but it is still their job to keep you informed. I gave birth to a 9.5lb baby and my heroic "mother-of-the-year" birth plan went out the window. I clung to the side of the delivery bed huffing at the doctor and nurses "just tell me what the to do!" Now, not every one's delivery is like that; keep an open mind.
