The hospital that I will be delivering my first baby at demands a completed birth plan .
They handed me thick booklet asking me tons of preferences and choices. Like if I want a warm water bath, massage, what position I would like to deliver in and such.
Uh... sounds like a great idea right? Wrong! I have never been in labor. I don't know what I want or won't want.
The only things that I am sure of is that I want drugs and an epidural. I am an anxious person that cannot tolerate pain. I would prefer not to have a c-section but beyond that I have no preferences.
I know that it sounds like a petty thing to complain about, however, as a nurse I know that the plans are rarely followed anyway AND I have to make an appointment with an OB nurse prior to delivering to go over the plan. Sounds like a waste of time to me.
