 I didn't have one nor had I heard of one when I was pregnant. I knew I wanted a healthy baby and an epi. I got both.

That's all I want too. No birth plan for me.

I didn't want any interventions. I wanted to be left alone by staff. I didn't need their support, help or options. I knew what I was doing and just needed to do my thing. I got what I wanted.

Edited to add: I had no written plan. I just had DH handle all the staff for me.

With my first I was planning a water birth. I ended up with an epidural though. Shooting for a water birth this time around too, so we'll see how this one goes x)

I think a healthy baby is pretty much a given.

I had to request my husband be at te birth so I guess that counts? I also didn't want to be on my back to push and I didn't want an epidural. I got to labor in water, though, which I had not planned on doing lol.

Pain killers and a baby other than that how it happened didn't matter. I got both.

I never knew anyone who had a plan go their way lol.

Always found them silly.

I wanted to deliver my babies however it happened and prayed they came out healthy, happy, and screaming bloody murder....I got my wish.

My birth plan was to follow my mommy instincts and go with the flow. It worked beautifully. I wish more people were trusting of their bodies.
