I recently changed to a new OB when I was 28 weeks. I asked her how she felt about birth plans. She told me that birth plans lead to higher c-section rates? UMM what? I am extremely disappointed in the OB's that I have chosen to deliver my baby. I just know that I have to keep saying what I want and not refusing to give in out of fear! Has anyone ever heard of this? I am still going to bring my birth plan to my next appointment and bring it with me when I get ready to deliver at the hospital.
