Do you do them? What are some things that are absolute musts for a good birth plan?
I've never done one, kinda always just went with the flow and whatever was best for babies. 3 of my kiddos were born early as well as having pre-term labor and having it stopped multiple times, and PROM with those 3. Labor never began after my water broke or never intensified so all 3 of those were augmentations with Pitocin, the other 2 kids were full on inductions with only Pitocin for medical reasons. I've had epi's with all of them & hated being stuck in the bed.
I'm determined to do things different this time around, for starters my SO is very, very supportive and will do everything he possibly can to make things easier for me, we've hired a doula already & both love her, so that alone will make a huge difference I'm sure. I also have a different OB and will be delivering at a different hospital only because I moved across country from where all my other babies were born.
I also have a history of long labors and am considered high risk...so help me mommas, I'm at a loss with this birth plan thing. My doula will help write one, but wants me to come up with some ideas first. I'm only certain of what I DON'T want lol.
