So homebirthing mommas did you write birth plans? If so could you share them? In the next month or so my midwife asked for hubs and i to write our birthplan and  I am curious what others looked like for a homebirth.

Yep!!! Takes a lot of weight off my shoulders!


Quoting Mrs.Salz:

Isn't it awesome to have a practicioner who really cares about you and your wishes, and you don't have to write much down because she already does the things you want? :)

Quoting Precious333:

I didnt write a birth plan.for my homebirths, because my midwives were on the same page as me, so it didnt seem necessary. This time my midwife gave me a paper with several questions to consider. I know the most important things will remain the same, but I am not sure about other details such as if the kids will be present.



For me i just made sure they would be hands off, let me push how i wanted, dh catch the baby,.delayed cord clamping and on my chest right away. It really doesnt have to be complicated with a homebirth.

I just wanted to make sure that others didnt go all out and i will look like a slacker for just using the plan she gave as an example lol.
