Quoting MixedCooke: Not really because you can't plan for everything possible that occurred during the baby's time of arrival. It's more of a direction you would like to take regarding trying natural ways to bring the baby down or being strapped into the bed, pain management with or without meds, vaginal versus c-section, birthing in the bed or in the water, etc.
Quoting JessiFaye: No, you don't. I didn't, and I'm glad. I'm a very go with the flow type of person. Really, you probably already have one in your head. Like, I knew what decisions I wanted to make for him, etc. I knew what drugs I wanted (lol). I never put anything down on paper.
Nope I never did with any of my 4.
I'm having a natural home birth without drugs and using a mid wife. I tried a water birth last time, but the warm water was so relaxing that my labor stopped progressing, and I had to get out of the tub and walk for what seemed like hours. I ended up having my daughter on the bed on my hands and knees. I was going to try to get back in the tub, but the contractions were so hard and the urge to push was so great that I couldn't make it back to the birthing tub.
