    Thank-you all so much for posting your birth plans! I have 8 & a half weeks to go & will be having my 'birth plan' appointment with my midwife soon but I have now got a great starting point that I can take with me.

    Try not to get too caught up in the specifics of things.

    Start off with things that you absolutely do not 100% want.

    Just adding my birth plan. I had a homebirth so this was my hospital birth plan in case we needed to transfer:

    Birth Plan
    Name:
    Due Date: 
    Support people: partner/father midwives

    Philosophy: Natural, drug-free birth

    Labour & Birth

    Environment: Quiet, dim lights, music as desired

    Active labour:
    free to move as desired
    birth pool & shower
    bean bag/fit ball massage
    Calmbirth as prompted by father
    Photography
    Food & drink offered

    Monitoring:
    No foetal monitoring
    No vaginal/cervix examinations

    Pain Relief:
    Natural methods only
    Do not offer drugs

    Delivery:
    Spontaneous rupture of membranes
    No episiotomy
    Touch baby’s head when crowning
    See with mirror

    Immediately after delivery:
    Birth mother & father to ‘catch’ baby,
    place on mother’s chest
    Father to check & announce gender of baby

    Umbilical cord:
    Lotus Birth
    Placenta to be kept/remain with mother
    Physiological third stage – no injection
    Baby to remain with parent’s at all times

      In the event of a caesarean:

    Partner/father and midwife to be present
    Screen lowered at delivery
    Photos
    All other preferences as above (baby immediately placed on mother’s chest, baby to remain with parents at all times, father to announce gender)  

    Baby Care
    Permission from parents before any procedure
    Breastfeeding/milk only
    No artificial feeds
    No vitamin K
    No Hepatitis B vaccination
    No Newborn Screening test (heel prick)
    No test for jaundice

    (
    Notes:
    I didnt want a lotus birth but was listed to avoid any confusion as to the definition of 'delayed' (did delayed cord clamping)

    Same with heel prick test (ds had it).

    Kept it to dot points so that it gets read. As short as possible too.

    Had an A4 sign of baby care to put on crib in case bub is in nursery (so there is no confusion as to your choices when you are not there - ie. Someone many think bub has 'missed' the hep B shot rather than parents refusing). Birth plans dont get read after the birth. )
