have few copies of your birth plan.
Give one to your OB/midwife, your husband or any one else who will be at the birth.
Just so that every one is well aware of your wishes.
Communication leading up to the birth on your wishes would be an idea too.

I'm at Bankstown Hospital. What you had Gothchick is pretty much what I expected and why I wasn't freaked about a c-sect, but apparently it won't be happening. I'm not good at being the 'freaked out hormonal pregnant woman' but maybe I need to practice before my appt on Tues when I bring it up!

Rachell I don't have a birth plan yet, is there a special process or is it just a list of demands (like movie stars have on set ). Before now I wasn't really fussed but now I think I need one! Do the hold much weight?

Just demand it. If they have a legit reason for not allowing you then fine, not much you can do about it, but I don't see why they would stop you...

They do skin to skin at the public but next door at the private they say they do not have enough staff to allow it. I was not going to accept that so offered to pay a midwife a 4 hr shift to keep bub with me in theatre and recovery. They said its something they can arrange for me.

I had an emmergency CS in public system, didn't have skin to skin but bub was 4.5 weeks prem so could have been the reason. I didn't have my birth plan ready yet so also didn't think to ask and I was still so shocked by the early birth. Bub never left me though, he was checked over and had mini cuddles wrapped while I was being stitched up but otherwise he stayed on the side of the room i was in where I could see him. DH also stayed with him all the time. They wheeled my bed and his crib together into recovery, and then together back to my room.

Mine was at a public hospital but I was a private patient and had my own ob perform the surgery. Don't know if that made any difference though. I was given skin to skin time once bub had been checked (that only took a few minutes) and the only time he wasn't on me was when they moved me off the operating table and back onto a bed so I could be wheeled to recovery. He was then put straight back on me.
