How is everyone doing with their birth planning? Is there anything you are planning to do to make it special? I'm having a lot of fun planning this time around because I have a bit better idea of how things will go since I've already had one child with this same midwife.
Planning this time around is easier in some ways because I've already researched and made the medical decisions (and they pretty much all come automatically with my home birth midwife... it's not like she's going to lop off my son's foreskin even if I asked her to, and she's not going to take my baby away from me or use any chemicals on/in him/her/me without talking to me about it first. That part of my birth plan should be mostly a matter of tweaking my birth plan from last time, which is mostly a back-up plan for if we have to go to the hospital.
In other ways, it's much more complicated having another child... who is still nursing! She's really a mommy's girl, and I think she'll do great as long as her needs are met... it's just that nobody knows how to meet her needs like I do. She'll have 1 or both grandmas in town, and I'm sure everything will go wonderfully. I just want to have some things prepared for her, some overarching philosophy to communicate to the people who may be taking care of her.
How are birth plans going for you all?
