I'm working on a birth plan, and I know a few things that I am going to put in, but my question is are there things that if my OB says I need to do, that I actually need to do? If I disagree with something(s), what situation(s) am I looking at?
A few examples are:
I had an US recently, where they said the baby has cord wrapped around the neck twice. I've been reading, and looking at what that means, and I've come across different scenarios of handling that WRT labor and delivery; some clamp and cut the cord, and some don't, and then there are a couple of different ways the ones that don't cut the cord handle the situation. I want to request it not be cut, and that they try one of the other methods of handling it. What are possible outcomes of my requesting that, if they don't want to do it that way?
Pretty much, the situation is, DF knows that I've done a lot of research into things, and that while I'm not formally educated, that I do have a pretty good idea of what I want and safety of different things and stuff like that, and he's a little worried that if I'm too determined/argue with too much stuff, we're going to get kicked out of the hospital or something.
