|I really don't want a christmas baby. Can i just keep denying it til the kiddo pops out?
I keep telling DH that I am going to cross my legs until New Year's
I don't kow if we are going to find out our baby's sex or not.
I haven't gotten to writing my birth plan yet, but there are some questions that I need to ask my OB/GYN at our next appt.:
1.How often do you perform episiotomies?
2.Will you support my decision to avoid an episiotomy?
3.What is your stand on induction? How long do you wait until you induce?
4.Will you support my decision not to induce except in extreme cases (fetal distress, mother distress)?
5.Will you support my decision to have a doula with me at all times from admission through delivery?
6.Will you support my decision to refuse Cytotec as a way to induce contractions either before OR after birth?
7.Does the hospital allow food/ beverage during labor?
8.Will you support my decision to labor in the shower if I desire?
9.Will a birth bar be available to me if I request it?*
10.Can I move around freely to help gravity progress my labor?*
These are the questions I have come up with. Does anyone have others?
*Note-- my doctor works in the hospital I will deliver in. Some of these questions she may know the answers to only because she does rounds and may be more familiar than private practice doctors.
