What do you think? Too wishy-washy?

Totally unexpected and a great read to start the morning.  I think it's an excellent birth plan to help the staff understand your needs at the very delicate time of birth (and 40 days after).

Thank you. :) I'm tempted to actually post it on the door of the birth suite when I have the baby, but my flatmate said they might take the baby away. :p

Thanks for the laugh, I needed it... and that's the greatest birth plan I have ever read! :-)  I'm a little anti- birth plan ( yes I know that sounds weird..) because of how my youngest was born so that made my day. love.gif

Must you have olive colored walls?  I mean, that is a bit nit picky, don't you think?

 

 

BTW...you really need to post this.  i think the nurses and docs need a good laugh.

Smokering!  Thank you for causing me to visit your most entertaining blog.  Fun writing!  The birth plan was a hoot but I was pleasantly distracted into reading more.  You should have a prize.  Do you have a prize?  If so you should have another prize.

Can it be vanilla beans? :p I'm always fascinated/jealous/perplexed by food bloggers who say "1 vanilla bean... I'm using fancy Tahitian beans that a reader sent me". I have never in all my blog-trawling days visited a food blog and thought "Hey, cool blog... I will track down the blogger's address and send her vanilla beans". It just doesn't occur to me. Maybe that makes me nasty and maladjusted. But every time I see someone saying this, I get a stab of desire to start a food blog of my own and receive tasty offerings in the mail. Fortunately the stab lasts just long enough for me to realise that a) I can't take decent photos to save my life, and would probably cut the heads off all my muffins and make them look drab and untrustworthy, and b) I live in New Zealand, and even the generosity of a blog reader inclined to send bloggers vanilla beans would probably pale at the shipping costs. Life ain't fair sometimes.
