I agree. I just can't picture things like letting mom and dad discover the sex, artifical nipple use, etc to be important or relevant in a true emergency.

I honestly think a big "Dad or mom is to be with baby all of the time" would help with most of it.

If it is a true emergency then they don't read anything they just do what it takes to save mom and baby's lives. But in the case of maternal exhaustion and other non-emergent transfers they usually read them. They already know that you desire a natural childbirth obviouslly because you are transferring from home. So it is not necessary to list every little detail. I try to focus on the really important stuff and the afterbirth stuff involving baby's care.

I plan to make two (one for emergent and one for non-emergent).

The one for emergent will say

Hep B
Vit K
Antibiotic eye ointment
Bottles/ Formula
Single-layer repair for a c-section

I need help with the C-section part as well. I have placenta previa (or did at 20 weeks), so a C-section is a definite possibility, unfortunately.
