I had a friend who took newborn pics at a hospital and she said the nurses just laughed when people handed them those.
Mine starts off: "My husband, David, and I had a wonderful natural childbirth experience at [this hospital] in May of 2004 when our son Killian was born – THANK YOU! Our birth plan is basically the same this time, so we're expecting another beautiful natural childbirth!" and then continues on to list the things that are important to us (1) during delivery and (2) during our hospital stay. At the bottom, I also put, "I understand that any or all of the above could be compromised (with my consent) if there is a medical emergency." just above where I sign it.
