I was told this by my Bradley teacher (a nurse for 14 years previously) and confirmed it with a bunch of MWs and nurses through the years in conversation -- NOT OVER ONE PAGE! If you come in with those crazy on-line templates that are 14 pages long, they will totally ignore you and your plan. We got everything we needed into one page (and had a great birth!)
Mama to ds 11, ds 7, dd 5, dd 2, and dd born on 6/17/12!
I have a suggestion, I know this is really out there and may not be within your comfort zone but I'm going to throw it at you anyway since you've considered UC...
Maybe you could get a hotel room near the hospital and UC at the hotel room?
A little less out there...labor at the hotel room until you feel pushy then go to the hospital to push the baby out?
OR get a hotel room and decide whether you want to stay there and birth or head to the hospital?
You might not want to stay home that long anyway, living with your IL's and all, making it so you end up at the hospital earlier than you would have liked.
